Trafford Publishing Presents: ‘Lexi and Hippocrates Find Trouble at the Olympics’
NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ — “Lexi and Hippocrates Find Trouble at the Olympics” (published by Trafford Publishing), by teacher/author Marian Keen, is released just in time for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
This delightful children’s historical fiction is written through the eyes of Alexander Catt II, (aka Lexi) as he narrates his “meowmoirs” about adventures with famous people. In this “tail,” Lexi meets Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, and travels with him to watch their mutual friend Theo compete in the Olympic Games around 400 B.C.
Written at the Grade 4 level, “Lexi and Hippocrates Find Trouble at the Olympics” will appeal to all ages.
“Children like the idea of experiencing a story narrated by a cat,” explains Marian Keen. “This makes learning history most enjoyable, as the kids can relate to Lexi’s humor and point of view. And of course adults like the whimsical humor.”
As the main competition unfolds in the ancient coliseum, Lexi competes in his own races with his rival, a hound named Cerberos. Lexi, with a pompous and towering ego, proves to be fair-minded and lovable as he learns the hard way to be a good sport.
At a critical point in the human Olympics, the twitch in Lexi’s tail warns him of trouble. His clever brain and sensitive nose save his friends and help Hippocrates ensure that cheaters pay while fair play wins the day.
One in a growing series of adventures with Lexi, “Lexi and Hippocrates Find Trouble at the Olympics” is being enjoyed in classrooms throughout Vancouver, host city for the 2010 Winter Olympics. An added bonus for the schools — a Teacher’s Guide is available on the author’s website http://megsbooks.wordpress.com.
