Description
Heck is used to getting by on his own; his mother is unreliable, at best. But even a boy with a rich imagination is going to have a tough time managing when he and his mother find themselves without a home. It's a good thing Heck has wit, strength, and a lot of optimism.


About the Author
Martine Leavitt has always loved fairy tales and fantasy, and grew up reading such authors as Kingsley, Norton, and L'Engle. In her last year of high school she picked up a copy of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings two weeks before her final exams and couldn't put it down. She almost failed. When she was much older, she went back to school and graduated from the University of Calgary with an Honors English degree. Martine lives in High River, Alberta, Canada, is married to Greg Leavitt, and is the mother of seven children.
