BOOK SPOTLIGHT + GIVEAWAY: THE CARETAKER OF IMAGINATION BY Z.R SOUTHCOMBE AND ILLUSTRATED BY JANE THORNE

ABOUT THE BOOK

Bored with his normal life, John Carroll runs away with his faithful cat in search of adventure. When he meets a real-life pirate, John realizes there is much more to the world than he’d ever thought possible – magic is real, and in desperate need of a hero. John must convince the (once fearsome) Captain Simon Peabody to join him on a fantastic and perilous quest to find the only person who can save magic from being lost forever: the Caretaker of Imagination. This wondrous tale harks back to the style of classic children’s literature. Perfect as a read-aloud, it is sure to delight readers of all ages.

Review Extracts

★★★★★ “The characters are lively, the plot is intriguing, and the illustrations are adorable… I read the entire book in one sitting, totally immersed in the storytelling…” – Inger, Goodreads.

★★★★✫ “His adventures are certainly likely to please children: there are cute animals, a retired pirate, a dragon and the Caretaker himself, who seems a bit of a fraud. It’s all a bit of a crazy mix, but then that’s what the imagination can sometimes be!” – Mike, Goodreads.

★★★★★ “To label this book merely as a children’s book would not do it justice… Z.R. Southcombe never once “talks down” to the reader. John struggles in his search, and his emotional ups and downs are real… highly recommended for children, and those adults who feel the banality of daily life has taken something precious away.” – Paul, Amazon.

★★★★★ “Truly funny, witty, sad and happy The Caretaker of Imagination proves to be a great read that never leaves you bored and always wondering what happens next while enjoying what is happening at the time.” – Mark, Goodreads.
