Lucky for us, author Sherry Ellis has a new children’s book! And, you have a chance of winning a copy!
Here’s an excerpt:
SQUIRT: TROUBLE WITH THE LOCALS
I nearly fell off the pyramid when I heard the voice. I spun around to see a girl about Bubba’s age wearing khaki shorts and a blue T-shirt. Her long, black hair was pulled back in a ponytail.
“Hola,” she said again, studying me with dark, almond-shaped eyes.
It took a minute to get over the shock of seeing her. “Hola,” I said when I found my voice. I knew that word from Spanish class. It meant “hello.”
She grinned and spoke more Spanish.
Bubba interrupted. “Excuse me. Can you please say that in English? Because I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
The girl stopped for a second to look from me to Bubba. A second later she laughed. “Si. Yes. My name is Esperanza. What’s yours?”
“I’m Squirt,” I said, “and this is my brother, Bubba.”
“Nice to meet you.”
“You scared us,” Bubba said.
“Lo siento. Sorry. I came up from the other side.” She walked across the flat top of the pyramid and pointed down. “See? Mi padre is working over there.”
I followed and looked where she pointed. Lines of white rope formed rectangular sections along the ground. Several men were crouched down, looking at something. “What are they doing?”
As you can see from the excerpt, BUBBA and SQUINT’S MAYAN ADVENTURE is a delightful juvenile fiction story for all ages.
