Willakaville: Amazing Adventures of Astronomical Awesomeness

Mathew Heinecke
Free sample

 Willakaville is full of zany, crazy, and wacky science fiction adventures that occur in an otherwise small town. In each story, young children find themselves in bizarre predicaments with supernatural situations. There are fourteen stories in all that range from monsters to magic to time travel.  The book also includes two unique poems that are fun and delightful.

An eclectic range of themes abound in the book. Among those are: a detective mystery, a historical adventure, a suspicious janitor, a strange virus, space travel, a magical pencil, an ominous visitor, a battle with a monster, time travel, mass hysteria, an unexpected hero and some peculiar mayonnaise. For most of the tales, young children are at the center and must work together to find interesting solutions to the eminent problems they face.

The characters are easy to identify with as they resemble personalities you would find in any mixture of citizens. Each has his or her own individual style, personality and flaws. Willakaville brings a human touch encompassing a broad range of emotional conflict and self-awareness.

Willakaville is almost one hundred fifty pages in length and the chapters range from five to twenty five pages. Each chapter begins with a custom illustration of distinctive artwork created by the author. The writing style is simple enough for younger children to understand, yet interesting enough for those who are older. The stories are generally geared for those aged 8-12. It makes a great bedtime read for the little ones. However, it will be enjoyed at any age.

The stories are fast-paced and creative with intermittent silliness sprinkled along the way. Each account aims to teach a life lesson, whether it be on manners, self-esteem, censorship, prejudice or ownership. Some of the tales tackle issues of the future, such as artificial intelligence, or epidemics. Willakaville will stir one’s thoughts and curiosity as it meanders through social and personal issues

Willakaville is a fun ride that evokes the imagination and tickles the funny bone. If you are someone that is into action, adventure, comedy and creativity, this is the book for you or someone you love.
