Another book in the Amanda Travels series has been released by Central Avenue Publishing, a Ladner-based publishing company.
Canadian children’s author, and former Delta resident, Darlene Foster, has published her ninth book in the popular Amanda Travels series, Amanda in France: Fire in the Cathedral, available in most book stores.
In this book, intrepid traveller Amanda Ross, explores the exciting streets of Paris, the fabulous Palace of Versailles and the delightful gardens of the painter, Claude Monet, while being drawn into the mystery surrounding the destructive fire of Notre Dame Cathedral.
The Amanda Travels series introduces readers to new cultures and countries by weaving mystery and adventure into the stories. They are perfect for tweens or reluctant older readers and appeal to teachers and librarians looking for new material for their classrooms. Adults also enjoy the stories and many individuals learning English find the language easy to follow.
Foster bases her novels on her own travels. Brought up on a ranch in southern Alberta, she dreamt of travelling the world, meeting interesting people and writing stories. It’s no surprise that she’s now an author of the exciting Amanda Travels series featuring spunky 12-year-old Amanda Ross, who loves to travel to unique places. Readers of all ages enjoy travelling with Amanda as she encounters the unknown and unravels one mystery after another. When not travelling herself and collecting ideas for her books, Foster divides her time between Canada and Spain with her husband and entertaining rescue dogs, Dot and Lia. She is proof that dreams can come true.
Foster will be at Albany Books on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. where she will be reading from and signing her books, as well as answering questions.
