Jennie Chadwick at ‘The Great Outdoor Book Fair’

The Peach Tree Kids author Jennie Chadwick will be on of sixteen plus local authors to take part in The Great Outdoor Book Fair, hosted by the Stanislaus County Library on September 17 from 9 am to 12 pm, at 1500 I Street, Modesto, CA, 95354. The group will discuss their work and sign book copies.

In Chadwick’s children’s series, six friends, known as The Peach Tree Kids, find that life is always an adventure and that imagination can take you anywhere. In the first installment, Jaws of Dragons, the group watches some big trucks unload giant metal grape bins into a vineyard. It’s time for harvesting in Central California, but before any fruit picking can begin, the kids spend their day playing and building forts inside the bins that they call the Jaws of Dragons. Ripley, Livy, Tray, Travis, Ned, and Bug push the bins around and run between them, trying not to get pinched as they escape the “dragons’ jaws.” Everything looks very normal in the daylight, but what would the scene look like at night? Returning with their flashlights, The Peach Tree Kids suddenly come upon something mysterious and “lumpy” in the Jaws of Dragons.

Discoveries are made for sharing. Come along with the kids to see their eye-popping discovery for yourself. And join Jennie Chadwick at The Great Outdoor Book Fair.
