Product Description

Sometimes you have to get lost to figure out where you're going.
All Jackson wants is to be the hero, just for once in his life. The hero who steps in at the last minute to save the universe. The hero who saves the entire village from a raging fire. Great Aunt Harriett is always telling him find his own story, but so far his story doesn't seem very exciting.
Until he falls into Great Aunt Harriett's hair, that is. There Jackson will encounter a world of elves, trap doors, bubblegum-blowing birds, hairy-backed spiders, kangaroo meat, and perilous danger which requires . . . a hero.

Author Bio

Jenn Kelly lives in Ottawa, Canada, but her heart lives in Paris. Or Hawaii. She hasn’t decided yet. She is an undercover garden guru, painter, and chef, which has absolutely nothing to do with this book. She won a writing award in grade 4, failed English Lit in university, spent many years writing bad poetry, and then decided to write a book. This is it. She is married to her best friend, Danny, and is mom to a five-year-old boy and a dog who worries too much. She embraces the ridiculousness and disorganization of life.

    Like reading my 9-yr old's mind!

    This book that I'm going to tell you about was perhaps the most PERFECT book for my nine-year old son. It's like reading his mind—like all the stories/adventures he makes up—like his dreams and daydreams—but put together in a more polished way.

    This book, Jackson Jones: The Tale of a Boy, and Elf, and a Very Stinky Fish was superb—it's just right for the age group for which it was written. It's imaginative, quirky, silly, and has a wonderful amount of rabbit trails. It's the story of a boy's overnight journey into a magical world in his great-aunt's hair! Weird, huh?  It's an amazing journey for a normal, kind of insecure young boy—as he travels along with the help of a guide (Meeka the elf)—into many different mini-adventures and meets many more folks living in "Great-Aunt Harriet's Hair." In his travels he meets several very wise residents of this place (Great-Aunt Harriet's Hair!) who teach him lessons about his value as a person and his outlook on life as well as teaching him about "The Author" who created him/life/etc and has a plan for his life.

    I don't want to give any more of the story away, you need to read this book if you have kids in this age range! It's a fun fun read, and it has a nice gentle message about life and God's control/purpose/plan for it. It's not an evangelistic book by any means, but it's a great nudge in relation to God's hand in each of our lives. This will be a great addition to my son's library—of course it's not the only type of reading material he loves reading, but it's certainly a winner!

    I would totally recommend this book! I will say that some readers might find it totally ridiculous, not their type of reading, but for my son and his friends—this is it!

    I received a copy of this book for free from Zondervan Publishers for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
