Christopher Sproyngeez and Deedlekin Doll
by Ron Charach

Christopher Sproyngeez and Deedlekin Doll are dying to visit the World's Biggest Mall. When their parents go off on a shopping spree, Chris and Deedle grow tired of waiting, and use an array of secret powers to fly through the mall's atrium, with Deedlekin changing identities as the mood suits her. The family learns life lessons about the values of being patient, staying calm in emergencies, and ultimately, about the lure of materialism.

The Coronavirus gone, their parents' shopping spree was on.

But kids won't wait around for hours when they have magical powers!

Praise for Ron Charach's picture book, Lemily by the Sea:

"A lonely, beach-dwelling child gets a friend in this pleasing fantasy with well-wrought verse and attractive images."

-- Kirkus Reviews

Once again, Ron teams up with gifted illustrator, Laura Catrinella.

RON CHARACH is the author of Lemily by the Sea, a picture book that celebrates the need for human company and friendship. The author of a dozen books for adults. Ron believes in the healing power of rhythm and rhyme, of reading poems aloud and committing them to memory. For more than forty years, he has helped young people and their families communicate with one another. In this book, the lifting of COVID restrictions finds two parents so eager to go on a shopping spree that they put their kids on hold. The children's soaring zeal for adventure, enabled by a few magical powers, winds up teaching each member of the family a valuable life lesson.
