Talee and the Fallen Object is a great elementary school-aged children's book, as it will transport kids to Talee's world, as seen through her own eyes.

Worlds To Discover

 One early Saturday morning, Talee has nothing to do. I mean nothing at all. So she eats a puffy muffin and decides to read one of her favorite books, Captain Jewel and the Lost City Treasure. Just when she's about to start chapter three, out of the corner of her eye she sees a mail flyer drop something from a bag. It falls through the air and lands on one of the smaller floating landmasses surrounding her family's home. A bag of treasure! She thinks as she looks out the window. But is it?

Talee and the Fallen Object is a great elementary school-aged children's book, as it will transport kids to Talee's world, as seen through her own eyes. She creates vivid images from beginning to end as her curiosity piques when she sees an object fall from the backpack of a mail flyer and journeys out to see what it is. Don't miss this unique adventure.


Excerpt

Hello everyone! My name is Talee. Itís spelled T-A-L-E-E and it is pronounced (TAH-Lee).

I just came in from outside. The sun is out and the air feels warm.

Can you feel it?

Today I want to tell you a story I wrote about one of my GREAT adventures.

Itís a real story. Really!
It happened a couple of weeks ago.

Oh, but first I should tell you about me.

The first thing you should know is that Iím eight.

Yep! Eight and I love to read and writeóespecially about great adventures. My favorites are treasure hunts.

My favorite colors are purple and yellow and I wear them every day. Right now Iím wearing my purple jumpsuit, yellow socks and purple boots with yellow on them. I love my boots.

My favorite food is wild puffy muffinsĖthe yellow ones with the pink tops as big as my hand.

The puffier, the pinker, the bigger, the better is what I always say.

My mom makes them for me every weekend and theyíre the best.

Mm-mmm!

Thereís nothing better than a wild puffy muffin for breakfast.

I live on the planet Gala. Itís a really cool place to live.

I think youíd like it here too.

Itís always warm and it doesnít rain much, which is good since I donít like rain. I donít like being wet unless Iím going swimming. Then I donít mind. But we donít go swimming that much.

Gala has two moons; one is big and blue and one is small and white.

And both moons orbit together, so when you see one you see the other.

I love looking up at the sky and seeing the moons.

I call them wishing moons and every night I look out my window and make a wish before I go to bed.

I would tell you what my last wish was for, but then it might not come true so Iíll have to keep that a secret for now. But it was a really good wish.

To me Gala is the best planet ever. Thereís so much amazing stuff here, likeÖthe land floats.



Professional Reviews

Readers' Favorite
I loved these books when my kids were little. I would read a page and let them read a page. This is a great beginner reading book.

MYMCBooks
If you love reading about adventures then let Talee who is eight years old take you on a fantasy adventure.

Home School Book Review
Children who like to think about living on or visiting other planets will especially enjoy these books.
