Editorial Reviews

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. Her Majesty's Explorer is her first children's book, and Ms. Bush is thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with William Kevin Petty. Emilie P. Bush lives, laughs and writes in Atlanta.

More About the Author

Former Host of Georgia Public Radio's "Georgia Gazette" Emilie P. Bush has traded in writing the news for writing Steampunk. Her debut novel, Chenda and the Airship Brofman, sends Chenda and her companions up in the air, across a desert, through a mountain and under the sea in a thrilling adventure. Emilie P. Bush lives and writes in Atlanta. Currently, Emilie is writing the follow up to Chenda - Called The Gospel According to Verdu, and a modern mythological fantasy entitled Cryptid.

"I started in radio, writing and reading the news. The first national story I sold was when I was 19 years old, working in the WOUB news room in Athens, Ohio. A chemical plant in Belpre, Ohio, had exploded and I broke the story to NPR news. I decided two things on that day: I wanted to cover the arts (as I really felt AWFUL for being happy when lives had been lost) and I was in love with public radio. I worked on and off in radio for the next dozen years - Finally ending up at 'Georiga Gazette.' I left radio - perhaps for good, shortly after my daughter was born. After my second child came along, I started to have this feeling like, 'if I don't write a novel, I'll die a horrible death.' So I started writing, and what flowed out of me was Chenda and the Airship Brofman."

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!

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!

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.

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.

Bought the kindle version. Lovely story for the littlies, with some bigger words to stretch the reading ability. Oh, and Steamduck. Don't forget Steamduck.
