Free Ebook - The Bird Whisperer - Mattie Saunders Series - Book 3

The BIRD WHISPERER - Mattie Saunders Series - Book 3

Save a bird. Save the world. Save your soul.

 

Free ‘til Jan. 3 at

https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B003DS6LEU

 

 

“A very entertaining story with plenty of action and a strong female main character.”

 

“The storyline is very good and contains several subplots.”

 

“All the characters “gets” are realistic”.

 

“A highly recommended novella that was very enjoyable.”

 

Oiled seabirds

Two freighters have collided in the harbour. One has a ruptured fuel tank and is spilling toxic oil onto the beach. Seabirds are mired in this toxic muck.

The Saunders Exotic Bird Sanctuary is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of exotic birds. A seagull is hardly exotic but it’s still a bird and Mattie loves birds.

She’s never rehabilitated an oiled bird. It’s more involved than just giving them a bath in dish detergent–a lot more.

 She might as well learn how since there’s likely to be more of them.

The reporters want to do know if Mattie supports a ban against more oil pipelines? More pipelines mean more oil that has to be shipped which amounts to an increase in oil tanker traffic in local waters.

Mattie supports whatever is good for the birds.

Does she have to take a stand on bigger issues to have any hope of resolving the smaller ones?

Do you?

LOVING THE TERRORIST
Free ‘til Jan. 3 at
 
Miriam is forty and frustrated.
In an attempt to enhance her living-just-to-breathe life she joins some neighbours protesting a highway bypass that will destroy Eagleridge Bluffs. Not only is the Bluffs her special sanctuary, they’re also the beautiful home of rare and endangered plants and animals.
The protest gains the support of environmental organizations including the attention of a group of eco-radicals lead by an enigmatic younger man named Zaahir.
Miriam is mesmerized by this charismatic leader and sees him as someone that can save her as well as the Bluffs. But is Zaahir just using Miriam to help him further his radical environmental agenda?
As legal channels fail and civil disobedience falters, Miriam is seduced into the murky world of eco-terrorism.

Social Distancing, Quarantined or just staying home because of #COVID19? Here's a free ebook to pass help the time.
 
 
The Local Rag – News to Die For.
 
 
 
 
Jim Mitchell is a journalist and the publisher and editor of a community newspaper, The Sentinel.
 
He gave up a career with big media because he couldn't justify their choice of what to cover, couldn't tolerate the way they edited his stories, and would not be implicit in misleading the public to benefit some hidden corporate agenda.
 
When he bought The Sentinel, he thought all that would end. Being the owner of "the local rag," he could select the stories, edit the copy, and make sure the interests of the community were served.
 
He would print the truth - no slant, no bias, no spin, and he'd make a living doing it.
 
He was wrong.
 
Right from the beginning, Jim's brand of reportage rankles some powerful people, people who pay his bills. Then there's the new competitor, a multinational media conglomerate that's expanding its generic community newspaper format into The Sentinel's market area.
 
Soon it's a struggle for The Sentinel to make a profit and for Jim to keep true to his uncompromising ethics.
 
When his best friend, Anthony Bravaro decides to run for mayor Jim hopes he'll be an honest politician.
 
Hope turns to dismay as Jim watches the quest for power turn a good man bad. Tony's campaign tests Jim's professional objectivity and personal integrity.
 
When Jim confronts his friend with damaging information that could end his run for public office, he finds out how far Tony's prepared to go to win the mayor's seat - farther than he could ever have imagined.

BEDTIME FOR SWEET CREATURES by NIKKI GRIMES
Bedtime for Sweet Creatures - Nikki Grimes,Elizabeth Zunon

BEDTIME FOR SWEET CREATURES

Nikki Grimes, author

Elizabeth Zunon, illustrator

Hardcover, 32 pages

Published January 14th, 2020 by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky  

ISBN: 1492638323 (ISBN13: 9781492638322)

 

Such a treat! A beautifully illustrated hardcover book by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Elizabeth Zunon. Zunon's illustrations use brilliant colors that lift right off the page. Her sweet creature's expressions are beautifully done. Grime's mommy is admirably calm and patient, and her sweet creature is full of spirit. The language used is alive, active and strong. The story and the illustrations perform well together, making Grimes and Zunon a talented team.

***Thanks to Nikki Grimes, Author, Elizabeth Zunon, illustrator, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky and Multicultural Children's Book Day for the opportunity to read and review this book. I won this through an MCBD giveaway.***
