Paperback: 19 pages

One early Saturday morning, Talee has nothing to do. I mean nothing at all. So she eats a puffy muffin and decides to read one of her favorite books, Captain Jewel and the Lost City Treasure. Just when she’s about to start chapter three, out of the corner of her eye she sees a mail flyer drop something from a bag. It falls through the air and lands on one of the smaller floating landmasses surrounding her family’s home. A bag of treasure! She thinks as she looks out the window. But is it?

Talee and the Fallen Object is a great elementary school-aged children’s book, as it will transport kids to Talee’s world, as seen through her own eyes. She creates vivid images from beginning to end as her curiosity piques when she sees an object fall from the backpack of a mail flyer and journeys out to see what it is. Don’t miss this unique adventure.
