About the Book

Rossi Ross is the first ten-year-old to read his favorite book, Brigand Bleu, ten times--and in doing so, he’s freed the hero of the book for his one and only chance at a real-life adventure. Bleu drags the boy off on a wild attempt at thievery in the dreams of King Louis IX, some 760 years ago. But due to Bleu’s unexpected incapacitation, Rossi discovers he is the only one with the ability to save France’s past and present by locating and returning a missing emerald to the king. Meanwhile, he must also find the hidden clause buried deep within Brigand Bleu’s original book. If he does not, both he and the fictional blue thief will be trapped in limbo forever, unable to return to their rightful places.

In this novel for middle readers, a ten-year-old boy accidently releases the main character of his favorite book for an adventure in the real world that puts them both in danger.

About the Author

Born and raised in Minnesota, Ann Jon has never left her beloved Midwestern state. She currently resides in a Twin Cities suburb that embraces the arts and celebrates community. In her twenties, Ann worked at a major corporation, first in marketing and then in national sales. She dabbled in grown-up fiction, writing privately in her spare time, while always dreaming of sharing her secret love of writing with the world and actually writing for a living. It wasn’t until her son started elementary school that she discovered how much she loved the smell of sharpened pencils, crayons, and even sweaty gym shoes! It was time to get into education. Ann started her career in an elementary school, within a large Minnesota school district, tutoring kids in reading and math. Ann went back to college to become a teacher, however, found herself back in the business end of education as a business manager. Fortunately, she was lucky enough to have an office in the mainstream of the building so she could see, hear and smell the working parts of the school every day. It isn’t a wonder that Ann took her love of writing and school and changed her writing audience to kids.

“Kids say whatever comes to their mind. You never have to wonder what they’re thinking because they’ll let you know and that, to me, is awesome…at least most of the time! What I know about kids and books, regardless of their reading capacity, is that they love a great story.” Grab a flashlight, turn off the lights, crawl under your blanket and get ready to meet the Boogey Raider.
