A Wonderful Christmas Gift!

by Pa Rock

I received a very special Christmas gift - something that I will treasure always. It is a book entitled The UFO Battle, and it was written and illustrated by my grandson, Boone Macy. Boone created this science fiction masterpiece as a part of the Young Author's Program at his school, and then his Dad had it professionally bound and helped Boone to send me a copy. It came as quite a surprise for his proud grandpa!

This story is about a retired army general living in Florida who is captured and kidnapped by aliens. The FBI tries to keep the kidnapping a secret, but the general's neighbor who runs a laundry mat gets involved and lets the secret out. The neighbor himself is soon confronted by aliens, and...well, if you want to know more you will have to wait until it hits your local bookstore! I will give you this morsel, though - it is a very exciting plot!

Boone, Pa Rock is very proud of you - and I am proud of your Dad, too!

Much love!

What an awesome present! Sounds like you have a new author in the family...I remember helping my oldest son bind his creation for Young Authors many years ago. His book was titled "Wanna Buy My Sister?" The focus was on how his little sister was so annoying but still got so much of everyone's attention - Mom, Dad, grandmas...thanks for strirring up some fond memories...Merry Christmas!
