Please enjoy this free preview of Malcolm R. Campbell's Emily's Stories. Available in Print, Ebook, and Audio Editions!

Emily Walters is a sharp, inquisitive fourteen-year-old north Florida girl who loves maps, her rusty old bike, and the forest behind her house. Sometimes her dreams tell her the future and sometimes her waking hours bring wise birds and other spirits into her life. In these three short stories, join Emily in adventures and mysteries.

When her family vacations in the mountains in “High Country Painter,” a wise Pine Siskin tells her she must quickly learn how to paint dreams into reality to prevent an afternoon hike from becoming a tragedy.

In “Map Maker,” she’ll need her skills—and the help of a Chuck-will’s-widow—to fight a developer’s plans for from bulldozing the sacred forest behind her house and replacing it with a subdivision. In “Sweetbay Magnolia,” she’ll learn the secrets of her grandmother’s favorite tree, the crumbling almost-forever house down on the river, and why some ghosts would rather visit than haunt.

Editorial Reviews

from M. Stein

I like it when kids are smarter than adults in stories like this. It gives me hope. The author 's writing had a 'Peter Pan' feel to it - not that it reads like 'Peter Pan' but it's a kid being powerful and doing something positive. And there is also a magical 'The Secret Garden' kind of feel in here.The kid is powerful because she can see & hear the beauty and the magic in Nature. This audiobook has the coldest, scariest ghost voice in the world and also the wonderful open, free and uninhibited voice of 'Emily'. AND the voices of birds and much more. The widest range of voices I've heard from a narrator. And all seemed real, not forced. I believed it - I believed this could happen.
