Summer Reading Books for Boys Special!
There is still plenty of time for summer reading.
Recently I’ve read a number of articles, online and in print, talking about beating summer boredom. Well, my action-adventures & mysteries can help you do that for your children.
Kids tell me that reading one of my books is like being in an exciting or scary movie. And the books are equally enjoyed by boys and girls.
So here’s the deal. You may purchase one or all of my books for only $8 each (regular $10.95 ea) if you mail your order between right now, and August 31, 2009. The books have larger print, lots of white space, and they’re filled with exciting stories, dialog, humor, and heart-pounding action & adventure.
I have the following titles available right now:
NORTH WOODS POACHERS
MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY
BIG RIG RUSTLERS
SECRET OF ABBOTT'S CAVE
LEGEND OF THE WHITE WOLF
These books have been compared by readers and reviewers to Tom Sawyer, The Hardy Boys, Huck Finn, Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, Tom Swift, Star Wars, Scooby-Doo, Lemony Snicket, and adventure author Jack London.
NEWSPAPER CAPER 0-9729256-4-3 Tom Stevens was a super salesman. He and his friends delivered newspapers early every morning. Along their route, the boys often saw some pretty strange things. Then one day they actually became the story. Readers will like the humor, attack dogs, car thieves, and the chop shop Tom and the others uncover. This story reminds us of how important friendship is. It also teaches God isn't just for emergencies. He wants to guide our lives every day.
NORTH WOODS POACHERS 0-9729256-8-6
The Washburn families have been coming to the same cabins, on the same lake, catching the same fish, for about as long as Andy can remember. And he's sick of it. This summer would be different he decided. Only he never imagined how different. The story is filled with excitement, danger, humor, and drama. In the end, Andy learns the concepts of family tradition, that God loves justice while He hates injustice, and it is important to follow the rules. Readers will enjoy the gigantic, jet-powered floatplane, computers, home made radio transmitter, and naturally, no one will ever forget Big Wally. He’s a fish of course.
MOUNTAIN CABIN MYSTERY 0-9729256-3-5
Scott and his friends had dreamed and prepared for their first wilderness camping adventure. When they become separated from their group in a mountain fog, trouble begins. There was that bear, the decrepit suspension bridge over a bottomless gorge, the sheer cliff in the dark, those terrorists in the remote cabin, the Army, the helicopter ride, and…
This story reminds us what happens if one of God's lambs is lost.
