Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd-Stanton

This is the beginning of a new series for young ones.  Arthur is one of the lesser known Brownstone's but he's just as brave as the others.  He sets out on a quest to find the person who his village needs to restart their fire so they don't freeze.  He finds more than that person...

Nobrow Publishing and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 14th.

Arthur has always been a bit fanciful.  He hangs out in the woods and deals with the fairies and goblins and the village thinks of him as playing with demons.  When a huge dog comes to town and kills people, puts out their fire and ruins homes, it's almost hopeless.  But Arthur dares hope and starts off his journey.

The illustrations show who he encounters along the way and the trip is hazardous.  It gets even worse before it's over.  But Arthur is up for the challenge and his kindness and ways of doing things pay him back by rescues and helping him complete his quest.

I can't wait to see what other adventures the Professor's relatives have had!
