Bertie O’Brien and the Button Factory by Jessica Strong – Author

I put up a post yesterday about the sudden passing of author Jessica Strong who I know through the  Clean Indie Reads Facebook group.

In that post I outlined that the Clean Indie Reads group is pushing an effort to get our membership that are interested to do a little something in memory of her. On December 26th, as a little remembrance / coordinated effort to do something to honor her passing, we are going to buy her books all on that day.

As part of my own comments in that thread I said “I’d like to think we could get her to #1 with a coordinated effort such as this on Saturday 12/26…” “If I lived nearby and brought flowers or something to the family to say goodbye, I would spend so much more (and it would be equally worth it).”

So that is what I am going to do. I am going to log in at 9AM EST, “drop” $16.00, and get all her books.

Between now and then, I am going to showcase her books on my blog and on my author page over at Facebook.

Today I am showcasing Bertie O’Brien and the Button Factory: How Bertie O’Brien built a button factory slaying monsters” 


I can’t give you a review of it; as I mentioned, the CIR group is going to do all our shopping on Saturday and then I will need to put it into my TBR bundle, but in the meantime I can share the summary with you and the existing reviews:

SYNOPSIS: I always knew there was a family secret. I just didn’t know how big that secret was until I went to visit my great Aunt Maggie. There in her attic she told me what everyone had tried to keep hidden all these years. My great, great Uncle Bertie was a monster slayer, but you won’t believe how he slew them. I’m still not sure I believe it myself.

Print Length is 39 pages, it was released on July 12, 2014 through Amazon Digital Services, Inc. (ASIN: B00LRWITEE).

FOUR STAR REVIEW – Unusual and interesting tale!June 6, 2015 By Angela Castillo (follow the link to the review).

Another FOUR STAR REVIEW was written by  GreenCedar on September 17, 2015

If you are looking for a short read-aloud, story to share with your young ones, this book seems like a good fit from the reviews.
I can let you know once I get it on the 26th and read it with mine.
