Keepsake that Educates!

Book Spotlight/Giveaway: World of Ink Tour for Author Alyce Joy Rininger. Ends Sept 16th

About the Author: Alyce Joy was blessed with four children for whom she composed bedtime verses every night. That inspired her to publish a children’s book of prayers, entitled, “Priceless Gems.” When her children were grown, she began to write stories for her grandchildren.

Always fascinated with arts and crafts, she taught herself the art of pyrography. This fired her imagination, and she started burning life-sized pictures of wildlife onto all the doors of her home. Her wood burnings are scattered through the U.S. and Canada.

After deciding to put away her burning tools and torches, she enrolled in, and graduated from the Institute of Children’s Literature.
Alyce Joy hopes every child who reads her stories will look forward to each new adventure, as her favorite fairy becomes entangled into many, outrageous happenstances.

About the Book: Sprout is a fairy from Spritesville, Ohio. Her given name is Sprunetta Brunetta. She doesn’t like it, because she thinks it sounds too much like somebody’s wicked sister. Since she is only four inches tall, all her friends call her Sprout. This little fairy is in the service of her queen, the beloved Splaminda Herminda, who rules Spritesville.

The queen sends Sprout to different places to do whatever job needs done. Sprout is not a perfect fairy. She has a wild shoe fetish, and is always getting into some kind of trouble. Queen Splaminda realizes Sprout’s problems, but feels the fairy will grow out of her awkwardness, as she matures. Somehow, Sprout always manages to save the good and meek from the scary and sometimes bad…but… occasionally, she needs a little help.

To say the least, it was an explosive meeting between Taylor and Sprout. Taylor’s dollhouse blows up and her wary investigation finds Sprout among its wreckage. The little girl obviously thinks Sprout is a bad, fibbin’ fairy and the fun is about to begin.

  1. That’s so great that the author got into wood burning. I’m an art minor and am always intrigued by other artist’s work. This book sounds lovely too. I love it when characters in kids books have funny names. Children always get a kick out of that. Great cover too ! My little girl just recently started to like fairies and I’m sure we’d love reading this together.

  4. Sprout sounds a lot like my granddaughter, bwteen her shoe fetish and knack for getting into trouble. I look forward to sharing Alyce Joy’s sense of fantasy with her.

  6. First off, I had to look up pyrography. What an interesting hobby. I am happy that you turned to writing though. I have a new granddaughter and my daughter and son-in-law are already reading to her. As a retired teacher I know that you can’t start too early. I would love to have Ka-Boom to add to Nellie’s library. Thanks,

  7. I just love this story. My granddaughters would also love it but I think my one grandson would as well because she’s so small. 🙂 Thanks for the book giveaway. It was an interesting post.

  9. I’m curious to find out how Taylor’s dollhouse blew up. Spritesville, Ohio sounds like a fun place to visit.
