Listen to an excerpt from Chapter 6:
Elanora loves to explore and has had many happy times with her friends Nara and Damhan. But this time the “wispy air” has caused her to travel too far from the safety of her nest…
Elanora and the Salt Marsh Mystery is a chapter book for all ages.
From the back cover:
Elanora lives each day for adventure in her forest home, and she is careful to be mindful of the dangers that lurk in her neighborhood. Until one day….
Through a series of terrifying events, Elanora is transported to a strange world where the only way to get about is by water and the only food to eat are the grasses of the marsh. Her adoptive parents guide and protect her, but she is treated poorly by the muskrat colony. When Elanora discovers that the marsh is ailing, and that the cause is the patrians, she formulates a plan to save the swimming creatures and the colony. Even though she finally secures the help of an elder and the very ones who at first scorned her, the rest of the colony resist her efforts to save them.
With time running out, Elanora must persuade the others to embark on a perilous journey that will lead them to their new home, and while this path to survival is their only hope, the future of the inhabitants of the marsh remains uncertain. Will Elanora convince the colony and the swimmers to overcome their fear of the unknown to secure a life free of patrians?
