For that youngster in your life, here’s
a delightful little book that will be a
great addition to the summer reading list.
Title: Three Twigs for the Campfire
Author: Joseph Cognard
Genre: Kids, Fantasy
See jv poore’s earlier review here.
Billy is more than a little nervous. Even with all the excitement of
his first “kids only” camp out, there is something truly bothering him.
Listen to the fire crackle as the Miller children, in their campfire
tradition, each tell a story. Will the fire last till Billy can fall asleep?
Worse yet, what will happen when it is his turn to tell a story? Lastly,
why won’t the fly and mosquito buzzing around the campfire
leave him alone? As in traditional Twilight Zone episodes, that the
author grew up with, Mr. Cognard creates three unique and
unpredictable stories, that both children and adults will all enjoy.
The book is packed with illustrations by Gabriella Cognard,
a tween with artistic flair well beyond her years.
