five star review transparent


Congratulations to Tim Wright!

 Book 3 of The Adventures of Toby Baxter is our latest certified great read!




“An Ancient Prophecy. A Giant Quest. A Plethora of Homonyms.
Thirteen-year-old Toby Baxter is in a foul mood, and sitting in the middle seat on an eight-hour flight isn’t helping. Nor is the fact that he has to read Of Mice and Men on his vacation! His vacation—and mood—is interrupted, however, when he’s summoned back to RiverHome, landing him in the middle of a giant uprising. Linked by an ancient prophecy to his former arch-nemesis, Clygon, Toby is tasked with repairing the Sword—the lifeblood of RiverHome. To do so, the one-time enemies must battle rebel giants, trolls, stalagmites, and a primeval force in the form of a snake residing in Para-dies. Faced once again with an impossible challenge, will Toby seek the GOOD, or will his foul mood and growing anxieties sidetrack him from his call to be a HERO?
Filled with humor, tongue-in-cheek dialogue, and heroic life lessons, Aloha RiverHome: The GOOD Prophecy continues the magical adventures of Toby Baxter as he learns what it means to be a wise, good, hero. Toby’s latest Quest is the perfect read for middle schoolers, their parents and grandparents, and anyone looking for a unique, engaging, fast-paced fantasy adventure.
