Somewhere out in the Sombrero Galaxy, Tilda Pinkerton--mystical maker of mysterious, magnificent, magical hats--is being hunted by the Keeper of Darkness. Yet Tilda simply does not recall, at all, after taking a tremendous fall.
No one on Ooleeoo, where Tilda crash-landed, knows she is from another planet. Only Star Jumper Randy can tell her—but he’s light years away, frantically searching for his missing love, desperate that without her, the entire galaxy soon may be lost. 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 seem to coincide with something unworldly, threatening all with a nameless dread and slowly blacking out the sky. With Ooleeoo itself turning upside down, how can anyone survive?

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 – Book One: Crash-Landing in Ooleeoo is a wordsmith masterpiece by Angela Shelton — a woman once terrified of dictionaries who now prefaces her book with a “dictionary of characters” ranging from A (Aaron Arachnophobia) to Z (Zalika Zizel Zaftig).
