The Stranger in the Attic by Leanne Lucas

 

Who is the intruder in Miss T’s attic?

Why is Miss T so secretive about her past?

Addie McCormick and Nick Brady team up together to solve the mystery of the suspicious man they see in Miss T’s attic. But they discover so much more: puzzling facts about the past and Miss T. Addie has to rely on her faith in the Lord and prayer as she and Nick discover the truth about the stranger in the attic.

Leanne Lucas grew up in central Illinois reading mysteries and exploring the countryside around her family home. She uses those memories in her stories and often names characters after people she knows and loves. Leanne works at the University of Illinois as a writer for the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering. She lives in Homer, Illinois with her husband, Dave. They have one grown son, Joshua.

Leanne is currently working on a new children’s series, set during World War II.

Amazon Adventures

Amazon Adventures by Horace Banner

Amazon Adventures by Horace Banner

From the Publisher:
The second book in the series – following on from the best-selling ‘Rainforest Adventures’Children are fascinated with the natural world around them and with facts and information about animals that they have never seen. However, often good nature programmes on T.V. or articles in magazines centre on evolution and completely ignore the Creator. Each story has a Bible verse and lesson for the reader to take away. Written by someone who spent his life in the Rainforest this book has the added benefit of being written by someone who has been there, lived there and experienced the culture… not just someone who has read the encyclopaedias.

Find out what it’s like to live and work in the far east country of Cambodia amongst the Khmer people. Discover what it’s like to work as a missionary in a Buddhist country.

As you clamber through the jungle and through rice paddy fields you will get to find out what to do to repel a snake bite and how God loves the people here as much as anywhere.

Which is why he has sent missionaries like Dave and Laura to share the good news of Jesus Christ with the Khmer.

Kiwi Adventures

Kiwi Adventures by Bartha Hill

Kiwi Adventures by Bartha Hill

From the Publisher:

The land of the Kiwis is a fascinating country. Not only does New Zealand have one of the most unusual flightless birds (the Kiwi itself) it has many other claims to fame as well.

If you thought it was the Wright brothers who first flew in an airplane – think again – the Kiwis reckon it was one of their own, Richard Pearse. Ohians and Carolinans may dispute that but there’s no disputing that it was a New Zealander, Murray Kendon, who started Mission Aviation Fellowship. MAF planes are used across the world to bring help and the good news of Jesus Christ, to thousands of people in far-flung places.

New Zealand has other claims to fame, too. It’s definitely a fascinating country to visit through the pages of this book. You’ll be introduced to the Maori people – who have a language and history of their own. You’ll see animals and birds that will amaze and enthral you (such as penguins, the majestic albatross and sea lions). There are dolphins and whales too!

Also, watch out for the Moeraki Boulders and the green parrot of the night, the Kakapo!

Get on board and explore this wonderful part of God’s world! Come along on the journey!

New York City Adventures by Donna Vann

New York City Adventures by Donna Vann

From the Publisher:

New York City is full of excitement at any hour of the day or night. Imagine riding in a speedboat out to the Statue of Liberty, or having a sleepover in the Museum of Natural History. You can walk across the famous Brooklyn Bridge or watch a movie being filmed right on the street. Or maybe you’d like to travel back in time, to experience life as an early New Yorker.
If there’s anything fascinating or fun that you can’t do here, it’s just because no one has thought of it yet. For over a hundred years New York has been known as ‘The Big Apple’ – the best place in the world to be.
In this buzzing big city, you may be surprised to find quiet corners and vast green spaces filled with all kinds of wildlife. You’ll also meet people who are trusting God with their lives and trying to make a difference in the lives of others.
So why not take a few bites out of The Big Apple, and taste the real New York!

Outback Adventures by Jim Cromarty

From the Publisher:
The outback in Australia is one of the wildest places there is; yet humans and animals survive in this hostile environment. Kangaroos, wallaby’s, emus, all live and thrive alongside ranchers and merino sheep, swagmen and dingoes. In the shadow of the great Uluru or Ayres rock tourists and wild animals bake in the hot sun. People dig for gold and other treasures but the greatest treasure we can find anywhere is the word of God and the truth it tells us about God our Creator and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
