Enter a magical world where corn grows as high as the clouds and salt can be worth more than gold. A world where a mile beneath the earth live wondrous, iridescent little creatures, happily working and playing. Completely unaware that someone "upside" is plotting to take it all away from them!
In this magical world, you meet wonderful characters.
Tom, the farmer who hopes to feed the world with his Ubercorn.
Tom's wife and son, who sometimes get left behind as he works.
Mr. Withers, the greedy town banker, who wants everything Tom has and will stop at nothing to get it.
Tom's Dad, Pappy, who Tom has been angry with for years, but is more like him than he realizes!
Like the Magical Mine Moppets, Tom's family will lose everything if they don't find a way to defeat the evil Mr. Withers, but they must learn that family and love are the only things that can destroy evil. Join us in a breathtaking, wide-eyed adventure into a land that you'll cherish.
RECOMMENDED by the US Review of Books:
The magical mine creatures will no doubt fascinate children. Older readers may well be reminded of the Munchkins from The Wizard Of Oz. Plus Jimmy’s bug pal may well have parents reliving their own moments with Walt Disney’s Jiminy Cricket ... Morals are abound in Blocker’s book. The virtues of honesty, loyalty, friendship, and belief in one another take center stage with the all-encompassing value of love. His is a story meant to teach as well as entertain ... For both the young and the young at heart, Treasure Of The Magical Mine Moppets is a fun and family-friendly adventure.
