When Brian and John meet up with a bear, get chased by two murderers, and are captured in an underground chamber, things look pretty hopeless. How will they find their way out of a chamber with too little oxygen? Read this fun, adventure-filled book with mysteries and other short stories, to find out!” (from Goodreads)
I am so excited to see this young author publish a book of her own! I had the blessing of reading some of her short stories as she wrote them and even got to do transcription for a few.
The Indian Tribe
This one was neat! I liked how John was willing to be a missionary and his wife supported him.
Helpful and Ham
This was probably my favorite story. Helpful is sooo funny, and I love what Ham says to him at the end. 😀
Helpful and the Rose
Yay for more Helpful! He has the funniest adventures. 😉
Helpful and the Watch
Oh, goofy Helpful! And Caboose is a great name for a moose…
The Five Christmas Colors
I’d never thought of the Christmas colors this way, so this was cool to read. 😉
The Mystery of the Gold Mine
Clues are always fun, and John was hilarious when he SPOILER ALERT! found one in a tree. 😀 The picnic sounded like fun even before it got exciting, and the boys were pretty funny about food. 😉
The Mystery of the Mansion
The descriptions of camping in this one were really amazing, and I loved how John and Brian SPOILER ALERT! helped the poor boys.
Altogether, I enjoyed this short story collection! I can’t wait to see what the author writes next. I hope it’s about Helpful. 😉
(Since I wrote this review, she has released another book and both will be sold at the same homeschool convention I’ll be at this weekend. So exciting!) 😉
