New Troubled Tweens short story for Christmas!

I woke up a few days before Christmas with the cutest idea for a short story! Mr. Kent, the magic counselor for the Troubled Tweens, has this amazing office with floor to ceiling cabinets in every color. Inside them, he keeps all the objects he made magical when he had powers in the 1960s.

The objects are a trip down memory lane for older readers, and a delight for kids who can imagine how THEY would use such enchanted things. My daughters and I spent one day of the holiday break just brainstorming the magical items in the wall of wonders, and what they'd be for. Nine-year-old Elizabeth came up with the magical lip gloss that keeps your sister from tattling on you!

And twelve-year-old Emily gave us the idea of the magical hula hoop that takes you back in time when you spin it.

You don't have to have a Kindle to read the story. It can be read on a computer or a smart phone or an iPad if you have the free Kindle reader. So go!
