"There's a legend for children who are sad and who cry,
About a little boy ghost, dressed in black, who can fly
About a big, metal giant who stands sky high.
They'll always help you and they'll never lie.
They'll show you that even in your darkest hour
Deep inside you lies incredible power.
They are Little Wade and Watchtower!"

“There’s a legend for children who are sad and who cry,” and it’s written by Sean March. He will make unhappy children smile again when they read Little Wade and Watchtower. It’s a delightful, exceptional story that contains its fair share of sadness, but lots of humor too. The setting is in New York, 1899 with an old-world charm infused with magic, and lots of interesting action. The characters are amazing, even the creepy ones. Abigail is sweet and very smart. Little Wade and Watchtower are friends you will want to have."" (5-Star Review) Michelle Stanley for Readers Favorites"
