Perfect for boys and girls ages seven to twelve, Poogle the Discoverer by Christopher Ackerman is an illustrated middle grade novel that will captivate and delight its audience. Set in the pristine wilds of Australia, is Potato Bend, a sleepy little village inhabited by platypuses. Ever since Poogle’s grandfather discovered The Bend years before our story takes place, these docile creatures have lived safely within its boundaries, content to never leave.

Except for Poogle. With his fun-loving friends, Pooky and Squeegee the snail by his side, Poogle spends his days exploring the unknown, much to his parent's dismay. With each trek, he is emboldened to wander further and further from The Bend, where he meets new characters, finds bigger and better ponds, and experiences the world outside his tiny little village. His journeys often involve a touch of danger, with plenty of close shaves and tight scrapes. But, when it all goes wrong, and they’re lives are in serious jeopardy, Poogle discovers his father’s true strength—along with all the family secrets that have kept him so close to home for so long.

In the tradition of timeless favorites like Bambi and modern classics like the Lion King and Finding Nemo, Poogle is bursting with warmth and humor - and hair-raising adventure - all set against a vibrant background featuring rich, memorable characters. Romance, life lessons, heartbreak and intrigue all meld together, keeping the reader engaged throughout. It is a fun read for all ages sure to capture the hearts of both young and old.

Complete with beautiful illustrations, and perfectly edited, we hope that you enjoy this delightful romp through Potato Bend as Poogle uncovers his family’s deep dark secrets and learns more about himself, and the exotic world around him, than he ever dreamed.
