The first of six books all about the amazing, zany and original adventures of one Jonny Plumb
Jonny Plumb and the Golden Globe
Jonny Plumb and the Golden Globe is the incredibly exciting story of a young orphan boy and his remarkable special powers, who has been fostered by the very wealthy and extremely beautiful Lady Kathleen Hunter.
Jonny’s adventures begin when he discovers the mysterious Golden Globe at the bottom of his bath. The Golden Globe with its many secrets takes Jonny on all types of amazing-jaw dropping adventures, above ground and high into the furthest regions of space and deep under water, where he befriends his sea- life friends, including three baby octopuses Stench, Harpoon and Carcuss and five young dolphins, Oink, Jube, Faraway, Blue Sky One Eye and not forgetting, Sloppy Botty and many more.
Join Jonny Plumb and his new friends as they travel across the universe in the Silver Flying Arrow Space Ship, which can travel at twice, yes, twice the speed of light. Read in amazement as Jonny Plumb’s adventures take him across the world in order to save Lady Kathleen’s husband Sir Ranulf Hunter and his best friend Sir Harry Pinner, who have been taken hostage by the Mad Mullah Mud Monkeys of Drak Gob. Now if that is not exciting enough, be even more flabbergasted at Jonny’s ongoing battle to save the Golden Globe, from the ever present, wickedly savage and cunningly cruel Rabbcat, who can shape shift into the world’s most evil and terrifying creature known as The Gnud Repeek, a monster who has been trying to steal what he wrongly believes is rightfully his, for centuries, yes, the Golden Globe and all its hidden secrets.
So Join Jonny Plumb and all his friends in their adventures, swimming, singing, parping and splashing below the water in Jonny Plumbs bath and then travel faster than light across the universe and deep into space in the Silver Flying Arrow Space Ship where Jonny answers an SOS from Pashoo, twenty eight million light years from Earth to the Sombrero Galaxy. Join in the journey with Jonnys two faithful companions, the fearsome Legend and Legion, the two largest Rottweiler dogs in the world
This book would appeal to the younger reader who enjoys fantasy and adventure. It was written by Kim Wheeler who was brought up in a children's home until the age of 6. Jonny Plumb and the Golden Globe tells the tale of a little boy who goes to live in a big house and is taken care of by Lady Kathleen and her nannies. It is an age of innocence set in the 1950's when children played for hours to their hearts content. Jonny strikes me as being quite a lonely little boy who loves the kindness he is shown from day one by his new family All sorts of fantasy characters appear, from the pod of dolphins, Sloppy Botty and his family and also amongst others, the octopus that joins him while he is bathing.( he sits on Jonny's head ) so plenty of humorous moments to be had. If you are a fan of sea life and also sci fi, you will love this book. Lose yourself in Jonny's amazing world of weird and wonderful characters. As the adventures unfold, Jonny takes you on a journey to another galaxy that will bewitch you, while also enjoying the nurturing care of Nanny Noo and Nanny Carole. The evil Gnud Rapeek tries to wrestle from him what is rightfully his but will Jonny win through? This book is part of a series? trilogy? so you can go on to enjoy Jonny's further adventures at a later date. by faraway Jonny Plumb and the Golden Globe is will have young audiences in its grip even in the opener as a young and confused orphan boy arrives at a very mysterious new home where magic begins to show its face. You can’t but help but fall in love with this character as he is clumsy , always falling and seems that he has just woken up to all the wonders of the world- and a strange one that it is! Jonny finds himself in a fantasy world here as he meets mysterious friends that pop out of nowhere, not to mention even when he is in the bath! I love the names of some of the characters, such as Nanny Noo and Doctor Doughnut. I can just hear all the giggles of children as they will be either reading this story or having it read to them. There is a serious message here for children also about being a special child, such as orphaned and ones that have a ‘gift’. The story is paced very quickly to hold the younger readers attention. A mysterious ‘Golden Globe’ holds many secrets for Johnny and one very big one that has quite a ‘shock value’ for readers. Kim Wheeler is a master at fantasy as it surely makes itself known in this one. The use of rhyme as we know catches the child’s ear and memory. This is surely one story that is a must for every home with a young child from ages five through ten.
