Letter O on The A to Z April Challenge 2014

Our letter on the April A to Z Challenge is O today. My book is The Orphan and the Thief by Melissa LeGette. Genre: Fantasy


Book Title: The Orphan and the Thief

Author: M.L. LeGette

Description: Toad thought it’d be easy to steal from Mr. Edward P. Owl. Unfortunately for Toad, he isn’t the best of thieves. Caught in the act, he’s in more trouble than ever before. Now to save his hide, Toad must track down five rare potion ingredients for Mr. Owl. Or else.

All Melena Snead wants is her family back, but after the Miggens Street Fire, that isn’t very likely. Orphaned and miserable, forced to work in an apothecary, she’s determined to find Milo, her missing brother. No matter what.

When Melena finds Toad ransacking her apothecary, Toad gets a nasty shock: apothecaries don’t carry Mr. Owl’s ingredients. Luckily, Melena’s willing to help, for a price.

With Melena’s pet Spit-Fire dragon and Toad’s enchanted talking beer mug, they embark on a fantastical journey, traveling the country in search of the potion ingredients. But can they gather all of them in time, what with monsters, pirates, and axe-wielding thieves? And if they do, is there an even greater danger waiting for them at the end?

  1. Sounds like a fun book! I enjoy kids books which also appeal to an adult’s sense of humor. After reading this plus an excerpt and some reviews elsewhere, I think you made a sale. 🙂 Thanks for the shout out too! Happy A to Z.


  2. This is a lovely book review – wish I had a child to read it with, but I’m making a list – grandchildren will be coming along one of these days. Plus I have some other little friends who might like it.


  3. Hi Rosie and Melissa – what a fun book .. Toad would be an impossible character … and would constantly be in the way, yet wanting to be so helpful … Mr Owl could help too … but I guess Melena conquers all with Toad’s help .. I too would love a child to read it to! Cheers Hilary
