Even though Book 1 in THE EXPLORERS series (The Door in the Alley) just came out in April, Book 2 has been in the wings getting ready for its big reveal, warming up, doing stretches, putting together the perfect outfit. And what a lovely outfit it is . . .
I am most pleased to reveal to all and sundry (especially sundry) the cover of Book 2 in THE EXPLORERS series entitled . . .
THE RECKLESS RESCUE!!
Once again it was illustrated by the sensational Matt Rockefeller, and once again I adore it. I am especially fond of the repeating globe theme from book 1 but this time with a brand new style of globe. Of course it's also super cool to see Sebastian and Evie once more. And I would be remiss if I didn't point out the absolute adorableness of the pig in the teeny hat. Oh yes, he's back.
Here's some delightful cover copy for your edification:
We have left things unresolved! What began as your average story of a boy stumbling upon a pig in a teeny hat and a secret international explorers society has turned into an adventure of epic proportions.
The bad news: The boy (Sebastian) has been kidnapped by a trio of troublesome thugs.
The good news: His new friend Evie has promised to rescue him!
The bad news: Sebastian has been taken halfway around the world.
The good news: Evie has famous explorer and former Filipendulous Five member Catherine Lind at her side!
The bad news: There's still the whole matter of Evie's grandfather (the leader of the Filipendulous Five) somewhere out there in grave danger.
The good news: Pursuing Sebastian will lead Evie and Catherine to another member of the Filipendulous Five, who might be able to help.
This missive is a call to action and an invitation to join in mystery, bravery, and danger. We are about to embark on one amazingly reckless rescue.
The Reckless Rescue isn't out until Spring 2018, but you can still get your hands on the first book in the series and the beginning of the epic adventure, The Door in the Alley, here.
