Beautifully written, extraordinarily powerful, One Two wins the 2017
Millennium Book Award
Jonny’s life changes dramatically when he’s taken into foster care by the wealthy and extremely beautiful Lady Kathleen Hunter -- and comes under the vigilant eye of Nanny Noo.
Jonny’s adventures begin when he finds the mysterious Golden Globe that shifts shapes and holds many secrets. This magical orb takes Jonny on all kinds of amazing and jaw-dropping adventures, high into the furthest regions of space and deep into an underwater world full of rowdy Sea Life -- who bubble up from Jonny’s bathtub drain to join in silly songs. These include Wall Eyed Wally and his three baby octopuses Stench, Carcass, and Harpoon; five young dolphins, Oink, Jube, Faraway, Blue Sky One Eye, and Sloppy Botty; Porka the Orca, Legs the Crab, and many more.
Zany, magical and totally original, Jonny Plumb and The Golden Globe conjures up the spirit of age old classics into the most beguiling of children’s tales. A full on childhood adventure from the very first page, author Kim Wheeler reminds us of the pure joy to be found when imagination is given free reign. With an engaging narrative, the suspension of disbelief may well be a requisite, but his young protagonist Jonny Plumb always feels real as he attempts to unravel the magical mystery in which he finds himself. A wonderfully drawn little character who Wheeler ably captures in cleverly nuanced dialogue and sublime turn of phrase. A read that combines vibrant illustrations with Wheeler’s whimsical rhymes, it’s one of those tales that will linger in the enquiring minds of young readers as they quickly take the ever endearing Jonny to their hearts.
The start of a magical series that deserves wide readership, Kim Wheeler has set his bar enviably high with the promise of good things to come. With an unreserved high recommendation, Jonny Plumb & The Golden Globe is certainly deserving of a place on your child’s bookshelf.
