How-I-Lost-My-Ear_28

The epic, laugh-out-loud novel from author Adam Beck and illustrator Simon Farrow. A wildly entertaining page-turner for both children and adults, to read alone or read aloud. Finalist in both the Readers’ Favorite 2019 International Book Award Contest and the 2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards.

Grandpa Gristle spins the story of a book-loving boy and his spiraling adventure with a state champion marching band, a moody grandmother with beautiful blond curls, a long-lost hero and his three-legged moose, a dancing bear, a poisonous spider, a baby-snatching owl, a shaggy yak of a man and his snapping turtle, a cold-hearted sheriff and his grinning deputy, a herd of 144 spitting llamas—and a very large, very hungry ogre.

“Brilliant…an extraordinary imaginative achievement, utterly delightful, and a pleasure from start to finish. One minute it’s laugh out loud stuff, the next it’s heart in the mouth tension, and then it can be suddenly rather moving… It is wonderful, wonderful stuff.”
—Andrew Norriss, children’s author and winner of the Whitbread Award for Aquila

“Powerful, whimsical, and utterly hilarious. It reminds me of the best of Roald Dahl with a little bit of J.D. Salinger thrown in. You will love this book!”
—Josh Selig, Emmy Award-winning creator of “The Wonder Pets” on Nickelodeon

“Adam Beck’s How I Lost My Ear is a marvelously comic, wonderfully wise, delightfully imaginative and deliriously unpredictable epic adventure. The drama is high, the pathos is non-stop, and the comedy is as whimsical and witty as any to be found in the realm of fiction for the young. Although listed for pre-teens, it has much to offer readers of all ages. Adam Beck is a master storyteller and a master of invention, and How I Lost My Ear is un-put-down-able.”
—Rich Follett for Readers’ Favorite

“Wackiness that I love, and done so well. Such an enjoyable book.”
—Bill Harley, Grammy-winning children’s musician, storyteller, and author of the popular Charlie Bumpers series
