Suzanne Burke will be promoting her newly released book at two events in September in Charleston, South Carolina. Thursday evening, September 26, at 5:00 PM. Ms. Burke will be appearing at Blue Bicycle Books at 420 King St., Charleston, SC and Saturday, September 28, at 1:00 PM at Magnifilous Toy Emporium, 525 King St., Charleston, SC. Children and adults are invited to attend and meet a retired racing greyhound.
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.
“Logan’s exciting adventure to Ancient Egypt deals with the sensitive topic of bullying and in an 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 these events.
