Travels with Gannon and Wyatt: Ireland

Fans of Flat Stanley's Worldwide Adventures and Young Indiana Jones will relish this novel for young readers. Filled with adventure, humor, pictures, and world culture it will capture the attention of even the most determined non-reader. Gannon and Wyatt are twins and thanks to their parents jet-setting lifestyle they get to travel the globe. Their latest adventure lands them in Ireland. They start off the trip with their parents by sightseeing some castles, kissing the Blarney Stone, and seeing the countryside. After a week of fun they decide to work on an Irish farm learning the ropes of sheep shearing, peat cutting, and potato farming. It's hard work but they learn to "enjoy" it when they meet the farmer's pretty daughter. Everything seems to be going well until they discover that the farmer's neighbor is factory farmer and is polluting the countryside. Together they decide to do something about it, never realizing the trouble they are about to get themselves into.

A great reader for kids grades 3 through 6 or homeschooled students (Gannon and Wyatt are both homeschooled). It's educational, enlightening, humorous, and captivating.

I received this book for free from Library Thing Giveaways in return for my honest, unbiased opinion.
