9780882406039: Seldovia Sam and the Blueberry Bear (Misadventures of Seldovia Sam)

Young readers love following this inquisitive eight-year-old and his trusty dog, Neptune, on misadventures that are full of fun, humor, suspense, and natural history, geography, and other lessons in life. This exciting series continues with Sam dreading the looming first day of school where he fears his annual back-to-school essay about his summer's activities will not be as impressive as the know-it-all Melody Chambers's. For an end-of-summer adventure, Sam goes blueberry picking with his mom and best friend, Billy. He learns the hard way about safety and respect for wildlife when he has a face-to-face encounter with a bear cub, its protective mom close behind. Heroic Neptune saves the day as she protects her masters after they are chased back into their truck. Find out if this exciting turn of events will make Sam's essay a grand prize winner.

From the Author:

"Alaska is so big that if you could lay it on top of the continental United States, it would cover one-fifth of all the other states. And there really is a place called Seldovia. It's about 250 miles south of Anchorage. But there are no roads to get there. To reach Seldovia you have to fly in a plane or take a boat. Some of the place-names in Sam's stories are real; others are made up. Like Sam's parents, lots of men and women in Seldovia fly Bush planes and fish commercially. Is there a real Sam Peterson in Seldovia? Not by that name. But there's a little bit of Sam in all the kids of Seldovia, just as I suspect there's a little bet of Sam in you."   ---Susan Woodward Springer

From the Back Cover:

This high-interest, beginner-reader book is perfect for young readers ready to move up from picture books and for older students who are "reluctant readers." Keyword internet search using "reluctant reader" returned more than 112,000 references, demonstrating a demand for resources for teachers and parents. There are nearly 25 million children Grade k - 4 in the USA. (US Census Bureau, Census 2000) Like the Redpost series by Louis Sachar, and Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne, The Misadventures of Seldovia Sam series has established itself as a successful, award-winning series that continues to grow.

This exciting series continues with Sam dreading the looming first day of school where he fears his annual back-to-school essay about his summer's activities will not be as impressive as the know-it-all Melody Chambers's. For an end-of-summer adventure, Sam goes blueberry picking with his mom and best friend, Billy. He learns the hard way about safety and respect for wildlife when he has a face-to-face encounter with a bear cub, its protective mom close behind. Heroic dog, Neptune saves the day as she protects her masters after they are chased back into their truck. Find out if this exciting turn of events will make Sam's essay a grand prize winner.
