OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Aug. 2, 2017 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) –- K.J. Blocker has created an alternative universe, like no other can, in his newly-released book, “Treasure of the Magical Mine Moppets” (ISBN: 978-0999150740). Published by Mindstir Media, the book’s motive is to foster kindness and understanding.
“Enter a magical world where corn grows as high as the clouds and salt can be worth more than gold,” Blocker says.
While this fantasy drama is written for young adult audiences, it’s really a story that everyone can enjoy and take something away.
The story centers around three generations – Jimmy Powers, a nine-year-old boy, who has unsuccessfully devoted his life trying to be noticed by his father, Tom, and Tom’s father, Pappy, who has suddenly appeared after being absent for most of Tom’s life. How will they all learn to connect?
Well, the author has created a world where a mile beneath the earth live wondrous, iridescent little creatures, happily working and playing. However, the world above is not so magical. Here lurks the evil, Mr. Withers, a greedy banker, who wants to destroy all Tom has worked for. And, if they don’t find a way to defeat him, Tom’s family will lose everything. Together, they will learn that family and love are the only things that can destroy evil.
In the U.S. Review of Books, an organization that connects authors with professional book reviewers, one reviewer stated, “There’s a very Disney-like feel to this opening chapter that immediately drops a hierarchy of relatable characters into an environment that is beyond ordinary.”
Readers are sure to discover magic and adventure in moppet land. The book is available from major retailers such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
