Josephine Heltemes is the pen name used by Mary Trost on her series of children's books. Mary's inspiration for her stories comes from many years spent working with elementary students and her own rambunctious childhood as a middle-child in a family of eight children. She likens her method of story writing to home cooking: you open your mind, throw in a couple of ideas, put the concoction on the back-burner and wait for a story to form. Of course, disasters fit only for the trash are inevitable, but occasionally you get a tale worthy of sharing with friends. Mary lives in Vancouver, Washington. When she's not at the computer writing, she enjoys gardening, painting, bird watching and travel.

Phoebe Hammond was in pain her mom tried to comfort her. It was only a sprain. Phoebe blamed Ralph Melkie for her injury. Every summer Phoebe & her BFF Inez, spent 2 weeks at camp Wa-Ta-Fun-Wu. Phoebe also plays tennis both events she would have to miss, 2 weeks recovery time. The dad was not working. Tiffany has to give up dance, Nate & Tanner soccer (sister, 2 brothers).
What adventures will Phoebe be able to enjoy now? What will the children find in Weasel Woods?
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written delightful children’s short story (book). It was fairly easy to read/follow & never a dull moment from start/finish. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios & a great set of characters. This might make a great children’s movie or TV series. I struggled with the rating but ended up rating the short story (book) 5 stars.
Thank you for the free book
