MIss Mae, what amazing things go on in that head of yours and thank you for sharing them with all of us. You filled my head with zany and colorful pictures.

Ahoy Gum Drop! states above that it is for children 5-7 but it should include their parents and others who enjoy tongue in cheek and play on words humor. It is a wacky story featuring all types of life forms with very entertaining names. The chapters are short so little ones can listen to one or more at a time and not get bored. It was definitely entertaining when the characters started arguing over when a chapter was to end or begin.

Owen McCuen is amazing at voicing the human and non-human characters. His inflections were a wonderful tribute to snark for young and old. Your vocalizations drew me into the story as a participant and not an outsider.

What did you love best about Ahoy Gum Drop!?

Those of you who are fans of I.B, Nosey's off-the-wall interviews will be right at home with Miss Mae's highly imaginative Ahoy Gum Drop! Those who aren't, well, here is your chance to experience the inspired lunacy of characters who occupy Gum Drop Island and environs ... a fun ride for the whole family. Now, if you want a nice, neat, linear story, well, you might want to look elsewhere. But if you want a literary carnival ride that takes you places that you can only dream about, then you've found your tome. Follow the protagonist down the rabbit hole into a world of controlled chaos, filled with whacky characters and strange adventures ... it is kinda like Uncle Wiggily meets Baron Von Munchausen ... or maybe Peter Pan meets the Matrix.


Which character – as performed by Owen McCuen – was your favorite?

Cudos to Mr. McCuen for bringing all the whacky characters to life with an amazing array of voices and dialects. He is an accomplished reader and actor. Good find, there Miss Mae.


Any additional comments?

A fun ride with a sweet message (in more ways than one) that doesn't take itself too seriously ... plenty of winks and nods to the reader that keep it all in good fun.
