Even in the middle of cosmic danger, Tilda loves to create hats, for which she has a rare and uncanny knack. All who receive them sparkle, in fact-and spark their innermost talent. With a Tilda hat, people can suddenly do whatever they dream of, causing brilliant ideas to grow madly. With Gladys the toad, who thinks she's a cat, and Frank the fish, who lives in her hat, Tilda must discover who she is and what her enemy wants from her so badly. But the Mayor of Moodle has other plans, including a ban on all wearing of hats, everywhere on Ooleeoo.
His dark and forbidding actions coincide with something unworldly, threatening all and turning Ooleeoo upside down, literally. In this first in a series of Tilda Pinkerton adventures, Tilda must fight the battle of her life and risk all-even the galaxy and stars-by revealing her most electrifying secret. The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton is a delightful read for all ages and a must have for stargazers, astronomy nerds, word-geeks, book lovers, and anyone who has a hat.
She has been writing since she was eight years old.
Her first novel was adapted into the movie Tumbleweeds. After living in Los Angeles for over a decade, Angela left the big city for a one-light country town to marry her first love and fulfill her dream of writing books in a barn house. After seeing how intelligent and clever kids are, Angela incorporated the character of Tilda Pinkerton into an entire line of book projects, each geared towards a different age group to teach larger vocabulary and concepts.

Creating hats is what Tilda loves best and she has a unique talent for it. Her hats seem to make people do whatever they dream of.

On a planet very far away, a small capsule crashes and Tilda Pinkerton finds herself in a predicament.
She can't remember exactly why is there, what she was doing, or where she needs to be. While she makes a unique home for herself, her team of Light Jumpers fights against a deadly enemy. But this is not just a normal space story. This is a unique story full of magic and wonder. Tilda can create magical hats that enhance the abilities of those that wear them. This book had me smiling and laughing. What makes it so unique?
Well, there are great characters and such, but it all comes down to the words. Yes, words! The names of the characters are based on what they do and their personalities. The entire book is made up of words that I honestly had no idea of many of the meanings, but Ms. Shelton add the definition of the words at the bottom of the pages they are on. The use of language is extraordinary and so entertaining. I learned many new word and had fun doing so.
That is one of the reasons that this is a great book to use in the classroom. My mind was flying off in ways it could help kids learn new words and enjoy doing so. Further entertainment came from the rhyming voice of Tilda Pinkerton. Practically everything she says is in a rhyming voice and those around her periodically follow suit.
The very presence of Tilda Pinkerton changes everyone's life. I had only gotten to chapter 3 and knew this had become one of my all-time favorite books. I could easily see it as a movie. Great for kids and adults. I'm saying this sincerely as I told so many of my friends about it as I was reading it. I want the next book. Please, Ms. Note: This book was provided as part of a book tour with no expectation of a positive review.

The Mayor of Moodle is against everything to do with Tilda. He bans school and the hats. Because he thinks the people are acting too foolishly about them. He recruits those who are This book was sent to me for a honest and fair review.
The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton by Angela Shelton
He recruits those who are angry at residents who've gotten hats because they haven't gotten any yet. Little do they know little bugs in their ears are advising them badly.

Randy finally gets an assignment to track strange black bugs and capture them and report back. Finding out what is controlling them he proceeds against his boss to track down Tilda and find her. He is surprised to find her alive and well even with a bent antenna.
Randy helps Tilda find her purpose and help the residents of Ooleeoo. In this story I enjoyed the characters which there are many. They all seem to have strong opinions to different degrees. There is lots of adventure of creativity in this story, I loved how the author was able to weave the story together. This book went very quickly and I didn't find any slow areas. Can't wait to see what happens in the next book and where Tilda is?
Definitely a book that can be read in a day!! This book had me smiling and laughing and remembering what is was like to be a kid and have all these fantastic ideas and adventures.

It was wonderful to read something completely out of this world. The characters were unique and interesting, but the writing and the words made it for me. Because she sure knows how to use them.
I questioned many times through out the novel how she comes up with these characters and stories. The vibrant read is something I want to keep and read to my own children as it a timeless tale meant to bring smiles to people of all ages. Good: The characters are all interesting and unique on their own The fantasy and imagination that went into this novel. Bad: Sometimes I had to re-read it to make sure I was understanding it correctly. Also, some times the word usage is hard to follower; although, the majority of the time she does have footnotes with regards to the words.
Overall Writing style, story line, and general : Overall this novel was an enjoyable and imaginative ride that I do not mind recommending and plan on almost pushing it onto some of my younger family View more of my review and others at my blog: www. Nov 23, Carrie Ardoin rated it really liked it Shelves: magic , middle-grade , tour , so-cute. Intergalactic traveler and explorer Tilda Pinkerton has just crash landed on the planet of Ooleeoo.
Unfortunately she does not remember much more than her name--and certainly not the fact the the sinister Keeper of Darkness is after her and her magnificent powers. The people of Moodle immediately take to sweet, smart Tilda and her ability to make magical hats. But, there are those in the town that would like to see Tilda gone. With her friendly French goldfish and toad who believes she is a cat, Intergalactic traveler and explorer Tilda Pinkerton has just crash landed on the planet of Ooleeoo. With her friendly French goldfish and toad who believes she is a cat, Tilda begins to harness her Light Throwing powers This was a really fun and unique read!
It's kind of in between young adult and middle grade I'd say it's for kids around Tilda was an all around amazing person, and impossible to dislike. Though she landed in a strange place that could have been dangerous for her, she never treated anyone with anything but respect--even those she knew did not approve of the things she did. The fact that she could communicate with all sorts of creatures, from bees to bunnies, made her even cooler. One thing that I loved so much about this book is that all the names of characters actually described either their profession or what their personality was like.
There was Belinda Balletomania, who is charming and loves to dance, and also Ragamuffin Ragmatical, who is a rather ill-behaved twin. The book also does readers the favor of not only introducing new vocabulary, but defining unfamiliar words in the footnotes at the bottom of the page. I may be 27 years old, but even I learned several new vocabulary words as I read this book. The beginning of the book was the best part.
The middle dragged a bit, and the end went very quickly. There was also a huge cliffhanger that I know will drive other readers crazy! The only things that bothered me are that sometimes I felt it was a little hard to follow what exactly was going on; this may have been because there were so many characters, but also at times the prose just moved very quickly.
I would have to go back and reread to see if I missed something.
Also, this one huge thing bothered me: view spoiler [ Tilda's animals made the trip with her and knew not only what happened to her, but everything about her past, and exactly who she was. Why didn't they tell her anything? It was not mentioned that they had amnesia too I would recommend this book to readers of any age who want a fun, original magical story with a little bit of everything. Nov 20, Teddy rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in I don't usually get wooed by a book cover. I think to myself oh that's a nice cover, but what's between it.
I also rarely read fantasy, although I did as a child. Books like James and the Giant Peach has stayed with me all these years. I had to have it! Boy, am I glad I fell for the cover!
What's inside is so good. It captured my imagination and reminded me why I read fantasy books as a kid. I would certainly ra I don't usually get wooed by a book cover. I would certainly rank Tilda right up there with James, no question. Angela Shelton's imagination is fertile ground for her literary adventure with Tilda. The writing was so crisp and vivid that the book played like a move in my head. The characters just jump off the page and come to life.
The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton is also set up as a learning experience for children to build their vocabulary. So it's both fun and educational. I highly recommend this book! Sep 17, Amanda rated it it was amazing Shelves: won-gr. Amazingly imaginative story with flamboyantly charming characters. I expanded my own vocabulary through the authors artful use of words as character names Dudgeon, Uranoscopy, Waftage, Felicificatires, etc.
I am looking forward to the continuation of Tilda's adventures! Highly recommend to others! I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
