All is not right in the land of Mother Goose. People and things keep falling down and it is not merely coincidental. There is trouble afoot. It’s up to King Jack and his sister Princess Jill to get to the bottom of the mystery.

Bar-el’s story is a riveting and often hilarious romp through an imaginative landscape that will keep readers guessing about the final outcome.”
