Summary: An awful mistake begins a summer-long crazy, great, and tragic adventure to search for clues to solve a mystery, and pure optimism in spirit and song maintains hope for forgiveness and success.
Chisel’s whole summer will turn out to be one perilous adventure after another, in places like the jungles of Volcano Island, The Haunted Woods, Look Around Mountain, and The Cave of the Tooth.
Chisel will have to develop plans of escape including disguises #1, 2, and 3, use his flying skateboard hot-air-trash-bag-balloon-plane, and create the worst stink bomb recipe in the world to subdue his pursuers. He must overcome his own fear, and despair, always looking on the bright side of life by singing his songs of optimism.

Then envision Chisel saying, “Hope is free, and hope is mine, today I grab it and will not let go! And if anyone has lost it, come see me. I have plenty you can borrow.”

The animals of Chisel’s world learn that a good heart prevails though life’s journey may be hazardous. This is a fun, upbeat book that children of all ages will e

The Chisel Hedgehog book series reminds me of when I once rose in a plane above rain and lightning to a beautiful blue sky atop a sea of cotton balls. I knew then that wherever we are, in whatever tough circumstances, life is better "somewhere" else -- and that somewhere is often a state of mind. That's when I moved from music producing to writing fun, adventurous books for children with a positive theme, and integrating music into them. I find my creativity while experiencing the best things in life -- which are free: the sound of the ocean, the view at the top of a mountain, the wind on my face. It's been fun writing about it. Life is good.
