The Incredible Adventure of Fingers and Boston

Abandoned by his parents and forced by fate to work on the streets of New Babbage shining shoes, Edward Croydon (also known as “Fingers”) has to pick the pockets of rich gentlemen in order to survive. However, his life takes an unexpected turn of events when he discovers a stray Boston terrier wandering alone on the streets: a stray dog with the most peculiar-shaped dog tag hanging from her collar. Unfortunately, it’s not only Fingers who is interested in finding out the meaning of this curious dog tag; a gang of local criminals are searching for this dog and her tag too. They will do anything to seize the dog tag for themselves, within the Law or not.

Will Fingers find out the significance behind the strange-shaped dog tag of his new canine friend?

Will the local police be able to trace the missing Boston terrier before the criminals track Fingers and the lost dog?

Will the new friendship of Fingers and his terrier overcome the problems that they face together?

Find out the answer to these questions by reading the new picture storybook by Maxwell Grantly: “The Incredible Adventure of Fingers and Boston.”

Transmedia Storytelling

If you are curious to learn about my latest project, you might find the following blog update to be of interest.

Just recently, Hauptmann Weydert, a reader from Luxembourg approached me with news of a historical project that he was coordinating and he asked for specific input. Previously, he had read some of my published eBooks and he could see the potential for transmedia storytelling, by my involvement in his project.

Hauptmann has created a three-dimensional computer generated replica of the Pfaffenthal district of Luxembourg, set at the time of 1867. The Luxembourg Crisis of 1866 nearly led to war between Prussia and France and brought about the Grand Duchy’s independence and neutrality being affirmed, by the Second Treaty of London of 1867. It was then that the surrounding city fortifications were demolished and Luxembourg underwent great change. (You may note that next year, 2017, will be the 150th anniversary of this important European date.

Hauptmann has many exciting ideas in developement, for the anniversary of this major UNESCO World Herittage site. He approached me for input regarding the creation of storylines for his charcaters, within the Pfaffenthal recreation. It sounded exciting and so I was happy to oblige.

Over the next few months, I shall be very pleased to update you with any develoments about this project.
