the Adventures of Jimmy Crikey: Jade the Youngest Ever Witch by Wallace E Briggs
Jimmy Crikey is the orphan alien from Attalia who was born on Earth and chose to make his home here in the magical lands of Roombelow.
Jimmy’s close friend Jade approaches the end of her apprenticeship with Matilda the witch.
There are several challenges to complete before she can graduate as a fully qualified member of the sister’s Coven.
Jimmy is told not to help Jade directly. She must succeed in the trials using only her skills.
When collapsing roofs threaten the cave world of Lithnia, both Jimmy and Jade’s skills are needed to save Lithnia from the giant, rock-chewing beatles who originated in Egypt as scarabs.
Then the Sky Islands are caught in tornado winds, and a whirlwind is threatens to tear the islands apart. Matilda instructs Jade to go to their aid. Jimmy is forbidden from interfering, but he does help Jade to carry out her plan to save the Islanders. Can the youngest witch overcome the danger?
The dreaded Giant Scrabs return to their destructive chewing of rocks, which threatens the very structure of Roombelow, far away from Lithnia.
Jimmy and Jade trace the beatles resting place to a floating island in the Arctic seas. There the Centaurians, a race from planet Xe in the Alpha Centauri system, are seeking crystal diamonites from Lithnia to protect their world from gamma rays emitted by one of their suns. To save their planet, they would risk destroying Earth. Jimmy employs XRU, his talkative star ship’s navigator, to help the aliens and avoid an intergalactic war.
Matilda, the head of the four guardian witches of Earth’s realms, is called to move to a higher level. Who will she appoint as her successor?

Wallace was born on the outskirts of Durham City eighty years ago. Married at twenty-one to his childhood sweetheart, Pat, whom he first met at the age of eleven, they are nearing their fifty-ninth wedding anniversary.
They never lived more than five miles from the Cathedral City until they were almost forty years old with two children, boy. Then, employment took their small family to the south coast: E.Sussex for a decade, then another ten years in lovely Hampshire.
Employment brought them back North, and now retired, they live on the edge of a small rural town in beautiful East Lancashire, NW England.
An author of children’s books with several works published on Amazon, retirement gave Wallace the time to concentrate on writing.
His latest project is bringing the Jimmy Crikey stories to market in audio formats with the help and direction of a great narrator.
The fifth Jimmy Crikey fantasy story was published in December 2022, and he is now concentrating on writing a memoir recounting events that moulded his life up to the age of seventeen: the year when he met Pat for the second time and the year his father died.
His account highlights his turnaround from a humble childhood living for many years in in poverty to achieving success in a career in technical sales and his many adventures in International markets.
