Today, it’s my pleasure to introduce a wonderful children’s book, Keldane the Cursed, written by Jeffrey Hollar.

Keldane’s struggles to survive school and live up to the expectations of others are something everyone – young and old – can relate to.

My grandson and I read this book together, and between Keldane’s mishaps and Barnabas’ misfortunes, we did a lot of laughing.

We found ourselves empathizing with Keldane and his hapless victims, and we’re certain you’ll enjoy this entertaining adventure as well!


Story Excerpt:

A plume of dust billowed from the ancient book causing him to sneeze violently and repeatedly.

“It’s no use guys. I can’t find what I need in this stupid book! I’ve been through it over and over and it’s just not here!”

He spoke to the two animals sitting on the table in front of him. The large greenish frog, Desmond, looked at him with a mournful gaze and croaked softly. The ginger cat, Lydia, looked at Keldane with a malevolent gaze, her tail swishing angrily from side to side.

“You guys KNOW transmogrification isn’t my best subject. I’d change you back in a second if I could only remember the bloody spell.”

The frog croaked more loudly and the cat hissed menacingly as if to say nothing was Keldane’s “best subject”. Although he was the son of THE most powerful wizard in history, Keldane was, unfortunately, so inept even his wizarding instructors openly referred to him as Keldane the Cursed.

      I’m about halfway through the book and delighted with it. Keldane is one of those protagonists that anyone who’s ever made a mess of things can relate to. Good stuff Jeff. Thanks for letting us join in the fun. (And Bullish, a great snippet. Will you move back in here and read me stories before bed each night?)
