The Summer of the Bonepile Monster by Aileen Kilgore Henderson Illustrated by Kim David Cooper Is this month's giveaway along with Ray Bradbury's Zen in the Art of Writing.
Growing up in Alabama in the small town of Red Bay, I was curious how Ms. Henderson would make this an exciting story My town was very boring! Dolliver, Alabama is not. From the first page she sets the stage of conflict, inner and outer turmoil. Will Lou and Hollis's parents still be together when they get back from their visit with Grandma?
Then before they get to Grandma's they pass a gate with not only "Keep Out" signs, but real skulls as well. Stay away from there is all they are told. But Hollis can't, he has to know. His curiosity almost gets him killed.
Kim David Cooper's illustrations are right on target, too.
I hope you enjoy this book as much I did.
