With so many children around the world #stayinghome to help fight Covid-19, I thought it was time to introduce my young friend Brody Cody. I hope that you enjoy reading his story as much as I enjoyed writing it. He had been hiding in my drawer for several years, but recently I felt him calling to me. Now, he is ready to face the world and he would love to meet you.
BRODY CODY AND THE STEPMOTHER FROM OUTER SPACE is a funny chapter book for children aged 6-9. I’m sure that it will be the first in a series about Brody Cody, a boy who can’t help getting involved in all sorts of crazy adventures with the help of his friends, Kyle and Anastasia.
In the first book, Brody thinks an alien invasion might be about to start in his own home – just as his life starts to spiral out of control.
BRODY CODY AND THE STEPMOTHER FROM OUTER SPACE
Brody Cody is almost eight years old and definitely, absolutely, positively does NOT want a mother. His mother died when he was a baby but life with his dad is just perfect.
Brody is horrified when his father goes away to a publishing conference and returns with a wife, Pandora Smith, who is a children’s author. His life spirals out of control as he is forced to eat healthy food, do his homework and help with some chores.
Even worse, he and his friends suspect that his new stepmother might be an alien from outer space.
A hilarious adventure for children aged 6-9.
Here is an excerpt from a wonderful 5-star review on Reader’s Favorite.
“I loved Brody Cody and the Stepmother from Outer Space by Toni Pike. I like the rhyming of Brody Cody and I’m sure children will too; the book title in itself is an attraction. While younger children will be fascinated by the story, adults will see the hidden messages delivered tongue in cheek referring to healthy eating (even vegetables can taste nice), cleanliness and the benefits of doing homework. Brody’s new stepmother has eyes of different colours and her arrival at the same time as the children witness a shooting star is absolute proof that she comes from outer space. In a step away from her normal thrillers for adults, author Toni Pike has hit the mark with this children’s book. It is a delight to read. I would highly recommend this book for parents and grandparents of children to read to and as a reading book. What can I say, I loved it. A well-deserved 5 stars.”
