Take a trip back to the early days of radio and TV, then fast forward to

I have a true story that happened a few years ago, My
Special Angel, included in the newbook, It’s a God Thing.I thought I’d
lost the central part of that story until I found it again while cleaning in my
basement office last week.
Hard to believe this big chunk of metal is what the tire guy
pulled from inside my flattened tire after we returned home from a dangerous part of the
city of Chicago. If you get a copy of the book, and read my story, this picture
takes on even greater significance.
Here's a link to a video about the positive effects of having wolves in Yellowstone National Park.
I have to say that my opinion of the wolf radically changed as a result of my
research before writing Legend of the White Wolf for kids. They are
magnificent animals. And I don't doubt the findings in this video.

#1 The Cat Burglars
serialized story is The Cat Burglars. In this one, our main character could
hardly believe there had been a burglary, and right in his own neighborhood. He
was helping out his friend whose parents owned Pletcher’s Bed & Biscuit
He thought it was odd that his neighbors' cat, Buffy, had
been staying at the kennel while the family was away on vacation. But, when he
found out that the houses of four other Pletcher’s customers had also been hit,
his head started spinning.
That was before he saw the copier repairman do something
odd. When he thought no one could see him, the man took a sheet of paper from a
clipboard on the wall, made a copy, and quickly returned the clipboard to its
Was it possible that the repairman had something to do with
all those burglaries?
Were they getting ready to strike again?
Can the guys figure out the mystery in time?
#2 Funny Money Mystery
second serialized story is Funny Money Mystery. In this one, our
boys get to use a room on the second floor of a building in the center of Main
Street with a bakery downstairs. One thing was for sure, these guys never had
to wonder where their next meal would be coming from.
Our main character and his friends helped make deliveries.
Over at Emmett’s shop, they had the man weld two bikes to an old metal cart. He
even added a motor. Now they could carry larger loads of baked goodies.
The boys never missed anything that happened along Main
Street because they could look down there from the upstairs window of the
bakery. That’s why, when a van pulled up and men began unloading large boxes,
and taking them inside an abandoned storefront, the guys became suspicious.
They came up with a plan to find out what those men were up to.
After counterfeit twenty-dollar-bills began showing up all
over town, the boys set up a high-tech surveillance system to help solve the
Could it be the men across the street were the ones
printing all those phony bills?
Will the boys be able to get the evidence before those men
figure out what’s happening, pack up, and leave town?
These stories, delivered for use on electronic devices so
popular with kids today, provide an excellent combination to hook kids on
reading and hold them to the end. Each segment will be fast-paced, short, and
most end with a cliffhanger. Your kids will be begging for the next
installment, just to see what happens next.
