Yes, Alison Dare was at our house, where she handily defeated the evil, many fanged, incredibly ferocious halogen light monster!
When Tundra Books asked if I’d like to take part in The Double Dare Blog Tour, I was definitely intrigued – what they proposed was a “photo post”, with all participating bloggers snapping a picture of Alison Dare having a little adventure.
So of course, before saying “yes”, I asked my daughter Hayley if she’d be interested in helping out. How? By making a short video of Alison Dare having fun at our place, of course!
Luckily, Hayley was just as intrigued as I was. Unfortunately, the date for the blog tour fell right before her exams, so she didn’t have much time to work on the video. There’s no sound, for instance (in case any of you were turning up your volume and wondering if your speakers were malfunctioning). But it’s cute and you get to watch Alison Dare kick butt!
And just what makes Alison Dare so special? Well, for starters, her mother is the famous archaeologist, Dr. Alice Dare. And her father is that dashing masked superhero, The Blue Scarab.
But that’s not all! She’s also the niece of Johnny Dare, the international super spy who also happens to be a master of disguises.
And let’s just say this: Alison Dare most definitely lives up to her DNA! Alison is a plucky, adventurous 12-year-old who finds herself in some really unusual adventures.
Tundra Books is also hosting an Alison Dare photo contest. It’s a great chance to get your hands on the Alison Dare graphic novels – three winners will receive an Alison Dare prize pack. Deadline is June 30, so there’s tons of time to get your creativity going!
