The Greatest Blessings

By Mark Isaacs

Children's, Picture books & comics, Magical realism, Action & adventure | Hardback, eBook


Discover the illustrated children’s chapter book that the prestigious Midwest Book Review calls “unforgettable,” the popular Reading Frenzy Book Review says “should be next on your child’s reading list,” and prompts kids everywhere to ask one another ... Fame, Fortune or Power: Which would YOU choose if you could have only one? Lords and brothers Fame, Fortune and Power decide how well all people will fare in life in the namesake realms of human desire they control. When they deem a woeful babe abandoned in a barn unworthy of any of their favours, the child grows up the lackey of a cruel farmer and his tormenting spoiled children. When he is old enough Boy, for that is the name used for him, runs away with the only friends he has ever known—the equally abused and unnamed Sheep, Cow and Horse—to seek a better life. Years later, a quarrel among Fame, Fortune and Power over whose blessing is the greatest sends them, and their court jester Nobody, on a quest to find an unsullied party to settle their dispute. Boy seems the perfect candidate, but his unconventional views on what is valuable in life incite the lords and bring him to the brink of doom. Will he live? What happens to the lords? And is Boy right or does one of the lords’ blessings outshine the others? The future of mankind depends on the answer.

Hurrah! Huzzah! And Hip Hip Hooray! After many years in journalism, PR and education, I finally found my passion in short-story writing. I've had a number of shorts published in literary magazines and recently Lampglow Books published one of my faves, The Greatest Blessings, as a children's chapter book, replete with 22 sumptuous illustrations. That's a victory in itself. But what would be better is if the tale of the fabulous Lords Fame, Fortune and Power and the forsaken runaway named Boy they command to decide which one of their namesake favours is the greatest blessing sells a few copies!
