About the author:
Thom Jones, who does not sing "What's New, Pussycat?" lives in the Adirondacks with his wife and their three kids--the long-haired, electric guitar playing teenage son, the fuzzy-haired ninja-spiderman in training pre-teen son, and the little daughter who is convinced that she is an indestructible monkey. He started writing the Guardians of Elestra stories for his kids in 2004, and he finally decided that Tobungus the mushroom man had to move beyond his family to a wider audience. When he's not writing, he is either homeschooling his kids or running crime scene camps for kids somewhere in the Northeast. He started Peekaboo Pepper Books as a way to entertain and educate kids. His stories are filled with unique fantasy elements, challenging vocabulary, humor, and mysteries that weave their way through all of the books in the Guardians of Elestra series. His website, has more information about Elestra, including snippets from books in the library, prophecies, menus from Glabber's Grub Hut, and contests which allow readers to submit stories and artwork which may be displayed on the website and in a printed book. He will be adding a science fiction series ("The Galactic Gourmets") which finds spaceship captain Hugo Fitzboris in a race to deliver gourmet food throughout the galaxy while battling the cheese creatures under the guidance of King Gouda. And, really, how many starships have you seen with a take-out window near their landing gear? He is also working on the "Adventures of Boron Jones," a superhero series that includes a healthy dose of chemistry. Of course, sulfur will end up on the side of evil, but who can guess which side Ytterbium will choose.

The Guardians of Elestra

Authored by Thom Jones
Edited by Linda Jones

Derek and Deanna join Iszarre, Glabber, and even Tobungus to battle Eldrack and his followers on the streets of Amemnop. When Tobungus finishes bragging about his achievements in battle, they're all off, along with Zorell, to the Forest Realm. They must soar through the Floating Forest over the Iron Range before heading to visit their uncle and his sassy cow in the Antikrom Mountains, where time occasionally marches in reverse. Try as they might, their uncle refuses to give up his life as a yak farmer to join them in their battle against Eldrack. But, they get the feeling that they'll see him again, as the final battle draws closer.
