Blinky Bill's Ghost Cave

Blinky Bill's Ghost Cave  (1997-8) Post 409

 Blinky Bill's Ghost Cave was, I think, a kind of interactive game on disk that was printed later as a book. The story begins with the Rabbit family having lost their home. They're camping out, but their chairs and other items keep disappearing. Blinky undertakes to find them a new home. The gang come up with implausible suggestions until finally Nutsy suggests digging them a burrow. They're about to do so when it starts to storm. They take shelter in a nearby cave.
This is pronounced a perfect rabbit home, especially since some of their belongings are already there. The rabbits move in, the chair thieves try to spook them and Blinky spooks them back. Naturally, the thieves (the Dingo family) run away!

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.


Thanks for reading
