A few years ago, author G. Alan Brooks and his grandchildren discussed their desire to create some young heroes that children everywhere could admire. Together with granddaughter Ruby A. Brooks, they have written “The Adventures of Zumba and Rumba Book Two – The Hunt for Their Father,” (published by Xlibris).
Book two in this series follows the continuing story of Zumba and Rumba, two young African siblings ages 12 and 11respectively. They are searching for their father who is captive along with other villagers in a well-guarded compound. Zumba and Rumba must survive in the dangerous jungles of Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya and Somalia. While using their bravery and intelligence, they encounter many adventurous situations that include fierce warriors, wild animals, weather, snakes, sickness, greedy villagers, helpful people, and beautiful but treacherous scenery.
“We think this book will have universal appeal to readers from 8 to 12 years of age because that age group loves adventure stories with a lot of action and Africa is a place filled with suspense and challenging issues,” the authors says. “We also think that learning about African cultures, geography, history and scenery will be a relevant educational experience. This story will show that young people can survive and thrive, even in very difficult situations.”
“The Adventures of Zumba and Rumba Book Two – The Hunt for Their Father” is a page turning read where the siblings encounter difficult circumstances, while using their brains, bravery, and good hearts to overcome them.
The authors also hope this book series will provide inspiration and opportunity for families to have a special time together, reading and sharing stories.
