Magic meets adventure in this charming new chapter book released by Dog Ear Publishing. A tomboy discovers she has secret powers she must use to rescue her island home from trees designed to kill everything around them.

MAR, Calif. –

(PRWEB) October 25, 2012 -- SYLWhen the Hummingbird Faeries need someone to defend their home, they turn to an unlikely heroine – 12-year-old tomboy Jenny. In this new children's book, Jenny agrees to help them defend their home in the hills of Catalina Island from a deadly force and stop harmful trees from destroying the beautiful island's fragile ecology. Dex, a cold man with dark magic powers, works to keep Jenny from succeeding in her quest. Arranging for an accident that breaks her leg is only his first step.

“Jenny and the Hummingbird Faeries” features one surprise after another for the enterprising heroine, starting with a pet cat with mismatched eyes who not only talks but instructs Jenny in magic. Jenny gets a boost of confidence when she finds out she's actually a white witch, able to tap into the mythic power of living things. She's joined by a faerie, a hummingbird, a princess, her brother and a friend who risk everything to keep Dex from completing his evil plan. Jenny and her comrades will experience victory, confront fear and discover a surprising secret before the magical adventure draws to a close.

Author S. R. Zales, a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators and Independent Writers of Southern California, was inspired to write this book by his six grandchildren and 12 great-nieces and nephews in mind. Zales, who graduated from Loyola University, once duplicated Huck Finn's raft adventure on the Mississippi River.
