What if - What if you no longer could find your favorite chocolate in your candy store? What if the store informed you they may never get in a new shipment? Imagine the horror, the chaos, the wailing and gnashing of teeth, not to mention your impending foul-mood. And then imagine this scenario happening on a worldwide scale! What can be the problem? What can be the solution? It’s up to the brave (?) adventurer Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh and his mishaps from Gum Drop Island to boldly (double ?) go where no one has gone before. Yes, they must enter the realm of the forbidding and humuggity shrouded land called Moldy Corners. The next question, dear listeners, is - can what happens in Moldy Corners affect you?

Giggles & Groans for All Ages
A Modern Alice in Wonderland?
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.
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.
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.
