Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully by Rose English

Happy Halloween to you all. As a special celebration Book 2 in the Young Ebenezer series is currently on a special Halloween Promo starting at just 99p or 99c for our dotcom friends. A children’s book, a story in verse.

‘A Halloween treat, much better than sweets.’

A time for candy and costumes,
pumpkins and ‘Trick or Treat’.
But beware of the bully
lurking just down the street.

Ebenezer is really excited! It’s his first Halloween to go out ‘Trick or Treating’. Jacob Marley is excited too, but this school bully plans to steal all the kids’ sweets. Can Eb and his friends, along with the magical clock Grandfather Time teach Jacob the error of his ways? Or is the boy doomed to a life of crime, just like his wicked father?

The story of ‘Ebenezer and the Bully’ is a magical rhyming tale of behaviour matters, and the importance of being kind. It’s a treat for families to share or for reading alone, aimed at children aged 8-12 years old. With characters loosely based around the Charles Dickens classic ‘A Christmas Carol’, you’ll meet the Ghost of Christmas Past – a golden red puppy named Miss Ruby Heart – along with the Grim Reaper who will surprise Jacob by revealing his future self.

Young Ebenezer Christmas Teaser

*Boing! Boing! Boing!

Grandfather Time,
chimes out loud and clear,
he’s telling us all,
Christmas soon will be here.
The fire is burning;
the room’s all aglow,
outside the snow’s falling,
so gentle and slow.

Many young boys and girls
are on their Playstations,
X-boxes, Nintendos,
throughout all the nation.
Yet one little fellow
is still not content,
to get even more presents,
is his main intent.

Now young Ebenezer,
is a naughty young lad,
not sharing with others,
he really is bad.
So Grandfather Time has
been watching him grow,
with a feeling of sadness
that is making him low.

It is time for the boy,
a lesson to learn,
that he has to be good,
for the presents to earn.
He must learn to share,
with the girls and the boys
and learn how to give
and not take others’ toys.

Well I hope you enjoyed these little teasers
