Praise For The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton:

"INCREDIBLE! WOW! AMAZING! I'd go on but I think you'd get tired of it but I also don't want you to think that I'm being overly promotional or something. I truly fell in love with The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton.
This book had me smiling and laughing. What makes it so unique? Well, there are great characters and such, but it all comes down to the words. Yes, words! The names of the characters are based on what they do and their personalities.  My mind was flying off in ways it could help kids learn new words and enjoy doing so
."-Rebecca Graf, A Book Lover's Library 

"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!!"
Jayda, Two Children and a Migraine

"This is a truly lovely story.  If Dr. Seuss had written a novel it would be just like this-whimsical, charming, colorful as an artist's palette, with moral values wrapped in parables like peaches in whipped cream, with epic struggles of good against evil and full of the wonder and wisdom only ever comprehended by the heart of a child.  This story will speak to every child heart aged 8 to 88."-Joy Renee Davis, Joy Story

"The characters are colorful and quirky, the writing style easy and fun. And, word geek that I am, I absolutely loved that the story is also a bit of a dictionary: for "big" or "new" words, there are footnoted definitions.  Also, most characters have surnames that reflect their personalities. The vocabulary is amazing, and you learn without consciously learning (the best kind). I was sucked into the story, trying to work out the tangles on my own - piecing together clues, and trying to figure out the bad guys versus the good guys before all was revealed. There's adventure, suspense, a little romance, and a dash of space-y goodness; I look forward to future adventures of Tilda."Rebecca, A Word's Worth

"Finally a character in a book that loves words as much as me.  I love Tilda and her zany way of talking. So exciting to have a book so entertaining and enlightening.  I highly recommend this book.  Read it to yourself, read it out loud, read it to your kids, watch your vocabulary grow.  And the best part is no one will know you had so much fun with words."-Mindy, Books, Books & More Books

I loved the Tilda book for older children and my son, age 14, thought it was fun also.  I love that Tilda can reach children of all ages.  I cannot wait to get a Tilda book for my 6 year old, first grade niece.  Sharing a love of words in a fun way is the best gift of all.

I cannot wait to see what Tilda does next.  I give this book 5 out of 5 clouds.
