Good Day Folks

Welcome to Pons and the Miracle of Reunion Island by Linda Kandelin  Chambers Adventure.

71r86mXRAXL._SL1000_ 5 stars Chapter book for Intermediate Readers
This story begins learning about Reunion Island a tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean. We are introduced to a fun family and a wonderful sea herbivore a dugong whose name is Pons. Anabella and Marco the children in the family love being outside and swimming. They are friends with the dugong Pons. Because of this story I looked up dugongs and learned about a new marine animal. The story has a wonderful message and an exciting adventure. The boy in the story goes to visit a cave with his friend, Even though he has been told not to play in the cave due to being near the active volcano on the Island. The cave is beautiful and interesting to explore. The boys get trapped when an earthquake occurs. Marco’s grandfather goes out to find the boys. Pons and a bird lead him to where the boys are. Pons shows the Grandfather another entrance. He finds the boys and leads them out. The illustrations by Barbara Dessi are beautiful and add to the story.

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads Adventure!

Standard

Good Day Folks,

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland

I have been asked by many to do a post about the yule lads of Iceland. This was my favorite folktale while living in Akureyri, Iceland. When we moved back my kids remembered it and we were lucky the Yule Lads magically came to the U.S to fill my kids boots. My story adds a little twist as they one by one come down from the mountain starting December 12th. After meeting my young James and his mishap caused by the evil yule cat, that led James to thier evil mother  Gryla aka Old Hag while their father watched Leppaludi aka Ragamuffin. Thank goodness James pals save him from Old Hags pot. The yule lads decide to stay in James’ room while they drop off a gift for every well behaved child and have fun creating some havoc and tomfoolery along the way for the town and James.  One Yule lad almost does not make appearance but Matthias the dragon is ready to assist. This book has lots of action, adventure and fun on every page. I tell people it has three stories in one book. It introduces some of Iceland’s Yuletide season traditions. Iceland is full of magic and beauty.

I live in a neighborhood with sidewalks so I have an annual party every year at my house.  I load up the kids and drop them off and they walk back to my house for chili , snacks and warm cider. We get at least 500+ kids a year.

Oceanus chuckled and changed the subject. “You’re finally seeing her for who she is, aren’t you, little brother?” The formalities were absent. Oceanus spoke to Pyre as his brother, not as his leader for the time being.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Pyre lied, poorly.

This caused an outright laugh to erupt from Oceanus. “Yes, you do.”

He flicked Pyre’s shoulder with his tail. “You haven’t picked on her once since she told us of her plan to raise the mountain.”

“She’s amazing, Oceanus. Father and the others they were so wrong about her. She’s a gift to us from the gods. She has to be! They talk to her! None of us except Rose can talk to them. We were so wrong about her, Oceanus. Father should have let you mate her. She deserves to be an Oni’s mate. You can mate her now you know.” Pyre’s words ran from his mouth in string of nonsense, but Oceanus heard and understood them all.

“Aye. She would make the perfect mate for an Oni. But I have seen the way she looks at you, Pyre. I missed my chance to have her by my side. You, however, have just come into her sights. Stay with her until she wakes, then head home.” Oceanus emphasized home by lifting his head and looking up at the floating mountain.

pyre

Pyre let Oceanus’ words roll around in his mind long after his brother had left. As night fell, a wind began to howl through the tunnel the floating mountain and the ground made causing the temperature to plummet in the desert. Pyre watched Rose sleeping, and every so often took his tail to brush off the sand that accumulated on her body.
