Trevens Reviewed in Children's Bookwatch Review

Gremlins, Genies and Trolls, Oh My!
Francine L. Trevens

TnT classic Books at Smashwords,

Each of the six stories in Trevens's book is entertaining and offers insightful lessons. Not necessarily only for children. Adults too may find themselves reflecting. Using gremlins, genies, and trolls, this author conjures mischievous behavior instead of spiteful. Even the artwork does this.

“Treven's insight shines through in a number of ways, displaying insight about the result before writing. Children often find hanging in there difficult for long periods, especially when a lesson is involved. Trevens makes lessons fun and she keeps each short. The concept of teaching young people through stories isn't new. Trevens realizes how useful this is however, and decides certain lessons need power. Children identify with characters, learn how to solve problems and to make decisions from them. The positive messages from Gremlins, Genies, and Trolls help develop children's inner voices and sense of justice.

“Francine L. Trevens has authored plays, been a columnist, a teacher/dance critic for various newspapers, published work in national magazines, authored eight books, and has wrote segments of McGraw Hills Encyclopedia of World Drama. She's written poetry since the age of twelve and believes she was born to write. Other books include
Pixie Tales, Elfin Tales, A Patio of Poems, and Echoes of Eternity.

“Maggie Cousins is the illustrator. Cousins is a graduate of Bournemouth College of Art and Design, UK as a graphic designer. She works with clients in both the UK and the US. "I love color and simplicity," she says.

Readers will cheer for and recognize Trevens's characters because gremlins, genies, and trolls pop up in everyone's lives. Each story stands on its own and wisely uses humor to liven up its lesson. A charming and valuable collection.”
