Through the Rug, By Jill Ammon Vanderwood

Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: This is the first book in a series of magical adventures for ages 9-12.

Q: What is the book about?
A: When Grandma Emma signed up for cooking school, she never realized that she was actually learning magic. Her first recipe, to clean the dog, turns her small black and white dog, Domino, pink and green. When she tries a recipe for more days in the week, the formula expands and spills onto the kitchen rug. As she bends to clean up the mess, her pink and green dog jumps up onto her, causing her to fall through the rug.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I am a grandmother of six, who enjoys going on adventures with my own grandchildren. Although the adventures in Through the Rug have come from my imagination, Alyssa is my granddaughter and she is the star of her own adventure.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: The main difference between Through the Rug and other magical adventures is my character, Grandma Emma. It is unusual for a visit to Grandma’s house to turn into an adventure. Adventures in Wishville are a shared secret between Alyssa and her grandmother.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: Come along with Grandma Emma, her ten-year-old granddaughter Alyssa, and her dog Domino as they fall through the rug. They find themselves in the land of Wishville, where all wishes are granted. They encounter fish that dance, an amusement park where they can ride every ride for free, a reception where they can eat as much as they wish, without getting full, and every kind of adventure you can imagine.

Through the Rug is available on A portion of this books proceeds have been donated to The Literacy Action Center.
