    Siblings Meg, Will, and Ariel Griffin are off on an adventure! They can’t wait to spend a week visiting their eccentric aunt and her giant, tongue-drooling Newfoundland dog in England. But when they finally arrive, they’re faced with a few local secrets that stir up more than a little trouble.

    Add in some very peculiar lights, strange new friends, a police chase and some stampeding sheep, and the Griffin kids are in over their heads—literally. Apparently this town has a ghost problem and the three children must race to solve the mystery before the ghosts take something that doesn’t belong to them.
    (Ages 8 and up

    Heather Shumaker grew up always wanting to be an author. She began writing books in elementary school and is now an award-winning author of several books for adults ( It’s OK Not to Share, It’s OK to Go Up the Slide and Saving Arcadia). Heather has tried many jobs including sailing on tall ships, leading llama treks, and recycling at the South Pole, Antarctica, but she likes writing best.

Much to their relief, help comes along when they least expect it-a guiding bright light, help from a thoughtful stranger, fellowship in a broken village. But is the kindness of strangers enough to help the three friends survive vicious storms, fend off fire breathing monsters, and conquer their own fears?  (Ages 5 and up)

    Author Patty Brozo will be at Story time on July 10 at Cottage Book Shop in Glen Arbor. Patty will read from her book Miss Pinkeltink’s Purse, and offer book signing. A story about A warm-hearted homeless woman finds a home. From its humorous opening through its sad midpoint and uplifting end, Miss Pinkeltink’s story shines a light on humanity. This story with children as agents of positive change reminds us again that communities are best known by their treatment of the disadvantaged among them.  (Ages 2 and up)
