Publisher's Description

When family reunion day arrives, Jackson, a lonely ten-and-a-half-year-old boy, is loathe to share his room with Great Aunt Harriet. She's a hundred and twelve years old, talks unintelligibly out of her toothless mouth, and has very, very, very big hair. But when he falls into her piles of hair during the night, Jackson encounters a world he'd never dreamed existed. In this magical fantasy complemented by zany illustrations, Jackson meets a host of extraordinary characters and finds that his life, far from being average and uneventful, is being written by the great Author, in whom all stories find their meaning.

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.


Jackson Jones: The Tale of a Boy, an Elf, and a Very Stinky Fish by Jenn Kelly tells the story of Jackson, an average ten-year-old boy who has just moved and doesn't have any friends at his new school. He likes to write and dreams of having adventures, but he doesn't think he has any chance of ever becoming a hero—until he falls into Great Aunt Harriett's very, very big hair. There, Jackson meets an elf, has multiple adventures, and hears consistent references to an Author who made everything and has a plan for him.

This juvenile novel flows easily and has characters that are easy for kids to relate to. Kelly sometimes uses words younger readers may not understand, but she always follows the words with humorous definitions so that kids will not become confused. The plot has numerous unpredictable twists and Kelly's sense of humor adds to this sense of unpredictability.

Kids reading this story will learn the truth of Psalm 139:14—"I am fearfully and wonderfully made." They will also learn that God has a story He has written just for them in which they are the heroes and heroines. Jackson Jones is appropriate for children in upper elementary school and junior high, but if parents choose to read it to their children, they, too, will find themselves enjoying it. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
