Timmy and the K'nick K'nocker Ring by Connie Walker - OPTIONAL

Walker, Connie A. Timmy and the K'nick K'nocker Ring, 152 pgs. Prismatic Publishing, 2010.

Language - G, Sexual Content - PG; Violence - PG; 

Timmy isn't as big or as tough as his older brother, so, when he runs into the school bully before class, his first thought is to run. Somehow, Timmy runs into a new universe instead of home, and now he's expected to save this strange world. But their bully is even bigger than the one at school and all Timmy has is his backpack and harmonica. What good can he do? 

Timmy's adventure is cute and pretty funny. There is some great problem solving, and I love that Timmy learns how to overcome his fear of his bullies. While Walker comes up with some very unique names, they became distracting and annoying as I continued reading. K'nick k'nocker is only the beginning, there are also g'nome g'nasties, k'roll k'pollies, and even a g'slith g'slythe. Besides that detail, I enjoyed it--especially the idea that everyone possess a magical power.
