After pulling one too many pranks, young prince Loogar's father elicits the help of the wizard to put a stop to the boy's unwelcome shenanigans. But when prince Loogar (or Loogie as his nanny calls him) tries to play a joke on the wizard, the wizard decides to put the arrogant young prince in his place once and for all. Loogie is turned into a Genie only to be discovered hundreds of years later by a young boy, named Charlie, who shares Loogar's passion for playing pranks. When Loogie becomes lodged in Charlie's nose, the two boys must work together to help break the wizard's spell and set Loogar free. Loogie the Booger Genie, Prince of Prank is the first book in a series which is likely to be a big hit with young readers. Author N.E. Castle has crafted a tale full of adventure and humor laced with messages touching on compassion and character. We highly recommend this book for young readers and we look forward to seeing future works by this promising author.
The title says it all, readers…(LOL). This is one children’s book that will literally draw readers in and keep them there to the very last page. We begin with a young man - a prince, in fact - living in England at Garoth Castle, 805 years ago. Prince Loogar is the King’s son and basically (probably because there was no T.V. or Xbox back then) spent all his time playing pranks on everyone from the King to his beloved nursemaid to - unfortunately for him - the wizard of the castle named, Hendrick. Hendrick is what you would call a version of Dumbledore with a mean streak. But you mustn’t be angry with him. After all, Prince Loogar is a tough one to put up with. And when Loogar plays a prank on the wizard and sets him up to be downgraded from ‘magic man’ to kitchen staff by the Queen, Hendrick decides to punish Loogar in order to prove to him that he needs to be more responsible and knock off the ‘bratty’ ways. Fast forward to present day… Garoth Castle is basically in ruins and a spot on the castle tour for Charlie - a seven-year-old - and his family. Charlie is a prankster as well, although not nearly as good as Loogar was. Was? Nope. Because of an interesting spell created by Hendrick, Loogar finds himself still very much alive in present-day and living as a genie inside Charlie’s nose. Let’s just say that Loogar and Charlie must battle a bit, because Loogar is a prince and sees Charlie as nothing more than a peasant and has a difficult time with the fact that he’s living inside a subordinate’s nostrils. But in order for Loogar to break the spell and be returned to his own home, he must find a way to do good deeds in order to show that he’s not the spoiled brat he has proven himself to be. The plot is more than unique and a memorable journey for kids. And because this is only Volume 1 of the story, it will be interesting to see how this humorous author returns Loogar to his time and homeland, as well as how he and Charlie become close friends along the way. From kindness to friendship to learning responsibility while having the adventure of a lifetime, this is a book that offers everything both kids and parents want! Quill Says: A real ‘life lesson’ told in a really hysterical way!
