Casper and Jasper and the Terrible Tyrant by Tilia Klebenov Jacobs with illustrations by Matt Tames is Linden Tree Press is a story with villians and the heroes who battle them. There are trolls, twins and a princess included. It is written for teens and young adults in the category of science fiction and fantasy as well as action and adventure. I gave it four stars.
It is set in the Lands of Yonder which had been a happy village before Count Wilhelm Scream established himself as a dictator. It was now filled with grumbling, unhappy people who did not like the changes.
Kate and Adelet were teachers who resented having to teach Count Wilhelms Scream’s version of history. They were having a meeting to fight for truth and using the twin’s six-month birthday as a cover for it. They hired one of their students to babysit.
“Her name was Prissy, and she was a lump of a girl, all long, dark hair and sullen eyes, who lived in a local orphanage called Kinderdump.” The twins were identical so had bracelets marked with a C, and the other with a J.
I received a complimentary Kindle copy from NetGalley and Linden Tree Press. That did not change my opinion for this review.
