The Techno Festival has come to Hopplescotch Realm. Inventors and magicians from each of the different Realms have all kinds of gadgetry and magic spells on show at the festival - more than you could ever imagine!
But there is mystery afoot!
Who is this Techno Wizard who always cloaks himself, and why does he have such a sinister appearance? Who are the Techno Pirates? Are they trying to ruin the Festival or are they trying to frame the Techno Wizard?
As usual in Hopplescotch Realm, things are not always what they seem. Join the kids on their fun adventure as they meet some weird and wonderful characters and unravel the mysteries.
Whilst Abby and the Hopplescotch Realm was a fun read, Julie Folkers' second novel, Anika and the Techno Pirates, is action-packed from cover to cover. Abby returns to the Hopplescotch Realm to attend the Techno Festival, but this time it is not all fun and games. Trouble is afoot... Who is behind it? Could it be the Techno Pirates? Or is it the mysterious cloaked wizard? Julie Folkers has really outdone herself with this fantastic new novel. I thoroughly recommend this book.

It is always a joy to see someone move steadily through the stages from writing student to published author. Julie Folkers is a big thinker. Why write one book when I can write a series? This must have been the question in her mind. Anika and the Techno Pirates is the result. That's quite a significant achievement.

If you thought Abby was a good read wait till you read this one!
It totally blew me away, couldn't stop reading! Action packed action along with mystical stuff that creates a mystery of it's own.

This was written as the first in her series of stories about the adventures of a group of children and other characters in a different world. Julie's series has grown to 4 books in total now with the 5th being penned, it is extremely popular, read her reviews on her website and enjoy her books
Julie lives with her two daughters and her dogs -Bailey and Arthur.
The series is all written in past tense, Abby was 5th on our best seller list when it was first published in 2003.
I found a version of Abby in my computer that was typed in present tense before the publisher wanted it changed into past tense for publication, I hope you enjoy it! It's not as long or as detailed as the final one but still a rollicky read.
If you liked reading Harry Potter you will love this series and now with the help of digital publishing it is easy to bring the series to a world wide audience.
Most adults love my books too!
Julie has been busy penning an adult series under a non de plume and started Ooky Spooky Publications.
