Fairy Houses Series® Author and Illustrator Tracy Kane and Genevieve Aichele Release Ocean Secrets: New mystery book for middle grade readers is latest addition to popular series of books connecting children with nature
Lee, NH: Light-Beams Publishing announces the release of Ocean Secrets by Tracy Kane and Genevieve Aichele. Ocean Secrets is the second mystery book in the Fairy Houses Series® of books. Fairy magic and the wonders of Nature come alive in this illustrated chapter book for middle grade readers. The 126 page book?, which takes place in coastal New Hampshire and on the Isles of Shoals, will be available beginning April 2014 at bookstores, gift stores and online for $14.95 for hardcover and $8.95 softcover.
Ocean Secrets features Kate and Luke, who readers first met in Forest Secrets. While swimming in a tidal pool, Kate peers through her mask at the undersea world below. She grabs Luke’s arm and points to a structure of rocks adorned with seaweed, shells, and starfish—it looks like an underwater fairy castle! Exploring the Isles of Shoals, off the coast of New Hampshire, the two friends discover the magic along these rocky shores. A secret new world of adventure awaits, where pirates, ghosts, and a feisty seal are just the beginning!
Ocean Secrets is published by Light-Beams Publishing, which is committed to connecting families and nature through books, videos and events featuring fairy houses. The Fairy Houses Series® also includes the illustrated Fairy Houses, Fairy Houses Trilogy and three photographic compilations: Fairy Houses…Everywhere!, Fairy Houses and Beyond! and Fairy Houses … Unbelievable!
