Jonny Plumb struggled up the last few concrete steps to the large oak door and dropped his old battered, heavy leather case with a thud. He turned and lifted his arm in a sad.
Zany, magical and totally original, Jonny Plumb and The Golden Globe conjures up the spirit of age old classics into the most beguiling of children’s tales. A full on childhood adventure from the very first page, author Kim Wheeler reminds us of the pure joy to be found when imagination is given free reign. With an engaging narrative, the suspension of disbelief may well be a requisite, but his young protagonist Jonny Plumb always feels real as he attempts to unravel the magical mystery in which he finds himself. A wonderfully drawn little character who Wheeler ably captures in cleverly nuanced dialogue and sublime turn of phrase. A read that combines vibrant illustrations with Wheeler’s whimsical rhymes, it’s one of those tales that will linger in the enquiring minds of young readers as they quickly take the ever endearing Jonny to their hearts.
The start of a magical series that deserves wide readership, Kim Wheeler has set his bar enviably high with the promise of good things to come. With an unreserved high recommendation, Jonny Plumb & The Golden Globe is certainly deserving of a place on your child’s bookshelf.

Every author dreams that one day their books will go viral. It is the ultimate accolade of success. Having a book go viral tops getting published or even making the ever growing number of best seller lists. It is the elusive dream for the majority of authors, yet with the right foundation and approach to marketing the dream is more achievable than it ever has been. As authors we all know the amazing sense of achievement that comes with publishing our first book and for a while we find ourselves basking in the ‘twilight zone’ of being a published author. Then comes that rude awakening when we find our book sales are nowhere near our expectations. Fortunately there is much we can do to meet our dreams, but above all else we have to be visible and today that means a powerful social media presence combined with publishing knowledge that is always ahead of the curve. It simply isn’t enough to have a great book if your potential readers have never heard of it. At BookViral we focus our energy on discovering authors and illustrators because this is where we excel and we are passionate about the books that shape the minds of readers across the world. Our spotlight reviews are attracting thousands of new readers everyday and if you have written or illustrated a book that deserves the best in promotion we want to hear from you.
