Tad & Deb's YA novel The Dragons of Ordinary Farm is now out from HarperCollins:
Tyler and Lucinda have to spend summer vacation with their ancient uncle Gideon, a farmer. [...] But when they arrive in deserted Standard Valley, California, they discover that Ordinary Farm is, well, no ordinary farm.
The bellowing in the barn comes not from a cow but from a dragon. The thundering herd in the valley? Unicorns. [...]
At first, the whole place seems like a crazy adventure. But when darker secrets begin to surface and Uncle Gideon and his fabulous creatures are threatened, Lucinda and Tyler have to pull together to take action. Will two ordinary kids be able to save the dragons, the farm—and themselves?
If you and/or your kids are interested, you can download the first eight chapters as a free PDF from Tad's website.
I continue to be pleased at the recent trend toward major publishers providing long free electronic samples of books.
