Host Suzanne Lieurance talks with children's author Gregg Sealey about his new book, Big Bobby Boom! Listen up readers ages 9-12 If you like humour, action, adventure and especially mischief check this book out! Big Bobby Boom! and the Marble Mayhem just published by Moose Hide Books. The Boolachecks rule the town and the Muldoons are their henchmen. That is the way it has been for several generations. Nobody has ever taken a stand or even bothered to challenge the order of things until Elliot Blue moves to town and shortly after comes cousin Jimmy ‘the slick’. Elliot Blue is the typical ‘picked on’ kid with a penchant for self-preservation. He’s the one that most can identify with, the smart one who runs, hides and hopes that the bullies won’t come looking for him in the chess club, school band or washroom. Jimmy ‘the slick’ Blue, on the other hand, is the extroverted smart guy who doesn’t look for trouble but when it finds him he’s pretty quick to come up with ingenious ways of dealing with it. In essence he’s the one that all bullied kids wish they could be or at least have a friend like him.
