Author Jennie Chadwick lives and writes in the Central Valley of California, which is the backdrop for The Peach Tree Kids. She is currently at work on her next book in the series, where life is always an adventure for the six friends known as The Peach Tree Kids.
In the first book, 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.
