Chewy’s Book Reviews: The Meddlers of Moonshine

After a long hiatus, Chewy has decided to resume offering his book review service. This, strangely enough, coincides with the arrival of a 18pc pack of Greenie’s dog treats at the house. Not saying there is a connection or any bribery took place. Could just be a coincidence…


About the Book

Something is rotten in the town of Widget, and Rags-n-Bones knows it’s all his fault. Ever since he snitched that avocado from Miss Ascot’s pack, things have been going wrong. Armed with a handful of memories he never realized he had, Rags-n-Bones searches for a way to put right whatever he did to Widget in the past. If only he knew what it was! Unfortunately, the only person who seems to have answers is a half-mad youth that only Rags can see.

Widget is also suffering from a ghost infestation that has the townsfolk almost as spooked of outsiders as they are of actual spooks. While Rags-n-Bones seeks answers in the past, Ascot offers the town leaders her service as an exorcist, only to be handed an ultimatum: banish the ghosts or be banished herself!

Who’s meddling with Widget? To catch the culprit, Ascot and Rags-n-Bones must match wits with a shifty sorcerer, a prissy ex-governess, and a troublingly attractive captain before the town consigns itself to the graveyard of history.

Chewy’s Book Review

I was just given a copy of The Meddlers of Moonshine by A. E. Decker to review. Apparently, it’s the second in the Moonfall Mayhem series by World Weaver Press. The cover’s shiny. I licked it before cuddling up in my bed to read.

Oh, boy! Wow! Rags-n-Bones sure likes to eat a lot. I got so hungry reading this book that I had to chew the cover. At first, it tasted all right, as books go, but then it got kind of pulpy and stuck to the roof of my mouth. Yuck! I’d prefer a chicken nugget. I’m not sure how I feel about avocados. Rags-n-Bones thinks they’re very yummy, and I like him, but I think he should try chicken nuggets. They’re the best!

Anyway, Rags-n-Bones finds a big, scary tree. It’s the one on the cover. Isn’t that a scary tree? I’d be afraid to mark it. (I wonder if there are any squirrels in the branches? Squirrels are fun!) He knows there’s something buried beside the tree, so he digs it up. I like to dig, too, but I’m not sure I’d want to dig beside that tree, unless there were squirrels.

Then Rags-n-Bones and his friends go to this town called Widget for doughnuts. I think there was other stuff happening, with funny, clockwork cars and spooky glowing ladies, but I mostly remember the doughnuts. I’d like a doughnut. Rags-n-Bones didn’t get any, which made me sad. But then he went to this big old house where there were people who knew him, and they gave him pie and bread and jam. That made me happy.

I liked Rags-n-Bones. He liked to chew things and touch things with his nose. He worried about being Bad, which I can relate to. A lot of scary stuff happened to him, but in the end, he was happy and with his friends. Miss Ascot was nice to him, so I liked her, too. I think this is a book about how friends are good to have around, especially when they give you yummy food. I’d recommend it.

But don’t chew the cover.
