Four delightful stories make up this children's book, each one based upon a woman's grandchildren and each one filled with exciting adventures, faraway places and authentic characters. Marion Gillcrist, or "Oma" as she is known to her grandchildren, uses her vivid imagination to put her grandchildren in the most unusual places. "Ransom" takes Marie and Erin to Colorado where they survive not only a kidnapping, but the Colorado wilderness. Hanna and Joe go in search of a pirate's treasure and break a secret code in "The Piece of Eight"; Liam, Jacob, Thomas, Lily and Olivia explore a haunted house in Rhode Island in "The Watson Place"; and Ellie, Georgia, Danny and Isabel rescue King Richard the Lion Heart from a dungeon in Austria in "Coeur de Lion." Follow the adventures of these irrepressible and enchanting children as they use their wits and wisdom to battle buccaneers, bandits, and medieval adversaries. Gillcrist expertly captures childlike wonder and excitement with history and valuable life lessons. Adventures of My Grandchildren will become a permanent part of the family library and a book that you and your children will read time and time again. Marion Gillcrist is the mother of 10 children, grandmother of 36, and great-grandmother of 6. Mrs. Gillcrist did advanced work in the Humanities field of Child Development in the states and lived in Austria for 20 years where she did extensive seminal research regarding male teenagers, and established a home and educational program to assist young Polish refugees. She lives with her husband in Boca Raton, Florida. Publisher's website: www.eloquentbooks.com/AdventuresofMyGrandchildren.html
