Kids Love Books!!

Children’s Author to visit Wenatchee Public Library

Angela Morris - Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Come meet Lisa Ard who has written her first book called“Fright Flight!. Lisa grew up in Wenatchee and now lives in Portland. Wenatchee Public Library has copies of her book if you’d like to read it before you come hear her speak. Fright Flight is the first of the Dream Seekers series, and it’s based on a really interesting idea that a 12 year old boy and his family experience dreams in a much more significant way than normal people – whatever they dream while they are asleep is actually happening. A good example is that the book’s main character Patrick, often has dreams about sweet treats – and consequently wakes up very sick after a night of dreaming of gorging on ice cream sundae! You can imagine the consequences of dreaming about something really dangerous! His mom is also a dream seeker but has more highly developed skills in managing what happens in her dreams, so there is hope that Patrick will grow into a more mature dreamer that can handle anything that happens in his dreams. Meanwhile, he has great adventures – and more to come as the series unfolds. It is a fast read – and I think most kids 8-12 would really enjoy it – it might even spark some fun writing ideas for teachers and kids alike.    Wenatchee Public Library March 11 at 2:00.
