'The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories’ is a collection of illustrated children's magical adventure stories about brave (and not so brave) boys, girls, wizards, witches, talking animals and more. The tales are set in strange and wonderful worlds, sparkling with magic. There’s also a selection of rhyming stories in the collection. These include some of my favourites the Epheline stories. He’s a very magical animal who is part cat, part Elephant, particularly cute, furry and purple as they come. He loves cakes and has the ability to let out a magical musical whistle, which sends children safely to sleep back in their own soft, warm beds. He prefers only to come out at night and is about to make some wonderful new friends in the woods and the park. The tales make great bedtime stories for kids. The story collection is aimed at boys and girls ranging in age from 5 to 8, although younger children can still enjoy being read to from the book and older children may enjoy the book too. There’s plenty of fun and adventures for any child. My magical book is available in paperback and in ebook form on the amazon kindle.

  Extract from 'The Tale Of Greta Gumboot And Other Stories'.
  Greta Gumboot was a particularly plump, rather wicked little witch. She had a lonely life, living in a stuffy little cottage at the edge of a large, lush green forest. Greta had quite peculiar taste in clothes. She always wore a large black pointy hat over her bright red hair, a long purple dress and big brown boots. Greta devoted her life to searching for the perfect tasty treat. Every day she went out into the woods and by the power of her dark wand an unlucky forest creature would become her next delectable bite to eat. Last Tuesday she changed a chubby old rabbit, who was actually a rather nice fellow, into a Belgian chocolate bunny. Then she nibbled his ears off one by one. The following day it was Cyril the snakes turn. In a bright flash of light he became a very large, very sticky, particularly sweet candy cane. Greta loved candy canes and gobbled it down as fast as she could, along with three jelly worms, which a few minutes earlier had been real slimy wriggling earthworms. She topped of the day with some crunchy butterfly biscuits, with purple and white icing. Only moments before they had been pretty butterflies fluttering about joyfully, enjoying the sunshine and the forests beautiful bluebells, primroses and daffodils. Now on that Thursday something very strange happened to Greta, while she was in the woods. She was creeping her way through some beautiful rhododendron bushes, with their large, sweet smelling bunches of pink, blue and white flowers. She hoped to find some poor unsuspecting soul to turn into her next mouth-watering treat. She sprang out into a little clearing, hoping to catch someone unawares, and instead she got a surprise of her own. A deep bellowing voice from nowhere, echoed all around her. “I” said the voice “Am Julius Beetroot, keeper of the ultimate treat!” “Ahh!” screamed Greta, with shock “who’s that?” She raised her wand to defend herself. “I’ll tell you again.” Said the voice “I am Julius Beetroot! And if you lower your wand I may allow you a taste of heaven itself. A treat far greater and more magical then anything any witch could ever conjure!” Greta lowered her wand slowly. “I’m listening,” she said with a sly smile. A cute, little red squirrel skipped out from among the trees dressed in a blue cape. Greta was greatly surprised when the mighty voice of Julius Beetroot echoed from its tiny lips “Follow me!” he instructed heartily. Greta raised her wand ‘Mmm chocolate squirrel.’ she thought ‘My favourite!’ ’

This is a fun book for children with tales of wizardry and magic. It is full of stories about dragons, unicorns and more. It also includes some enchanting rhymes. I enjoyed this book and it is suitable for children and adults of all ages. The stories, rhymes, and illustrations were all done by Lee. It is a nice creative work.



A Great Collection of Stories for Children(review by Barbara J. Smith) five stars on Amazon.com.

'The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories'five star rating.

"The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories," by Lee Pritchett, is a wonderful collection of stories set in a magical world. Greta Gumboot, the bad witch of the forest, loved turning forest animals into wonderful tasty treats. Imagine a real bunny turned into a chocolate bunny. Yummy! But, of course, this really wasn't a nice thing to do so Greta Gumboot was taught a lesson by those very same animals she'd eaten. What a cute story with a good lesson. Greta Gumboot, bad witch-turned-good, ends up helping others and being a good friend to those she used to turn into candy! Greta Gumboot is just the first of several exciting tales in this book. Although the book is geared for the 4- to 8-year-old child, I believe older children will also enjoy it. The tales include Gilby, a wizard's apprentice, who saves the kingdom, and Mr. Bumbles, the wizard who loses his hat and magic but, thanks to Greta Gumboot, receives both back along with a group of new friends. This book is full of wizards, witches, goblins, princesses, and even a kitten and an epheline (wondering what that is?). Each story is a unit unto itself but many of them are intertwined in a very intriguing way. Children will want to continue reading, not because it's passed their bedtime, but because the stories are so good. Luckily, the book is broken up into several tales so that he or she can start a new tale the following day. All the stories are great but my own personal favorite is Holly and the Unicorn. Holly gets all the forest animals, including a rabbit with headphones and a dancing bear, to help find the baby unicorn's Mum. This is just too cute. Each one of these tales could have been a book by itself, but Lee Pritchett has combined them all into one big book for your child to enjoy. This may be Mr. Pritchett's first book but it certainly won't be his last. And if you're wondering what an epheline is, you'll just have to read Lee Pritchett's "The Tale of Greta Gumboot and Other Stories!"
