Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2013
On Sunday, December 1 from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Ms. Burke will attend the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas’(GALT) annual Christmas Store in Dallas, TX. There she will have copies of her new book, "Logan and The Mystical Collar" available for autograph. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the books at this event will be donated to GALT. The public event will be held in the shops at 5310 Belt Line Road, Addison, TX. You can also meet Logan's cousin, Phoenix, who has a cameo appearance in the story and will star in book 3 of the greyhound series.
Logan and The Mystical Collar by Suzanne Burke is an exciting time travel adventure story set in Ancient Egypt. This well-researched period "tween" novel combines an accurate historical lesson with an adventurous story line the reader is sure to remember. Go back in time with Logan and experience Ancient Egypt through the eyes of the world’s oldest dog breed. See how Logan overcomes bullying and develops leadership skills while changing the course of history.
Logan time travels to Ancient Egypt where he joins a cast of interesting greyhound and human characters familiar to him, yet he can’t understand why they don’t know him. Here, there are no communication gaps between human and dog – they can talk to each other! Logan meets a famous Egyptian queen, an imposing bully, and a crafty wizard who guide him through adventures and unleash secrets he must guard with his life.
Readers are then treated to additional chapters with fun facts and history about Ancient Egypt, and greyhounds – one of the oldest and most intriguing breeds in the world. And like the first book, Logan’s Secret in the Greyhound Stories book series, Logan and The Mystical Collar offers educational projects for children to stimulate creative writing, expanded vocabulary, and critical thinking skills. Both books have been popular in classes at local elementary schools.
"Logan’s exciting adventure to Ancient Egypt deals with the sensitive topic of bullying and in a educational and fun way helps children to understand both sides of the issue," says author Suzanne Burke. "And the life lessons Logan and his friends teach in this historical journey are worth sharing with readers – especially children." Ms. Burke adds, "It’s also my hope that readers will want to learn more about this wonderful breed of dog and consider adopting one of the many retired racing greyhounds needing a forever home."
Ms. Burke’s first book in the series Logan’s Secret will also be available for sale during this event.
Ms. Burke has recently developed a reading program for area elementary schools that includes a visit with one of her retired racing greyhounds. This program has been a hit with teachers and children. For more information, please send request to info(at)greyhoundstories(dot)com.
