The Tale of Two Toodlegnomes


From the imagination of a small child and put together by her grandma!!! This is a long children's action adventure, mini-series...which when I asked the grand how many books she thought we would end up with, she replied "About fifteen!" LOL She is now 6 years old. ; )

A.L. McBee will be doing her first book signing this fall in our home town and she is very excited. We started working on this story when she was just two and a half while on vacation, and her grandma—Robin Renee Ray put it together when she was five years old. To her it is a brand new adventure even though she remembers pretending to fight the Bumble Bee Dragons with our little plastic swords and creating the Purple Murples when she first saw a Dragonfly...LOL

We now have new swords and have started our new adventure in finding the home of the dreaded Queen of the Bumble Bee Dragons which she named after seeing a huge Bumble Bee.

In this 38 page tale there are creatures of all kinds, from horrid spiders that tower over the tiny Toodlegnomes who live in the magical forest, to the slimy Gordilines that she named after playing with a fat worm. In book two she told me we would have to have a Mole that would dig a tunnel for the two Toodlegnomes because the Queen Bumble Bee Dragon lived in a honey-comb castle and they had to find a way in from under so they wouldn't be seen and captured. I love how she thinks!

Hellfire Publishing is proud and extremely honored that Robin Renee Ray calls Hellfire Publishing her “home” and now her granddaughter is  their first children's book author as well as their youngest!

A.L. McBee is the granddaughter of author, Robin Renee Ray. In the summer of 2010, the two began fighting dragons while camping on vacation and the Toodlegnomes were born. A.L., just starting to read and not yet able to write well enough, told her story to grandma who brought her characters to life on paper. A.L. is a 6 year old, kindergarten graduate, who hopes to one day write books all on her own, as well as become a nurse when she grows up. She enjoys reading, writing, drawing, and playing with her little sister and their friends.


Excerpt for The Tale of Two Toodlegnomes

The Toodlegnomes lived in peace without worry of the outside world and the many dangers that came with it for many years. That is until the dreaded Bumble Bee Dragons were ordered by their evil Queen to sneak in and steal the Crystals that gave life to the Toodlegnome village. All felt their way of life was lost…all but the bravest of the small forest dwellers. Maggie Galestone and her best friend Maxine Thornbread were ordered to leave the village, because all feared their overly brave ways would cause all to pay with a war they felt could not be won. The two little Toodlegnomes begin an adventure that takes them into uncharted territory filled with dangers of forbidden forest, they come upon creatures, which are happy to help them in their quest and some who would like to cause them harm. Few give much hope that either will ever be seen again...

The Tale of Two Toodlegnomes is an adventure story of two young Toodlegnomes on a mission to save their village from the evil Bumble Bee Dragons, from the imagination of a 6 year old, transcribed by her grandmother. I may be a bit biased, as the 6 year old is mine (^^) but I love this story! Full of adventure and interesting characters, a fun little novel for fantasy lovers of any age. Check it out and see what you think :)

This is a delightful children's book that is fast paced with lively characters a child can connect to. Children and fantasy go hand and hand and this is a charming book to share with a child.
