Nikki Landry is at it again! She’s found the truth behind The Legend of Ghost Dog Island, foiled The Curse at Pirate’s Cove and now, in this third installment, launching September 17th, 2016, she’s going to find The Secret in Mossy Swamp.
Rita Monette is both author and illustrator of this middle grade series about legends in the Louisiana bayou. Having lived there herself as a young girl, she captures the voice of 10-year old Nikki Landry perfectly and takes you to a world of swampy bayous, houseboats, and mysterious legends. This time, Nikki is going head to head with the legend of the dreaded Rougarou.
It’s going to be an awesome adventure, but you don’t need to take my word for it. Here’s the cover and blurb:
The Secret in Mossy Swamp by Rita Monette
Things are never what they seem… in a foggy Louisiana swamp
Living in a tiny houseboat, Nikki is stuck with sharing a room with her little brother, Jesse, who does what little brothers do best…torture their sisters. Fed up, she decides to build a place of her own…a tree house where no boys are allowed. Meanwhile, something strange is happening on Bayou Platte. Things and people are coming up missing…and little stick dolls covered in moss, known locally as “signs” from the legendary Rougarou, are showing up in their place.
Is the Rougarou really to blame? Can Nikki get to the bottom of the mystery before things get worse? Find out in this third installment of the Nikki Landry Swamp Legends Series!
This Middle Grade Adventure is expected to launch September 17th, 2016!
