Today's excerpt is from the fun children's series, Cynthia's Attic, by author Mary Cunningham.
In book three, CURSE OF THE BAYOU (2007, Echelon Press), time-traveling best friends Gus and Cynthia find themselves in 1914 New Orleans.
There, the girls search for answers in the disappearance of Cynthia's great-grandfather, Beau Connor, who was on his way down the Mississippi River to sell a flatboat full of produce.
(Book Four: THE MAGICIAN'S CASTLE will be published in December '09.)
Excerpt, CURSE OF THE BAYOU:
“Are you kidding? Why on earth would I move?”
Just another boring trip through the trunk. There we were, hanging on for dear life to a log in the middle of a swamp.
My best friend and I had been on some frightening adventures together since discovering time travel through an old trunk in her attic. But nothing prepared us for a face-to-face encounter with an alligator. No, siree. Nothing prepared us for this.
