Praise for REVENGE TO THE TENNTH POWER by Jack Chaucer from reviewers in Illinois, Wisconsin, South Africa, Nigeria, Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark and Australia …

“Reading this was fun. It truly grabbed at my heart and made me smile. I was for sure not ready for all the emotions this book put me through. It was great though. It’s beautifully written and has my heart pumping like crazy. I adore how strong Tenn perceives herself, though I can still see flickers of innocence in the way she tries to be strong. She’s more human than what we see nowadays in other books. She’s built to be realistic. I loved the gods in this book. They seem to have an air of sass to them that truly makes them seem much more human. … I adored how the plot progressed and the story made me feel. It was worth the read and I hope to read it again soon.”
— Christina Jackson, Goodreads reviewer from Shawneetown, Illinois

“So glad there are fantasy books like this coming out that remind me of the old ’80s pulp fantasy by CJ Cherryh and Stephen Donaldson — great characters.”
— Jen The Tolkien Gal, Goodreads reviewer from Pretoria, South Africa

“THIS book. Brave. Risqué. Fantasy. REAL. And with our current global social milieu, I couldn’t rate this book more relevant.”
— Jeanine Henning, fantasy author and cover artist from Cape Town, South Africa

“What I love most about this book is the way it started, no unnecessary build-ups, it started with a bang. … The plot is amazing.”
— Deborah Obida, Goodreads reviewer from Abuja, Nigeria

“I’m in favour of actively meddling gods. x-D … I was impressed with the rather active pantheon, and the open and indiscriminate play of “love stories” in the story. Especially the “side-characters” were rather interesting.”
— Auntie Terror, Goodreads reviewer from Frankfurt, Germany

“I was firstly drawn to this beautiful book cover and secondly to the story itself, which kept me hooked until I’d finished. Loved the story.”
— A.D., NetGalley reviewer from the United Kingdom

“The gods had a very old-world vibe. They came in at random points, did what they wanted, when they wanted and left. They made for an interesting side plot. I also thought that there was a very easy-going camaraderie between the main characters. Kind of a huzzah! we’re heading for an adventure! sort of schtick which made for a fun interlude between the plot.”
— Miranda Reads, Goodreads reviewer from Madison, Wisconsin

“The thing that worked the most for me was the mythology of it. Mammyth and its gods were real, living, breathing things and they were as natural to the story as they could be.”
— Svetlana Svichkar, Goodreads reviewer from the Ukraine

“You are thrown right into the story from the first page. I like that. … It is enjoyable and worth the time reading it.”
— Laila Viking, Goodreads reviewer from Denmark

“This book is all about empowering women. … I enjoyed the mythology of this book, how the gods and goddesses live amongst them.”
— Julie Oakley, Goodreads reviewer from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

5 great reviews from 3 different countries for THE PASSWORD IS WISHPERS …

Five NetGalley/Goodreads reviewers from Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Canada and Great Britain share their thoughts on Jack Chaucer’s new children’s book, THE PASSWORD IS WISHPERS, now available in paperback at Amazon and Hickory Stick Bookshop in Washington Depot, as well as major e-retailers.

“Such a super quick, and very cute story about keeping a group of small children calm during a scary situation. Even though it is only around 30 pages long, I have already fallen in love with the author and his writing style, and I cannot wait to check out more of his stuff.”

— Jemma Hammond, author and reviewer from Great Britain

“Ever wonder what kids do during a school lockdown? How do teachers keep their classes quiet when they are in such an emergency situation?

THE PASSWORD IS WISHPERS is a tale of imagination and playful fantasy set in the context of a lockdown. Mrs. Shea keeps her class of twelve students quiet and calm with a trip to the Isle of Wishpers. With their eyes closed, Mrs. Shea uses storytelling to guide them through their trip. Each child has an opportunity to whisper a wish (wishper) to add flair to the story.

The tale was beautifully written. I was in awe of Mrs. Shea’s ability to smoothly incorporate each child’s wish into her story and change the direction of the story without hesitation. I could see the eager faces of the children and imagine teachers inspired to tell similar tales to their own classes during lockdown drills or the real thing.”

— Liz Tipping, book reviewer from Joelton, Tennessee

“This is a very good story that shows the school classroom during a lockdown. I can’t exactly describe the quality that sticks with you other than to say that the story created a sense of peace in me. I can only hope that my children have a teacher like this in a similar situation. The teacher’s quiet confidence sticks with you after the story is finished. It does feel like it could use a few more illustrations. The ones that are included are well done and help bring the wishes the students make alive.”

— Richelle Zirkle, former school and government librarian in Houston, Pennsylvania

“As a retired elementary school teacher/administrator, we had to practice lockdown drills with our students. Because they were always drills, I do not think they were taken as seriously as they should have been. I liked that this story emphasized being quiet, taking it seriously. the story the teacher and students whispered was calming and kept them on task. The story was a bit long and probably could have used more illustrations. The illustrations that were there were large, vivid and colourful. This would be a great book to read before a lockdown drill or emergency so the activity could be used when the time arises. A nice addition to a primary classroom.”

— Carla Johnson-Hicks, retired teacher and primary school administrator in Windsor, Ontario, Canada

“I liked the colourful illustrations dotted throughout the book, allowing the reader to imagine what is happening a bit clearer. It’s a unique book. I’ve not come across anything similar before which is nice.”

— Rebecca Walsh, primary school educator in Great Britain
