Has Anyone Seen Kelvyn?
Book 3: The Chimona Chronicles




"Rosie Reay is great - the kids love her books, can't wait for the next one!"
A mother in Wales




by Rosie Reay with illustrations by G.W. Foden

The entertaining first little travel tale for early readers

In the first Chimona book you saw how many of the little critters of Lake Okanagan came to life. In the second book you 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, including rescuing stranded tourists!

Of course, there really is a Lake Okanagan in central B.C., Canada, and there really is a resort with that name. So get out your atlas or online maps and follow along. Just like you see in the cover picture here, most of the towns and rivers are real. It is the magic of the author Rosie Reay that brings the little critters to life and shows how they interact with the two-footed species of people.

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. Or order a hardcopy version for the next family event.

PS Ideal for grandparents too - to read to grandchildren or to keep to themselves! Younger kids will enjoy seeing all the detail in the illustrations.

Fabulous new kids book

Bonus Poem: Has Anyone Seen Kelvyn

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

In this book you have Has Anyone Seen Kelvyn? which is supposedly written verse by verse by his different classmates. Here is an extract:

Katlyn Fishbone and Babbling Brooke wrote:

Kelvyn phone home!
Ring Chimona's cell phone
You are tall and bright
So this cannot be right
That you are so long out of sight
What are you eating?
Or are you new people meeting?
"Has anone seen Kelvyn?"

After reading this book, your children will be able to identify and recognize this shop and the important part it plays later in the story.

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 younger self readers, let them read it alone. Help them by answering any questions about the plot, people or clues. And have them indentify all the different animal, bird and critters that live around Lake Okanagan.

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

This critter tale builds on some characters from earlier books, but can also be read by itself. Once again you will notice each critter has an individual personality, often very similar to someone you know personally. Plus they all continue their fascination with names and travel.

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