JUVENILE FICTION / Fantasy & Magic
The second book in the magical chapter-book adventure series by the Governor General Award–winning author of Sweep, now in paperback.

Auggie was just like most other boys, except in one way. Auggie had a job. Auggie worked in the Fabled Stables — a magical place full of one-of-a-kind creatures. Sometimes the Fabled Stables changed to make room for a new beast. The whole place would shake, and then Auggie would find a new stall that led to a beast somewhere in the Wide World. It was Auggie’s job to go out and rescue that beast from danger. In this second installment, a new stall appears with a sign: Tattle-Tail. Although this doesn’t sound like a very friendly thing, Auggie knows it’s his job to help. Peering in the new stall, he can see a little village with a tall tower in the middle. The Tattle-Tail is somewhere in that village. Together with Willa the Wisp and Fen, the stick-in-the-mud, Auggie makes his way to the village, where he’s surprised to discover not one, but many Tattle-Tails — all of the villagers have a talking tail attached to them, tails that tattle on their humans, blabbing all their secrets out loud. Auggie and Willa try everything they can to get the tails off the villagers, but all they manage to do is get tails of their own!

Series Overview: A magical chapter-book adventure series featuring an eight-year-old boy who looks after all the animals in the Fabled Stables, owned by Professor Cake (from the Peter Nimble series). Willa the Wisp published Fall 20; Trouble with Tattle-Tails Spring 21; Belly of the Beast Spring 22.

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR: Since the publication of his first novel, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, Jonathan has been on award shortlists across the country, most notably winning the 2015 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award and the 2018 Governor General’s Award; he is loved by children and adults alike. His novel Sweep has been nominated for the 2020 Silver Birch Award.

BRAND-NEW AUDIENCE: The Fabled Stables series is a new chapter book trilogy for budding fantasy readers.

ENGAGING ILLUSTRATIONS THROUGHOUT: Olga Demidova is the illustrator — she also illustrated our upcoming picture book, Petal the Angry Cow, by Maureen Fergus.

BIG CANADIAN PRESENCE: Although he lives in the US, Jonathan has CDN-US dual citizenship and loves to come to Canada.

STRONG US PUBLISHING PARTNER: Co-publishing with Abrams in the US.

JONATHAN AUXIER’s first novel, Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes, was a Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Award Honour Book.

“The tattling is so silly and the tails illustrated so joyfully that they’ll delight readers, especially when Auggie’s attempts to free the town backfire in funny ways…. Funny, charming, and bighearted.” STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“Jonathan Auxier has written another wonderful book about Auggie’s island at the top of the world…. A tale of determination and love for fellow creatures as Auggie tells readers, ‘It’s my job to care for all creatures — no matter how hard-to-love.’” CM Reviews

“Bright cartoon art and speech-bubble dialogue help add character and detail to the story. The silly imaginary creatures combined with a gentle plot works well for early chapter book readers as well as for those eager to listen to longer stories read aloud. The solution to the Tattle-Tail dilemma, and the problems it caused, offers a number of points for engaging discussion.” ―Horn Book Magazine
