Wishapick - Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk
I recently read Tickety Boo and the Black Trunk and found it quite entertaining. This children's chapter book takes the reader to another world where Jack and his sister, Lily, interact with animal characters, both good and evil. The story has an inspiring message and teaches children how to gather their wits when confronted with adverse situations. To boot, there is a music CD that accompanies the book. I can imagine reading a couple chapters each day in a classroom, listening to one of the songs, and having students write about the experience.
