Author Jason Thibeault reading chapters from Gertrude's Broken Wand
About Gertrude's Broken Wand:
On an otherwise normal 4th grade school field trip, Rebecca gets separated from her classmates while trying to find the bathroom. But when she slips in the dark and falls down a hole, she ends up in the land of here, an enchanted kingdom that is suffering from a powerful curse...everyday is Halloween. But it's not costumed trick-or-treaters that roam the land nor is it candy they want. Ghosts, ghouls, werewolves, skeletons and a host of other baddies, eager for a taste of warm flesh, have turned the once beautiful land into a spooky landscape. Unfortunately, Rebecca's problems have only just begun for when she landed in here she also landed on Gertrude, the kingdom's witch, breaking her wand and the one chance to left the curse. Now Rebecca must get Gertrude's wand fixed, avoid getting eaten (or worse), and find a way home all before the sun sets. Because here needs a real name or it, and everything inside, will cease to exist forever.
If your kids love Goosebumps, the Wayside Schools, and Dragon Slayer Academy, they are sure to love Marmalade: Gertrude's Broken Wand.
