Young readers will meet a boy with a lack of sound judgment in Missy Harvey’s Epaminondas, Where Is Your Common Sense?, an Xlibris release. This book will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12-16, 2011.

The story begins when Epaminondas visits his grandmother’s house. His grandma always had games in store for him and makes special things for him to eat or bring home. One day, his grandma gave him a beautiful chocolate cupcake with lots of icing to eat after dinner. However, due to Epaminondas’ lack of common sense, the cupcake melted as he was going home. To his mother’s surprise, all that was left of the once yummy cupcake is an ugly, brown ball of dough.

During his succeeding visits to grandma’s house, similar things happened. Grandma always gave him something new to bring; however, his poor thinking always caused things to end with a bad note. From taking home a fresh block of butter to a cute little puppy, something was bound to go wrong. Will Epaminondas ever have common sense?

An amusing story with vivid illustrations, Epaminondas, Where Is Your Common Sense? will surely give delight to readers both young and old.
