Author Website: www.TheAJAdventures.com

In the seventh book in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series, the brothers are reunited with Willow and Meatloaf, two members of the secretive Moonlight Clan who the boys met during their harrowing weekend in New York City. The setting for their next great adventure now shifts from the bustling streets of The Big Apple to a barren, windswept stretch of tundra north of the Arctic Circle. Only days before Christmas, Special Agent Quade of the Paranormal Surveillance Agency resurfaces. Arriving in the dead of night with another dangerous looking government agent named Lynch, Quade explains to the boys’ parents why Archibald and Jockabeb are needed as members of a secret task force that has been formed to investigate a possible alien landing near the North Pole. Willow and Meatloaf have already been recruited due to their experience in dealing with the Ratweil, a supernatural creature that Agent Quade mistakenly thought was an alien being. When the skeptical parents reluctantly agree to let their sons join the task force, they have no idea the untold danger that is lurking in frozen wasteland shrouded in twenty-four hour darkness. Readers once again will be treated to a fast-paced adventure story and a whole new group of memorable characters—some human, and some not. Interesting facts about the area above the Arctic Circle help set the stage for another classic battle between the forces of good and evil. And through it all, the two teenage brothers’ personalities continue to evolve—this time, however, with the added dimension of a deepening romantic relationship between Archibald and Willow!

Having narrowly escaped an evil shaman and supernatural black jaguar deep within the Amazon jungle in Book 3, the fourth book in The Adventures of Archibald and Jockabeb series finds the two brothers on school field trip to California.

What they next encounter in a subterranean grotto, and later out in the scorching desert, provide a true test of their survival skills and the power of the last bit of Haktu's blue feather. In addition to learning interesting facts about tarot cards, the history of Southern California, and what lives in the Sonoran Desert, the reader will once again witness the classic battle between good and evil play out as Archibald and Jockabeb continue to mature as young teenagers.

The first book in the series begins when Archibald and Jockabeb sneak out of their house at midnight to hunt for a secret cave that was marked on an old map they’d found earlier in the day. The two brothers, who are twelve and eleven, end up finding and entering the secluded cave hidden deep within an eerie forest. After the boys descend a stone staircase, they discover a subterranean lake where an underwater dragon lives. The underwater dragon is actually a young Indian brave, Haktu, who many years before was transformed into the dragon by four evil warriors of the Black Raven Tribe. After Archibald repeats the magic words, “Nito, Vito, Samu,” Haktu is returned to his natural body. The three young boys then run for their lives when they are chased by flying wolf-crows that are part snarling wolf and part giant black crow. This initial encounter begins Archibald’s and Jockabeb’s first amazing adventure—an incredible adventure that spans the next year. During that time, the two brothers become reacquainted with Haktu after they along with their younger sister, Tess, find his lost pony, Uno. Still pursued by the deadly wolf-crows, the boys learn more about Haktu’s family, including the details of how he was captured by the Black Raven warriors. When Haktu finally says good-bye, he gives Archibald a magic blue feather. The blue feather plays an important role in subsequent books as Archibald and Jockabeb find themselves in one life-threatening predicament after another. While the settings change from book to book, the two brothers always meet fascinating characters—some good, and some evil; some human, and some anything but; some from this world, and some otherworldly beyond belief. As the boys grow older and travel across the United States, and to faraway places like the Amazon, the Caribbean, the Arctic, and the Orient, they learn the true meaning of friendship. The reader also learns interesting facts about the various places Archibald and Jockabeb visit, while witnessing the classic battle between the forces of good and evil play out in different ways.

The Best Substitute Ever: As Told By a Fifth Grader

Available In: eBook|Paperback

Author Website: www.facebook.com/DanielGaltBooksLLC/

Follow student Gregory Gaines, as he tells what happened when he was a fifth grader at Workaholic Elementary School. Like it or not, substitutes are a part of school, and I bet you’ve had one that you really liked. This story is about a special substitute, and his name is Mr. Prosper. By the time you finish reading this book, I know you’ll want him at your school, too!

Workaholic Elementary School (WES) is a model school. All other principals and teachers nearby wished their school was just like it. From August to October, WES started off the school year on a roll; no student, Kindergarten through fifth grade, had been sent to Principal Paige’s office for misbehaving. This was true until one fifth grade student left, and another from Highland Elementary School took his place via the school lottery. The new student is Steve “The Bee” Sting.

Gregory not only tells you what happens during Mr. Prosper’s ten day assignment, but also what happens the rest of the school year. What makes Mr. Prosper so special? He is the type of teacher who really cares about his students. You may think that’s not possible, because all the substitutes you’ve had didn’t seem to care. Well, this is not true about Mr. Prosper! If you want to know just how much he does care, and why Gregory and his classmates declare him the best substitute ever, read and find out.

Throughout the book, Gregory and his classmates learn why it’s important not to judge a book by its cover; quiet people have something to say; the importance of good sportsmanship; that we all have bad days; engaging in a little friendly competition is good; change is a good thing; and the importance of learning from your mistakes.
