The Happy Hollisters at Snowflake Camp (#6 in the Happy Hollisters series)<br /><br />One day the Hollister children saw their grandparents on television. The show was featuring dog sled races during a yearly Canadian Trappers’ Carnival. Since the elder Mr. and Mrs. Hollister run a winter resort called Snowflake Camp in Canada, the children thought it would be a wonderful idea to ask their grandparents if they could visit them over the Thanksgiving vacation when the next Carnival would be starting.<br />No one had any idea, while waiting for the invitation to arrive, that Snowflake Camp would turn out to be the trail’s end of a mystery which started in Shoreham. A mystery involving the children’s schoolteacher, her missing brother (a fine trainer of Eskimo dogs) and some valuable Eskimo puppies that appear then disappear from an abandoned barn near the Camp.<br />The children have much fun preparing for their trip, and enjoy themselves as much as ever in their new and interesting surroundings. They learn to ski, drive a dog sled and solve a mystery in the land of deep snow and long cold winters.<br />Here is another exciting adventure with this family of happy people whose unity and warmth is felt throughout their unusual experiences.<br /><br /><br />First published in 1954, this charming mystery-adventure story, faithfully reproduced, is now available in paperback and eBook for the first time! Written for boys and girls between the ages of six and twelve, The Happy Hollisters are wholesome books, with an accent on humor and good, clean fun. Integrity always pays off and right wins over wrong. This is a perfect gift for the young reader in your life. Parents, grandparents, and teachers love these books for their healthy celebration of life in simpler times. Kids are thrilled with the fast-paced action and will not want to put them down. The action-packed illustrations make the story – and the Hollister family – so vivid that the reader has a feeling of really sharing in on the adventures of this lovable and interesting family.<br />

I’ll never forget my science teacher’s words the day he recruited us as spies:<br /><br />"I’m a member of a secret organization called the Rosalind Group, whose original mission was to find and prevent cases of stolen scientific research. But one day, everything changed, and I didn’t understand why. Eventually, I figured it out…we weren't the good guys anymore…the Rosalind Group is no longer protecting scientists from having their research stolen. We’re now the ones who are stealing it."<br /><br />Apparently research wasn’t all they were stealing; they were stealing the scientists themselves! I suppose “kidnapping” is the proper word. <br /><br />And that’s where we came in. Six science-savvy seventh graders. One missing scientist. And the need for some serious out-smarting.<br /><br />But there’s just one more mystery involved: how was I supposed to do this without lying to everyone I know? I was sworn to secrecy…but I ended up breaking my promise.<br /><br />“Case of the Disappearing Glass” is the first book in the Super-Secret Science Club series. Follow Jenna and her classmates as they unravel mysteries and tackle critical missions, all while trying to survive middle school!

History is supposed to be dull.  Who knew it could also be dangerous?<br /><br />Time-travel should be a fun adventure... right?  And yet Kristen and Brad find that being stuck in the past is anything but.  The Everhearts are taking part in a battle re-enactment of the American Revolution when they inexplicably find themselves back in 1777—for real.  They have no way of knowing how or why they’re there; all they can do is try to get through the day.  The siblings meet Rebecca, who needs to deliver a message of vital importance to General Washington.  They also team up with a tavern-owner's son in order to escort Rebecca back to Philadelphia.  Along the way, they deal with a spymaster, colonial deserters, and British soldiers who keep getting in the way. <p></p><p>And they still have to figure out how to get back to their own time....<br /><br />NOTE:  Based on review feedback, dialogue in this book has been edited for 'questionable' language.  As of November, 2017.</p>

<p><strong>Getting sucked into a whirlpool, sleeping in monster-infested woods, and battling psycho sea-nymphs was not how Hailey planned to spend her first year of high school. But when you’re the only Zeus in the world, life tends to get a bit complicated…</strong></p><p>The Great Battle saw the world changed forever when humans killed the gods and absorbed their powers. One power was coveted above all others: Zeus’s. Thirteen-year-old Hailey Woods is the first Zeus in over a century. Unlike everyone else, she hates her powers, because of an ancient prophecy that claims a Zeus will have to save the world someday.</p><p>Hailey doesn’t want to save the world. She wants to be a normal teenager. Poseidon’s Academy, an underwater palace where her powers don’t work, was meant to give her that opportunity. But when she arrives, she discovers the sea-nymphs living there are plotting to resurrect the gods, and Hailey must find a way to stop them before they can enact the prophecy.</p><p>So much for normal!</p><p>***</p><p><em>Poseidon’s Academy is a middle grade Greek mythology fantasy series suitable for ages 9+. </em></p><h3><strong>Scroll up and click ‘buy now’ to join Hailey for high school in a magical palace where adventure, monsters, and vengeful gods await.</strong></h3><p>___________________________________________________________________________</p><h3><strong>Here's what readers are saying about this middle grade adventure series:</strong></h3><p><br /></p><p>“Funny fast paced good light read. Recommended to my kids can't wait to read the next one.” <em>Heather, Goodreads</em> ★★★★★</p><p>“Sarah A Vogler leads us through a mind-boggling maze of Greek mythology, Gods and some serious villains.

I agree it is a great way to introduce kids to reading and encourage an early love of mythology and history. If any age enjoyed Harry Potter read this series you will enjoy it as well.”<em> Vickie, Goodreads</em> ★★★★★</p><p>“What an incredible book!! I was swept away in this wonderfully written book. With the impulsivity you would expect from high school freshmen, we watch friendships grow and individuals learn who they are. It was a very unique spin on mythology with plenty of adventure. I think fans of Rick Riordan will greatly enjoy this book but it also has a bit of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel to it as well.’ <em>Amy, Goodreads</em> ★★★★★</p><p>“A very fun read with lots of action and daring. I liked that a part of the message was facing one sphere no matter what.” <em>Ciayrra, Goodreads</em> ★★★★★</p>

GENRE: Children’s Adventure <br /><br />(An Unofficial Minecraft Book for Kids Ages 9 - 12 (Preteen)<br /><br />Detective Jones is on the case for the very first time, which means that she has a lot to learn. In her ten years of life, Detective Jones, or Jewels, as her parents call her, has been reading every mystery novel that she could get her hands on. Since she had only learned how to read five years ago, she hadn’t actually read much, but she had read enough to know that there was something weird going on in her village. Other Villager’s chickens were disappearing every day, and no one knows who was behind it. The local police didn’t think much of the crimes, which meant that it was up to Jewels and a couple of friends she made along the way, to solve the case. Like any mystery, there’s a decent amount of danger that comes with the job, but Jewels is up for it. She’s also up for writing it all down in her diary, The Villager Detective Diaries: Missing Chickens.<br /><br />This unofficial Minecraft book is not authorized, endorsed or sponsored by Microsoft Corp., Mojang AB, Notch Development AB or any other person or entity owning or controlling the rights of the Minecraft name, trademark or copyrights.
