The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton Book Review

About the Book:

Somewhere out in the Sombrero Galaxy, Tilda Pinkerton-mystical maker of mysterious, magnificent, magical hats-is being hunted by the Keeper of Darkness.

Yet Tilda simply does not recall, at all, after taking a tremendous fall.

No one on Ooleeoo, where Tilda crash-landed, knows she is from another planet. Only Star Jumper Randy can tell her-but he's light years away, frantically searching for his missing love, desperate that without her, the entire galaxy soon may be lost.

Even in the middle of cosmic danger, Tilda loves to create hats, for which she has a rare and uncanny knack. All who receive them sparkle, in fact-and spark their innermost talent. With a Tilda hat, people can suddenly do whatever they dream of, causing brilliant ideas to grow madly.
With Gladys the toad, who thinks she's a cat, and Frank the fish, who lives in her hat, Tilda must discover who she is and what her enemy wants from her so badly.

But the Mayor of Moodle has other plans, including a ban on all wearing of hats, everywhere on Ooleeoo. His dark and forbidding actions seem to coincide with something unworldly, threatening all with a nameless dread and slowly blacking out the sky. With Ooleeoo itself turning upside down, how can anyone survive?
In this first in a series of Tilda Pinkerton adventures, Tilda must fight the battle of her life and risk all-even the galaxy and stars-by revealing her most electrifying secret.

Written for children but adults enjoy it too!

My Review of the Book:

How important is a book cover? I personally would have to say it is very important!!  Many of us read books from reviews we have read or word of mouth from family and/or friends.  Then there are books that have such beautiful covers that you may not have heard of them, but the cover pulls you into it!  The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton is a book that has it all.  I have to say the cover of this book is one of the best that I have seen in a long time.  I fell in love with it as soon as I opened my mail and could not wait to read this book!

Once I dived into the book  I have to say it did not disappoint!  The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton is so well written and entertaining from start to finish.  It was one of those books that I hated to put down and definitely want to share. The story line is so well thought out and put together that I was pleased  see that this book is just one of many that will come from Tilda Pinkerton.  I love the fact that Angela Shelton wrote a book that is a suitable for both children and adults.  Young and old will both love this book and rest assured if you are looking for a gift for a birthday or for Christmas coming up this book would be perfect!!  Personally I can not wait until my girls are old enough to read it!

Be sure to check back tomorrow and you may just get the chance to WIN yourself a copy!!!

I received a book for review purposes and views are 100% my own and not influenced in anyway!
