Product Description

Product Description

It's a dirty job, but he loves it.

Her Majesty's Explorer: a Steampunk bedtime story
St.John Murphy Alexander walks the world exploring for the Queen. He sees the most extraordinary landscapes, creatures and weather. He gets very, VERY dirty. Exhausted, he returns to HQ and gets ready for a well deserved rest and some sweet dreams.
This gentle book, written by Steampunk novelist Emilie P. Bush and brilliantly illustrated by William Kevin Petty, is the perfect wind-down for your little adventurer.

About the Author: Journalist and writer Emilie P. Bush has written two novels. Her first, Chenda and the Airship Brofman, was a "ripping good yarn!" and the tale was a 2010 Semi-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. The Gospel According to Verdu picks up the epic tale where Chenda left off - high in the skies. Emilie P. Bush lives, laughs and writes with her family in Atlanta.

About the Illustrator: William Kevin Petty is the founder of Allied Aethernautics, LTD., a Steampunk illustration company and specializes in exceptionally detailed pencil sketches and acrylic paintings. His work has appeared in Steampunk Magazine and across the web. Captain Petty, when he is not deployed with the U.S. Army, lives and draws in central Louisiana.

I had the honor of reviewing Her Majesty's Explorer for my blog about two weeks before its release. It's a wonderful and charming children's story that is sure to appeal to everyone - steampunk or not! I even ordered a copy for my two young cousins so they can enjoy it too! Great job, Emilie and Kevin!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring the Ducky Home! 18 Mar 2012
By Maryalice Tomoeda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Best bedtime story ever. I've been waiting for a whimsical steampunk story for kids forever and the steamduck does it hands down. Captain Petty's artwork is breathtaking and beautiful and Miss Em's rhymes are outstanding. Makes one yearn to tromp through the unknown in serch of a steamduck of my very own. I bought one for all the little ones of my list and so far they've all been blown away! I highly recommend you bring the ducky home. Can't wait for the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars The First And Only Steampunk Bedtime Children's Story 28 Feb 2012
By Barbara Barth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the most wonderful book! The illustrations are amazing, the storyline so sweet. A great introduction to kids (and adults) to Steampunk. And if you ask, what is Steampunk, it doesn't matter if you don't know. The book holds its own as the most charming children's book I have seen in years. And I love children's books. Your kids will thank you for buying them this book and you will love it too. EVERYONE loves Steampunk duck - a little extra perk in the book. Thanks Emilie and Kevin for such an amazing story and perfect illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining! 14 May 2012
By Marya Lloyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was our first foray into the world of steampunk, but I needn't have worried that we would be lost; at its heart this is a wonderful story about a young adventurer and his travels. It captured my youngest (3) right away, as she is very imaginative, and my older daughter (5) just loved the illustrations. It was a great team effort to create a delightful bedtime story. Plus there's a bonus story at the end that has caused chants of "Steamduck!" to float downstairs from "rest time." Very, very enjoyable.
