'The Pathway to Dragons: The Portal to Pyranis' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2016

Twelve-year-old Hannah Hoffman couldn't stop smiling this September as she flipped through the first installment of her new chapter book series - 'The Pathway to Dragons: The Portal to Pyranis.' Between writing, editing, working with an illustrator and publishing the book, it has taken more than two years to bring her characters and fantasy to life. But if you ask Hannah, she will tell you, 'it was worth the wait!' Others agree as initial reviews have been positive. The book has received a LitPick Five Star Book Review Award offering reviewer tidbits as follows: '...a short, action-packed tale of true friendship and bravery.' '...the author wrote with such character and charm. The characters seemed to jump off the page and fly around me.' 'Her backstory revealed in the end was a stroke of brilliance.' Comments from other children's authors include: 'Hannah takes the reader on a fantastical journey of dragons, family disappearances, sword-fighting, and friendship. She's an ambitious and colorful young writer with a promising career ahead of her. I can't wait to track her inevitable success!' - Stacy Davidowitz, author of Camp Rolling Hills. 'At her young age, Hannah Hoffman has proven she has the 'write' stuff to produce an adventurous novel full of friendship, adventure and heart.' - Jen Calonita, author of Fairy Tale Reform School series. Parents also approve of 'The Pathway to Dragons,' and that plays into Hannah's inspiring message to her young peers: 'Write, read and never stop dreaming!' Hannah is donating a portion of sales profits to two NJ charities with causes she loves - horses and reading - and both charities interact with children. The first is Special Strides: improving lives through equine assisted activities and therapies. The second is The Bridge of Books Foundation: donating books to underserved children across NJ to support the development of literacy skills and encourage a love of reading. Why? Books have the power to change lives and all kids should have books to call their own. Any support you can give to these worthwhile charities will make a difference! About the Book: Nine-year-old Billy Jones Dreams of having a pet dragon! After finding an odd book in the library titled The Pathway to Dragons, he and his two best friends, Maura and Roy, are off for a summer adventure at his Grandma Meg's beach house. Once there, strange events begin happening, and Billy is reminded that his Grandfather Hugo has been missing for many years. It's a family mystery. While strolling on the beach, the kids discover an underwater stone arch. They decide to swim through it, and...Whoosh! They are transported to a fantastical forest, with a view of castle ruins on a distant hill! There, they meet young Talia, and Billy learns that a dragon egg belonging to his family is about to hatch. But beware the dragon hunters! About the Author: Written for children by an author their age, Hannah Hoffman hopes to inspire other young dreamers. If she's not at the barn mucking stalls, or in Pyranis, you will most likely find her sitting at her desk, coming up with new adventures for Talia and Billy! The Pathway to Dragons: The Portal to Pyranis By: Hannah Hoffman, www.HannahBrookeHoffman.com Dog Ear Publishing Publication Date: September 2016 ISBN-13 (Paperback): 978-1-4575-4839-0 Prince: $8.95 - 72 pages, 10 interior illustrations (more...)

BWW Review: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE Delights Christmas Enthusiasts in Round Rock, TX
by Amy Bradley - Dec 8, 2016

Back by popular demand, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE sparkles in the quaint performance space of Old Settler's Hall. Festively located next to Round Rock's "Christmas Towne", IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE provides more of an experience than a traditional retelling of everyone's favorite classic Christmas Story. Adapted from the beloved radio play / broadcast, the Penfold Theatre Company has brought this adaptation back to life, with magical elements the whole family will enjoy. Setting the stage in a quiet and whimsical hall, the audience is transported to 1946 as members of KPNF radio station. Back then family members gathered around the hearth to listen to the classic Christmas cast. For those unfamiliar with this sweet story, see George Bailey (played by Penfold Artistic Director Ryan Crowder), a man who, through fateful circumstances, gave up his Dreams of traveling the world for the good of the people in his hometown Bedford Falls. A slew of events catapults Bailey onto a bridge contemplating suicide on Christmas Eve. What happens between his birth and George's contemplation of death, are the subject of the plot. This shines a light on the many struggles of humanity and brings into focus the humility the holiday season harkens from an individual. (more...)
