About The Book

Do you want to know a secret?

Beneath the very ground on which you walk and beyond the stars above your head, are more worlds than you could ever dream of. There are monsters. Be afraid. Magic, wielded by witches and sorcerers. Epic adventures in worlds far across the ocean. And fearsome weapons which threaten to destroy everything.

Jimmy Crikey is a brave soul who faces some pretty scary challenges. Solving mysteries and averting mayhem, his incredible courage allows him to free up his abilities to shine and rise above every challenge in his path, on his way to discovering why he looks so very strange.

With a bright red mop of unruly hair, big blue eyes, a small snub nose, pointed ears and enormous feet, poor Jimmy is ridiculed by the neighbourhood children and runs away in search of a world where he fits in. Following a midnight flight through the forest, he stumbles into a lost, underground world called Roombelow and magic, adventure, danger and excitement await.

From the little lady who lives at the bottom of a well, a starship that wants to take him home, trolls, little people, traders and diamonite stealers to water sprites, witches, helpful dolphins, and interplanetary warfare, Jimmy learns the biggest lessons of his life.

About the Author

Wallace Briggs (1943 – present). My formative years were experienced in and around Durham City. Married in 1964, to my childhood sweetheart, Pat and I spent 40 happy years in the North East before employment almost took us off to emigrate to South Africa. But plans were changed in the final weeks, and instead the company moved us to East Sussex.After more than twenty years in Sussex, then Hampshire, employment was again responsible for the move to beautiful rural Lancashire.Jimmy Crikey was born one rainy day, many years ago, during a family holiday in Great Yarmouth, to entertain my son and his new found friends for an hour or so. The story expanded over the following rainy afternoons in the cramped confines of a beach tent, and more and more adventures were required to keep the children entertained.My latest story is a children’s fantasy fiction based on this central character of somewhat (very) unusual appearance and relate the adventures that befall Jimmy Crikey when he runs away to escape incessant bullying. Jimmy’s search for a better life leads to several adventures in a subterranean world of magic and mayhem and monsters.“The Amazing Adventures of Jimmy Crikey” is targeted at a young audience and was written in 20 minute bedtime-reading-slots. It was recently read, cover to cover, in one day by an eleven year old who thoroughly enjoyed the escapism. It is intended to be an easily understood, adventurous romp in fantasy land, demonstrating that even the underdog can achieve greatness.Another story in the fantasy genre, “Romney Hole”, is targeted at early to mid-teens readers, and revolves around the holiday exploits of two teenage, Yorkshire Dale youngsters, brother, Zach, and tomboy sister, Rachel. Their leisure activity of potholing on the moorlands, above their farm, leads to the discovery of an alien energy life form. Taras transfers his powers to the two young people and in so doing gives up his existence.A second Jimmy Crikey adventure is in the early stages of writing.Further information available at www.wallaceebriggs.comRegards from Wallace E.
