Eleven-year old author Prisca Christina Yue excites and triggers children’s vast expanse of imagination through her literary debut. Colorful and fascinating, “The Challenges of Gobi Desert” (published by Xlibris AU) sets out to ensnare young minds with its unique story and setting.
This book starts with two sisters reading in a library. After randomly selecting a book from the bookshelf, something scary yet unbelievable happens. The sisters are teleported to the Gobi Desert where they meet a white figure. They are told that, to survive, they must undergo “The Challenges of Gobi Desert.” One of the challenges is to win the battle against the Gobi worm. For the other challenges, the readers must find out for themselves.
Transported into a magical but perilous world, readers will join the two sisters as they learn a secret code that bestowed them with special powers, using them to fight the most horrifying worm of all times. Will the sisters win over the Gobi worm and complete their three tasks in flying colors? Children are invited to read on and find out for themselves.
Advocating creativity and imagination while chasing and fulfilling her own dreams of becoming an author, Yue becomes a good example to her fellow children. Presenting a story set in a unique place, “The Challenges of Gobi Desert” stirs children’s curiosity of the place while treating them to a wholesome story injected with fun and adventure.
