Sam Jones’ holidays with his Granny Merryweather are boring. All she does is bake cakes and help out at the cattery. Until, that is, Gran gets a cry for help from her old village. Something very bad is happening. Something that only Mother Merryweather can sort out. But Gran falls victim to a tainted custard tart and Sam finds himself facing an ancient and vengeful enemy with just some cherry bakewells, a dog and a cat for company. He needs to be braver and cleverer than he’s ever been before to save Gran and the rest of the village from a terrible fate.
Reviews for The Dreables
“For me, the book reminded me of the fantasy and imagination of Roald Dahl with the chill factor of The Child Catcher from ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’. It’s a page-turner, I just didn’t know what to expect from start to finish.” – R via Amazon.co.uk
“It’s true, it’s definitely one of the coolest books for young adults and children out there.” -JT via Amazon
“..we can’t wait for the next installment of Sam’s brilliant adventures. Thoroughly recommended for both kids and adults. Well done.” -MG via Amazon
“So this begins a very strange adventure for Sam and his grandmother. Read the wonderful story to find out what happens when you meet up with a Dreable wraith or a Dreable drone. Find out about the powers of eating one of Mrs Walpole’s cherry bakewells. You need to learn about the creeping Nule, Arglwd, and about The Skwarnok Aryon…and of course the mysterious stone circle!
An adventure story filled with strange things, learning life lessons about courage, and the love of a grandmother. Enjoy!” – DL Goodreads
“I love stories that show kids stepping up and getting the job done in the absence of a responsible adult!” – Christine, Amazon 5*
“At only a bit over one hundred pages, it’s the perfect book for a child to lose themselves in. Excellent job, Mr. Jones!” – Francine, Amazon 5*
“Excellent!” – De Kenyon’s Blog
