The Tears of Mars
A Traveling Salesman's Darktime TaleeBook - 2013
A witch's diary, a magic jewel, and creatures galore! The Salesman's latest tale is a winner! Every so often the Salesman crosses paths with someone from his past. This time, it's the mysterious witch behind the attack on the Wizard's Tontine! With the help of a local trapper, and a few enchanted items, the Salesman has to make sure her astonishing power to create undefeatable armies is never used! This is one story that will have you on the edge of your seat! What are the Traveling Salesman stories about? Originating from the fantastical tales a father made up from thin air each night for his sons at bedtime, the Traveling Salesman is a mystical, magical wizard of sorts who uses his wits and wizardry to escape tight spots and help those in need. Traveling from town to town, he sells everyday items enchanted with magical properties. But beware! If the items are misused the consequences can be dire! What makes these children's stories so unique is that the main character, the Salesman, is never given a name, nor is he described physically. In fact, none of the characters in the stories are given names! The Salesman could be any shape or size (tall, short, etc.) or of any background...whatever the child imagines! This distinctive style of writing allows children to imagine the characters as anyone they want! Family members, people in their own communities or even classmates! A completely unique way of telling children's stories! Each tale is a standalone story in its own right, but taken together they weave a rich and vibrant world inhabited by werewolves, witches, and magical creatures of every kind! You've never read stories like this before! Meant for kids ages 10 and up, the stories are full of action and adventure, but without the intensity of more adult fare. Just as in real life, not every ending is happy, but through the salesman's adventures your children will learn the value of courage, loyalty and doing right.
