Gargoyles, Pirates and a Forbidden Love! Scott Swift delivers another terrific tale! The Salesman is back! And this time his adventures take him to a hidden valley where gargoyles rule and pirates are their long time prisoners. Willing to do anything to keep their existence a secret, the gargoyles foolishly try to keep the Salesman from leaving. Big mistake. Find out how a magical mirror, a gargoyle princess and the Salesman all come together to free the pirates in this thrilling children's story! What are the Traveling Salesman Stories About? Different from other children's stories, the main character of the series, the Salesman, is never given a name, nor is he described physically. In fact, none of the characters in the stories are given names! 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. 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! 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 new way of telling children's stories! Ages 8 and up.
