Award-winning Children's Author, Donna M. McDine, Releases Fourth Children’s Book, A Sandy Grave

Take a spell bounding ride into the stories of award-winning children's author, Donna McDine. Be prepared for the adrenaline rush of escaping via the Underground Railroad, the slip of the ice beneath your skates, the harsh reality of the Royal Navy Press Gangs, the discovery of whale poachers at the beach, or experience the first day of kindergarten nervousness. The roller coaster action in each escapade will transport the reader into a specific time period. One never knows where they will end up, past or present. So come on in for a front row seat in Donna's writing world.

McDine’s latest children’s book, A Sandy Grave immerses the reader in a summer adventure at the beach that is interrupted by a beached whale and poachers of the whale’s teeth. What is a group of friends to do when they find themselves thrown into discovering the identity of the mysterious men at the beach as the Violations of the Endangered Species Act and the Mammal Protection Act come into play?
