The Amazing Adventures Of Jimmy Crikey


Do you know that beneath the very ground on which you walk and beyond the stars above your head are more worlds than you could ever dream of?

There are monsters and witches and wizards who wield magic.

Join Jimmy's epic adventures in worlds far across the ocean. Fear the powerful weapons that threaten to destroy everything,

Jimmy Crikey is a brave soul who faces some terrifying challenges. Solving mysteries and averting mayhem, his incredible courage allows him to free up his abilities to shine and rise above every challenge in his path, on his way to discovering why he looks so extraordinary. With a bright red mop of unruly hair, big blue eyes, a small snub rose, pointed ears and enormous feet, Jimmy is mercilessly bullied. He runs away to search for a world where he can fit in.

Following a midnight flight through the forest, he stumbles into a lost underground world called Roombelow and magic, adventure, danger and excitement await.

Jimmy meets the little lady who lives at the bottom of the well and doesn't know how she got there. Aunt Ethel shows him a starship that could take him home. Jimmy comes across trolls, little people, traders and diamonite thieves, water sprites, witches, helpful dolphins and interplanetary warfare.

Jimmy learns the biggest lessons of his life: what matters most is what resides within, not what you look like from outside.

About the Author

Author Name : Wallace E Briggs

     Now retired from a technical sales role marketing toxic gas analysers I have concentrated on bringing to market four (soon to be five), stand-alone, fantasy adventures for MG children, describing the Adventures of Jimmy Crikey. My fourth in a series of Jimmy Crikey's Adventures started off life almost fifty years ago on the beach at Great Yarmouth. A few showery afternoons drove my five-year-old son and his four new friends to seek shelter in our beach tent. To keep them amused (quiet) for a while I had to tell them a story – on the hoof as we hadn't brought any books down to the beech. Almost fifty years later they are now in print via Amazon/KDP and the latest in the series is My writing starts when pick up the pen (figuratively) and just start writing with no idea where the story will ‘go'. My stories must have been influenced by Enid Blyton's Magic Faraway Tree which entertained me and my two boys over and over. As did Rupert Bear. Later, Tolkien's Fellowship of the Rings trilogy – an absolute standard and all of the Harry Potter adventures. More recently Wilbur Smith and David Baldacci's books never fail to entertain. Future projects? Just getting over the traumas of getting Jimmy Crikey's The Emerald Lake published on Amazon. As I get older things (processes) that I once raced through now take an age and without help would never reach the market. When I recover I will have a choice of three unfinished projects. Jimmy's fifth adventure has started after which, God willing, I think the memoir deserves my attention.

Latest Poem

Countless things put together make us who we are

Perhaps what we’ve learned or things seen near and far

True or false learned from numerous varied sources

Or perhaps something seen travelling many courses


It has been my great pleasure to see some special lands

Majestic mountain vistas, Alberta’s haunting badlands

The vastness of the prairie with horizon never reached

The power of the ocean from a shell strewn beach


I’ve crossed giant rivers, walked beside the babbling brook

Seen the best and worst of nature seldom pictured in a book

The crags of mountain passes, topped by winter’s sparkling load

Miles and miles of wheat the sun and rain has turned to gold.


Acres and acres of deep green peas, topped by the pink of bloom.

Offset in midst of summer with bright yellow canola bloom

A patch-work quilt from nature and the work of many hands

Laid out in squares and diamonds across a great productive land.


The history of Bedford Basin, Louisbourg, Queenston Heights

Twenty four hours of daylight, mysterious northern lights

Beaver pelts to England to make all kinds of hats

And each spring the best of sugar boiled from Maple sap.


A strong beautiful stallion, head high, nostrils flared,

Eyes full of fire and danger as he guards his heard of mares

Several hundred cattle grazing the luscious grass

Or bedded in the shade to let the hot day pass.


Hundreds of pictures we catalogue as we go passing by

Let the good ones erase the bad, or at least let them try

Some of it we saw and some of it we learned.

Some good and some bad but somehow always earned.


There’s always strife and woe, you don’t need to hunt it up

Forget it, let it lay. You know there’s the rub

You may hate this or that but it’s all part of the way

You became who you are; what you are today.
