Jewels and her brothers, Manny and Brooks lived in a small village of the darkest of shades, and a colorless world surrounds them. Her brothers were very different from the villagers there and so was Jewels. She wanted to fit in with the villagers while her brothers could care less to fit in with the boring, bland people there.
Manny and Brooks discovered another village far beyond the forest, one that was magical and of many colors beyond their wildest dreams, the likes of which were only found only within the forbidden books known as the Corridor of Hues, which were destroyed in their village.
Jewels and her brothers are cast out from their village and take a leap of hope to join the colorful world that the brothers discovered. Many strange surprises await them along the way. Is the grass truly greener on the other side? One can only hope so…
I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Don’t Forget to Chew Your Food! is a novella that is a fantasy about Jewels and her two brothers. They live in a boring and colorless village but they aren’t like the other villagers. They want adventure and excitement. The villagers eventually throw them out, so they search for another village the boys had seen on one of their explorations.
The other village is colorful and has a lot of strange creatures around it, but there are no people! When they meet the owner of the village, they still want to stay. But does he want them to stay?
Don’t Forget to Chew Your Food! would probably appeal to middle-grade readers. The descriptions are what I like: I can picture the creatures and the forest in my head but the author keeps it concise. It is a dark fantasy, which I usually don’t mind, but I prefer more hopeful books for younger readers.
