Publisher's Summary

This tale is about a boy named Yipson Minor who ends up on the island of Evolone Hills with his father, mother, and sister. He doesn't originate from there but was given a push by a divine king for a divine purpose. 

As a child, Yipson was under the oppression of a wicked kingdom. But once on the island, he uncovers a secret dictionary from an odd professor that leads him on a chain of events of discovery. Is it Yipson’s wild imagination, or have some things unreal become real? 

In the meantime, his sister, Caycee, makes her own discovery of a secret cave and a golden dragon named Frolick. But little do they realize that her life is in danger, and nothing but a miracle can save her.

In a genre of its own

This book was not like any other I've ever read. It is a fascinating blend of whimsy, gentle humor, and occasional adventure that feels almost incidental to the book's true purpose.

Its narrator describes other characters' personalities and actions with the same straightforward simplicity as he uses to describe strange creatures and odd customs. As a listener I really didn't know what to expect next from this story. It is truly unique and extremely creative.

The author is obviously Christian, and the book comes across as a morality tale, demonstrating how a faith-filled life view allows the book's narrator to pass through and overcome a variety of difficult circumstances.

Benjamin Fife delivers a performance that complements the author's unique storytelling voice. His ability to affect an Irish accent with consistency is great, and the songs were a nice touch. A very enjoyable listen!

Whimsical little story to listen to with your kids

This story is told from the perspective of an older Irishman reflecting on the days of his youth on an obscure island. There are continual interjections of present tense & bizarre little side stories. Definitely a Christian perspective. I've never really studied Irish folklore, but the way this is written & the way Yipson describes things, it makes you think that most of the strange creatures described must be familiar to Irish kids growing up. The story is a little wandering, but still enjoyable.

Holly gave me a chance in narrating this book & I had fun doing it. I had someone tell me listening to it felt like listening to their old Irish uncle, so I think I must have done pretty well for my first fiction narration.
