Night Buddies and the Pineapple Cheesecake Scare
Written by Sands Hetherington
Illustrations by Jessica Love
Paperback 128 pages Also available in Kindle and Nook
Publisher: Dune Buggy Press; One edition (June 1, 2012)
About the Book: When pineapple cheesecakes start disappearing from the world’s only Pineapple Cheesecake Factory across town, a zany red crocodile named Crosley enlists the help of young John Degraffenreidt to straighten things out. In this adventure-fantasy, the unlikely pair sneaks out of John’s house by becoming invisible, thanks to the I-ain’t-here doodad Crosley uses from the bunch of whatchamacallits hanging on his belt. Danger lies ahead as they embark on their Program, the Night Buddies word for Adventure, and make their way around the Borough chasing down enemies and dealing with the perils at hand.
The story is filled with well-drawn fascinating characters embellished with some excellent illustrations by Jessica Love. The fonts change with emotion and circumstances, a fact that makes every page a little artwork that keep the child’s eye involved in the book. And just to make sure the youngsters reading this book have the inside information for a mystery, a glossary of ‘Night Buddies Uncommon Words’ is supplied – explaining ‘Jeeks’, ‘Wuff’, ‘Snerk!’ etc. The 128-page book is packed with all-new picture drawings by illustrator Jessica Love.
