Klutzy Kantor- J.Aday Kennedy
Klutzy Kantor is a clumsy Pegasus who wishes he wasn’t such a klutz. His friend Agra tell him to go and challenge the leprechaun to a battle of the wits, the winner being granted a wish. Kantor trains with some friends of the forest, honing his riddle solving skills, all the while tripping and running into things.
Kantor challenges the undefeated leprechaun to a dual of riddles, sure his determination and riddle practice will help him win the challenge and get his wish. Does he get his wish of no longer being a klutz?
J.Aday Kennedy has made a cute and fun story about a Pegasus named Kantor. She goes above and beyond just writing the book by providing a teacher guide to go along with the book geared for ages 6-10, though I think it would be geared more for 4-8.
She has even written a song for Kantor called “Go Me’ which you can download on Amazon.
Jack Foster illustrates Kantor with bold, colorful pages, rich in personality.
Aday on her website calls herself ‘The Differently-Abled Writer & Speaker” She is a ventilator dependent quadriplegic, who has written several darling children’s books. It was a joy to read this book to my children and I have more to come on my blog when we look at her latest book!
