Crumb: The Secret of the Riddle
By

Rating
A rollicking good story and an epic allegory about the "little man" caught in the greedy machinery of today's world, hungry to make a difference. This far-flung fantasy adventure tale for the Child Within Us All unites a resourceful eight-year-old girl Zoe with mischievous Crumb (an orphan breadball raised by wise Breadbox and taught to read), Nefertiti the cat, Whisk the Dog Whiskerer, and a brilliant Bee in a quest to solve a Riddle that might help to save our endangered pollinators! Two dysfunctional families bond and a grotesque villain is revealed as the Riddle begins to make sense bit by bit, driven by a purpose greater than any of these characters could guess at the start. Fusing mystery, childhood wonder, passionate concern for our environment and sheer poetry, CRUMB The Secret of The Riddle promises to keep you turning pages.

About the Author

As a small child Carol Worthey would sit on the edge of her bed riveted by the imaginative bedtime stories her Father created about the adventures and mishaps of a magical Crumb. Three generations in her family begged for these stories, but her father had died at forty-eight, never writing them down. Meanwhile, Carol concentrated on composing heartfelt classical music heard in many countries around the world and exhibiting paintings in Florence and Beverly Hills while raising a family. She loved writing, but kept it on the back burner --- a teacher had falsely accused her of plagiarizing a story when Carol was eight, calling her parents and saying, "No child of her age could have written that." Finally, Carol realized a life-long goal and began setting down whatever bedtime stories she could recall. To her absolute amazement, the characters began to dictate to Carol what they wanted to say, to think, to DO! The stories took off in a tempest of wild imagination with a stirring ecological message that concerns all of living things today! Carol continues to compose and paint but now is conceiving two more sequels based on Crumb & Company's involvement with endangered animals.
