Books Info:

Unlikely Progeny free pdf In the tradition of Edward Lear, Hilaire Belloc, and G. K. Chesterton, Linda Quilt's imaginative fables recount the adventures of six bizarrely gifted child prodigies who wreak havoc on their baffled families. Sweet Melinda, for example, has a toad that hops out of her mouth each time she tells a lie- consequently, she's fiercely committed to telling the truth even in the face of fat aunts who eat too much cream cake or pimpled boys who declare their love to her. In another tale, shy Howab realizes that he can make people disappear simply by saying his own name out loud - which just might doom some hated teachers to a grim fate. And then there's dear Norm - the poor fellow is so utterly normal that nobody can remember him, not even his own parents, who wonder every day at the strange little boy who comes home from school. These fantastic and creative tales, with equally marvelous illustrations by Michael Sowa, will capture the excitement of readers of all ages and have them debating whether these extraordinary children are sly monsters or innocent victims of their astonishing talents.

About Linda Quilt

It is rumored that Linda Quilt was born in a small village near Stratford-upon-Avon, which has since vanished mysteriously from the maps of Great Britain. German poet and editor Hans Magnus Enzensberger was so impressed when he received Quilt's unpublished manuscript in the mail that he found a famous illustrator for her book and shepherded it to publication. Michael Sowa paints pictures and illustrates books- his collection of animal portraits, Arche Sowa, was published by Sanssouci.
