"Two unlikely heroes set on realising their dream confront fearsome villains and potent magic in this riot of colourful comic capers"
December 2023 Debut of the Month
Presenting a full-colour feast of narrative fiction, graphic novel style goodness, and adventure-stuffed comic capers, F. Artington’s Sherbert and the Partly Digested Amulet of Power sees two unlikely heroes, Hatechi and Didi, give their best shot to gaining admission to the high-status All-Artistry Temple school.
When the determined duo enlist the help of the ostensibly innocuous Sherbert, all manner of mayhem — and danger — is unleashed!
As a brilliantly inventive bonus, the book is peppered with “zoom” arrows that invite readers to, well, zoom forward through the pages — “follow the arrows to jump around the story and find out secrets.” This rule-breaking, playing-with-form feature injects extra fun to the reading experience.
In short, Sherbert and the Partly Digested Amulet of Power is a zany blast of colour, crazy creatures, lively dialogue, evil villains, and all-out wacky adventure that’ll entertain even the most reluctant of readers, especially those with wild imaginations.
