The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton by Angela Shelton

Adventures of Tilda PinkertonChildren have a vivid imagination that can create worlds where none exist and make the obscure simple. Author Angela Shelton has also done this in her latest release, THE ADVENTURES OF TILDA PINKERTON.

This charming children’s fantasy takes readers on a journey that will have them laughing in no time. While written for youngsters, adults can delight in the whimsical tale as well.

Tilda Pinkerton is a mystical maker of magnificent hats that are both mysterious and magical. She takes an enormous fall and crash lands on Ooleeoo. Since her memory is a bit foggy, she doesn’t recall being hunted by the Keeper of Darkness.

Creating hats is what Tilda loves best and she has a unique talent for it. Her hats seem to make people do whatever they dream of. Wearing a Tilda hat causes people to act on their brilliant ideas they never believed they could do.

But the Mayor of Moodle doesn’t like what’s happening to the people wearing Tilda’s hats so he issues a ban on wearing them. The dark side of the Mayor is causing problems in Ooleeoo or is there something unworldly taking over?

It’s up to Tilda to save those she’s come to know, no matter the risk.

Shelton has created such an amazing fantasy world that it draws you in quickly and has you believing it could be real. Her eccentric characters are well-developed with unique traits that make you smile like Gladys the toad who thinks she‘s a cat. The story flows at a steady pace with suspension and humor.

THE ADVENTURES OF TILDA PINKERSTON is an enchanting tale that will delight readers of all ages. It will make a wonderful bedtime book to share with young toddlers, while entertaining older youngsters who read on their own and reigniting the imagination of adults who take a chance on a new adventure.

This is a wonderful book that adults can share and discuss with their youngsters, sparking their own imaginations. Looking forward to Tilda’s next tantalizing adventure.
