Timothy Tolliver and the Bully Basher

by Aaron Shepard

**#1 KINDLE (US) BESTSELLER IN CHILDREN’S CHAPTER BOOKS (SEPT. 2013)** Timothy Tolliver and his friend Arnie Rosenberg have a problem — a gang of older bullies called the Stinks. But besides being a fourth-grader, Timothy is also a world-class inventor. He and Arnie get the bright idea of defending themselves with Timothy’s science-project robot.  When their first try fails, Timothy finds a way to update the mystical formulas that gave life to the Jewish clay monster, the Golem. The robot comes alive, and it looks like their worries are over — till the robot stops following orders and takes matters into its own hands.  Can Timothy bring his creation back under control? Find out, as the Golem legend replays in a modern American elementary school. ///////////////////////////////////////////////// Aaron Shepard is the award-winning author of “The Baker’s Dozen,” “The Sea King’s Daughter,” “The Monkey King,” and many more children’s books.

The Golem.” “The Golem?” said Timothy. “What’s that?” “It’s from an old legend we heard in Hebrew school. A few hundred years ago, a lot of Jews in Europe were getting killed by mobs, all because of some stupid rumors started by their enemies. This one rabbi wanted to protect the Jews of his city, so he made a man of clay and brought it to life. It was so strong, nothing could stand against it. They called it the Golem.” “Kind of like Frankenstein?” said Timothy. “Yeah, but the Golem came first, and that was probably where the idea for Frankenstein came from.” Arnie grinned. “Wouldn’t it be cool if this robot could protect us from the Stinks, like the Golem protected the Jews?” Timothy grinned too. Then they both stopped grinning and looked at each other. “You don’t think . . . .” started Arnie. “I don’t know,” said Timothy. “I don’t see why not.”

A young pirate-in-training shadows his dad as his father chases down the man who stole his cargo. Confronted with cannons, the young pirate fears their tiny fifteen-man crew will die quickly, but his father shows him a magic more powerful than all the cannon fire in the world. The only problem? It’s not iron and cotton the other pirate stole.

It’s precious human life.

PRAISE for Lancelot Schaubert ::

“Schaubert’s words have an immediacy, a potency, an intimacy that grab the reader by the collar and say â??Listen, this is important!’ Probing the bones and gristle of humanity, his subjects challenge, but also offer insights into redemption if only we will stop and pay attention.”
â?? Erika Robuck, National Bestselling Author of Hemingway’s Girl

“Loved this story because Lance wrote about people who don’t get written about enough and he did it with humor, compassion, and heart.”

â?? Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove, author of Common Prayer and The Awakening of Hope

“Lancelot was the kind of student every writing teacher hopes to have in her class: attentive, thoughtful, a bit quirky, and innovative. Since his time in my classroom, he has continued to impress me. He â??sees,’ and his essays, poetry, and fiction are full of details that enable his audience to see. Bravo, Lance.”
â?? Jackina Stark, author of Things Worth Remembering and Tender Grace

“[He writes] characters with distinctive personalities, multi-layered, and unpredictable. [They have] natural voices, succinct and unique to each character.” â?¨â?? The Missouri Scriptwriting Fellowship

    Fifteen-year-old Amba Scales lives with her younger sisters in the Common, a town that is filled with the poor and destitute of Speroa. Orphaned when their father was killed while trying to get their dying mother medical help, Amba and her sisters eke out a living with the help of their Aunt and Uncle, while President Quintus Howlor continues to inflict more misery on the Commoners, tightening his iron grip even more.
