WAIT FOR ME, WATCH FOR ME, EULA BEE by Patricia Beatty

A sense of dramatic irony marks this exciting novel about a young boy who struggles to carry out the rescue of his four-year-old sister from the Comanches and then encounters resistance where he least expects it.

The only survivors of an Indian raid on their Texas farm, Lewallen and Eula Bee are taken captive. Kept apart in the village, Lewallen whistles his sister’s favorite song to remind her he is near. After a daring escape, he meets a former neighbor named Cabral, who has always been mistrusted by Lewallen’s family. However, because Cabral’s two children are also captives of the Comanches, they reluctantly set out together to ransom them and on the way find unexpected kinship. Despite setbacks and agonizing delays, Lewallen finally sets out on his dangerous mission and forces a confrontation with the Kiowa brave who killed his family—the same man Eula Bee now looks to for protection. Patricia Beatty’s affecting novel of courage and determination is set against a realistic background of frontier life in the 1860s.

“An excellent historical novel.” The Horn Book

The Nickel-Plated Beauty by Patricia Beatty

“Hester Kimball, “the one with the good head on her shoulders,” is the narrator. That good head also has a good eye for the telling detail and the author of Bonanza Girl (1962) is once again at home with period fiction. The seven Kimball children, with 12-year-old Hester and her 13-year-old brother Whit leading them, worked and saved $27.00, enough to buy The Nickel-Plated Beauty, Sunshine Stove—The World's Finest for their mother. It was an almost impossible sum for children in 1886 to acquire, about half of what Mr. Kimball could make in a month’s work. The old stove had rusted out in the salt sea air of the peninsula area of south-western Washington State. In the spring, Whit had sent for the stove C.O.D., convinced that this was the way to buy when you had no money. The Kimball children decided to work off the price until Christmas and present it as a surprise. All of them dug and sold clams, Hester put up her hair and went to work at her aunt’s hotel where she joined Aunt Rose’s henpecked husband in a killing schedule. Whit worked for the skinflint storekeeper who threatened to sell the magnificent stove he stored for them. Hester tells about the seven months of hard labor with humor and growing insights into hard work, money, and what it means to realize a goal.” KIRKUS REVIEW

A delightful Florida adventure from May McNeer!
The four young Renfroes stared in consternation at the tubby little vessel tide up at the dock. That couldn’t be the ship that was supposed to take them up the river! They had expected to have fun on this trip to their new home in Florida, even with Aunt Mattie keeping them sternly on their best behavior. And now they’d be cooped up for days on that miserable little cheese box of a boat was simply nothing to do!
It was precisely because she was so small, however, that the Palmetto Queen landed them within a few hours into the midst of the most magnificent adventure of their whole lives.
How the little vessel became hopelessly marooned in the muddy bottom of the drained lake; how eleven oddly assorted people behaved in a situation both dramatic and absurd; how an opera singer, a hermit, and a gang of villainous jewel thieves played decisive roles; and how escape was finally contrived through the s***k and ingenuity of the two Renfroes.
The humor of every episode is heightened by the fact that the story takes place in the 1870s when mannered gentility was the fashion. Readers will chuckle with delight as affectations and artificialities melt away under the unifying influence of danger and discomfort, and real human beings enter with zest into the excitement of a bang-up adventure.

The Ship That Flew: Historical Fiction for Teens

Thanks to all of our readers in Japan where The Ship That Flew by Hilda Lewis is Beebliome's best seller so far this year!
“Exciting, well-written and with convincing characterization, this is one of the modern stories of lasting value.” Kathleen Lines in Four to Fourteen
“…Peter Grant bought a very old model boat for a few shillings in Radcliff Village, an English seaside town. It proves to be a magic miniature vessel which will expand to carry all four Grant children into the distant past anywhere in the world, to Egypt when the pyramids were new, to ancient Asgard, and to London at the time of William the Conqueror, where they meet Matilda, a child in the time of William the Conqueror. On a later visit the Grant children bring Matilda to the present where she is embroidering a tapestry for the local bazaar. …” KIRKUS REVIEW

WILDERNESS ISLAND by Gladys Malvern

“**The story of New Amsterdam from its purchase by Peter Minuit through its growth unfolds realistically utilizing true historical characters and events in an ostensibly fictional setting. When Gerritt and Jan witnessed by little Alida, accidentally kill the Indian, Gray Owl’s uncle, the Indian nephew vows revenge. Gerritt also makes a vow, to compensate for his black deed by becoming a doctor. Young Alida grows up and is sought after by the wealthy van Rensselaer and the famous de Vries, but when Gerritt returns from his training, she chooses him. The bloody Indian Dutch wars, said to have been triggered by the previous killing, occupies much of the story. As do the customs of New Amsterdam, portraits of its citizens, and incidents in their lives. Altogether, this makes for absorbing reading from beginning to end.” KIRKUS REVIEW

I WILL ADVENTURE by Elizabeth Gray Vining

The year was 1596, and Andrew Talbot, age twelve and on his way to London to become a page, fulfilled his dearest wish—to see a play. A peacock feather and his own quick temper lead to an encounter with the players and Andrew continued his journey riding alongside Master Shakespeare.

The playwright found his company some consolation for the loss of his son Hamnet and Andrew gained a friend whose sympathetic understandings was to help him greatly in the long days in London.

For London life fell far short of his expectations. Andrew was lonely and bored, and his hilarious efforts to relieve his boredom made an enemy of Master Bingley, the steward. Andrew longed to go home to his family, to see his pet spaniel, even to squabble again with his irksome sister Cecily.

He tried to run away—and learned just how dangerous London could be for a boy on his own. It was Master Shakespeare who found Andrew the solution to his problem.

Elizabeth Janet Gray Vining tells Andrew’s story against the background of Shakespeare’s England made vividly alive by her meticulous research. She won America's Newberry medal for her Adam of the Road, another historical novel.

THE STORY OF THE PANDAVAS by Barbara Leonie Picard!
The Mahabharata, one of the two great epics of India, is a long and complicated work which was enlarged through many centuries from the simple hero sagas on which it was based, to become a poem of some hundred thousand verses. Barbara Leonie Picard has brilliantly retold the principal events of the main theme of the epic: the rivalry between the two branches of the kuru royal family. A rivalry which grew into a hatred so strong that it brought about a disastrous war.
