Logan ventures into the big city in this third book of a wholesome series that’s like Little House on the Prairie for younger readers.
Welcome to Sherman! Logan can’t wait to leave “boring” Maple Ridge and enter the exciting city. While Pa is at his job interview, Logan explores Sherman with his cousin Freddy. But after spending a day among the hustle and bustle of urban life, Logan realizes that the quiet, familiar surroundings of his hometown are not so bad after all.
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, the Tales from Maple Ridge chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
Grace Gilmore is a city girl, but she has always been fascinated by farm life. Growing up, she spent many summers riding horses, chasing chickens, and swimming in the creek at her great-grandparents’ farm in the hollows of Kentucky. When she isn’t writing books, she can be found playing the piano, baking cookies, or wrangling various pets. Grace lives with her family in Ithaca, New York.
Petra Brown lives at the foot of Mount Snowdon near the little Ffestiniog railway, in the beautiful country of North Wales, United Kingdom. When she was a child, she used to love to look through books and draw the pictures herself. Now she finds that illustrating children’s books is immensely satisfying.
