Petronella and the Janjilons, PPB

Price: $14.95


The Janjilons are not what they seem. They look like a type of monkey but they are really children. How did they turn into Janjilons? And could it happen to anyone? 

Behind this mystery is someone evil, Judge Ormerod who wants to be the next Duke of Westshire. With the help of three weird sisters, he has to rid the land of clever children from being an obstacle to him. The Janjilons work for him as the three sisters mete out punishment and keep them locked up.

Petronella starts to look into these strange happenings. But time is running out because when the Judge no longer needs the Janjilons, they will be destroyed.

“... a great book for reluctant readers ... A good fantasy read with good vs. evil”

Bookseller, USA


 “There are three witches, a hidden school and a lot of evil in this story. You’ll meet characters that will surprise you and the ending is great.

Ms. Bentley does not write boring books. I can see a young one reading this book more than once. Maybe they can even write a story of their own...”

Bookseller, USA


 “You’ll have to jump on this fast moving fairy tale thriller to find out what happens...”

Educator, USA


 “...the story was well done, Petronella a good strong female lead.

“A fun and exciting tale of mischief and the resulting troubles, of problem solving and the outcome of working toward a goal.”

Bookseller, USA

“When I finished reading Petronella and the Janjilons, the first thing that came into my mind was, ‘I need to read more Nancy Drew.’ I kind of felt that it’s somehow like Nancy Drew.

“I like it because its contents are really action-packed. The writing is really alive and the author somehow connected with me through her writing.

“If you want a quick and light fantasy mystery read, then maybe you could try reading this.”
