A thrillingly exciting, action-packed novel about a boy destined to be a hero of the French Revolution.
It would be difficult to imagine a place more pathetic than the trailer park of Aimlow, a small town cultural wasteland whose inhabitants are bent on nothing more than hunting, drinking and driving four-wheelers - oftentimes, simultaneously. They are uneducated, modern day peasants who spend their time glued to television sets, gulping wine straight from the box, feasting on pork rinds and breeding simply for something to do during commercial breaks. The one bright spot in their lives is the hope that Aimlow may one day play host to the next Y'alMart Supercenter. But when an old peddler arrives with an offer none of them can resist, this good-sized trailer park begins to rethink its priorities. Even the town's mayor, Def Leppard fanatic Bob Pugel, finds himself with the ethical predicament: Just what would you trade for riches beyond your dreams? Your dignity? Your self-respect? All four of your black Camaros? With a cast of animated characters and a quick-moving plot, "Necklace for the Neckless" focuses on a variety of themes in a silly, offhanded manner. These themes include greed, love, the battle of good versus evil, and the appropriateness of wearing pajamas to the grocery store. From Wolley Ledbetter, the lovably non-self-destructive town drunk, to Diva Sue Klondike, the beautician with a penchant for fistfights, "Necklace for the Neckless" will have readers laughing and cringing throughout.
Travel back in time to 1990. Travel through the universe to another planet, a planet where bunnies can be evil and wolves can be super heroes. A planet where magic exists and evil abounds, but friendship and love are still the most important things. Michael Stone is twenty-five years old and lives in Paulden, Arizona with his family and two schnauzers. He works at Yavapai Exceptional Industries in Prescott, Arizona. Michael has always loved to tell stories, even as a young boy he would make up imitative tales. Michael lives with autism, this affects his speech to a small degree, but it affects his ability to write to a greater degree. Because Michael cannot physically write his stories he simply dictates them to a willing typist (usually his mom or Anita). Michael has proven that a disability does not have to stop a person from realizing their dreams, so dream on and never stop.
