School events at Carrboro Elementary

Author Andrew Chilton will visit Carrboro Elementary on January 29th!      
Andrew Chilton spent over ten years as a practicing lawyer before launching his career as a writer.  As a kid, he gobbled up fantasy novels and logic puzzles and drew inspiration for his writing from a wide variety of sources.  This is his first novel, which is already receiving rave reviews.  Chilton will present to students about his book, writing process, and overall career! 





About The Goblin's Puzzle: THE BOY is a nameless slave on a mission to uncover his true destiny.
THE GOBLIN holds all the answers, but he’s too tricky to be trusted.
PLAIN ALICE is a bookish peasant girl carried off by a confused dragon.
And PRINCESS ALICE is the lucky girl who wasn’t kidnapped. 

All four are tangled up in a sinister plot to take over the kingdom, and together they must face kind monsters, a cruel magician, and dozens of deathly boring palace bureaucrats. They’re a ragtag bunch, but with strength, courage, and plenty of deductive reasoning, they just might outwit the villains and crack the goblin’s puzzle. 



"Brimming with sarcastic, cheeky, laugh-out-loud humor, this is a smart, original, and completely engaging adventure." —STARRED review, School Library Journal

"Combines the unpredictability of a Monty Python skit with traces of the Brothers Grimm... Chilton's novel is sure to please readers looking for a fresh spin on cherished fairy tale conventions." —STARRED review, Publisher's Weekly

"An adventure bursting with wit and charm. The characters are fresh, the story is thrilling, and the puzzles are downright diabolical. A wonderful book." —Jonathan Auxier, author of "The Night Gardener
