Salquin to the Rescue
Book 2: The Chimona Chronicles




"Fabulous. What a charming tale. Kids will love it...."teacher GH




by Rosie Reay with illustrations by Candice McMullan

The entertaining first little mystery tale for early readers

In the first Chimona book you saw how many of the little critters of Lake Okanagan came to life. Now in this book you will read how they don't just sit around the lake all day. Like you and I, they have schools to attend and duties to perform.

In addition, they are part of the community and they interact and work and help the local boat keeper, as well as the resort visitors.

See how their talents grow and change. Do they remind you of your brothers and sisters and friends? And how do they respond when there is a real adult emergency?

While many days around the lake are sleepy and peaceful, there are some occasions when panic sets in, like during a big stormy night on the lake, for example. But the OLK's are all good critters, and they try to do what is right, even if they miss a lot of sleep.

For young readers, this is a chance to have fun with their first simple mystery story. See if they get the clues. Hint: Basic numbers are also involved, not just words.

An ideal travel and educational title that will amuse the kids for hours - and not bore the parents too soon. Download it onto your laptop today and bring it out to surprise them at the right moment.

PS Ideal for grandparents too!

Fabulous new kids book

Bonus Poem: Firelogs Burning

In most of The Chimona Chronicles there is a full length poem or song - that can even stand alone.

In this book you have Firelogs Burning which goes on for a while, but starts like this:

Fire logs burning. Kettles boiling
Morning has not yet turned to light
But porridge is boiling
Hot oat cakes are cooling

Fire logs burning. Kettles boiling
Granny wakes me, water to fetch
In barefeet I brave
The crisp, cold loch air

Fire logs burning. Kettles boiling
The water I slop from the rain barrel
A jug is poured in a bowl
It’s icy and cold

Kelvyn Naming Ceremony
After reading this book, your children will be able to identify and adore this new friendly character from one of the later chapters.

Load this book on your laptop and keep the kids entertained for hours. Bring it out just when they get bored or cranky. Read it aloud to the younger ones while you share the illustrations with them. See which characters they can identify. Have them explain their favorites. See if they can work out the clues to the mystery.

For even older kids, have them explore the character personas and glossary at

Note: An early reader with many plays on words and languages to stretch a kid's (and some parent's) mind.
