The Time of The Fireflies by Kimberly Griffith, Book Trailer Reveal

I'm so thrilled to be revealing Kimberly Griffiths Little's book trailer for her The TIME of The FIREFLIES. This is a book I'm looking forward to featuring soon here on Mundie Kids. Before you check out the trailer, here's a little bit about her book:



When Larissa Renaud starts receiving eerie phone calls on a disconnected old phone in her family's antique shop, she knows she's in for a strange summer. A series of clues leads her to the muddy river banks, where clouds of fireflies dance among the cypress knees and cattails each evening at twilight. The fireflies are beautiful and mysterious, and they take her on a magical journey through time, where Larissa learns secrets about her family's tragic past -- deadly, curse-ridden secrets that could harm the future of her family as she knows it. It soon becomes clear that it is up to Larissa to prevent history from repeating itself and a fatal tragedy from striking the people she loves.

Critically acclaimed author Kimberley Griffiths Little spins a thrilling tale filled with family secrets, haunting mystery, and dangerous adventure in the story of one girl's race to unravel the curse that has haunted her family for generations. (Synopsis from Scholastic Press)

Professional Reviews for The TIME of The FIREFLIES: 


“Haunting, well-constructed tale . . . A plot filled with suspense, adventure, and mystery.  Perfect choice for lovers of ghost stories, historical fiction, or just a good yarn.”
—School Library Journal

“Little’s strengths lie in building a strong sense of the history of a place, its inhabitants, and how one can greatly affect the other. A satisfyingly creepy mystery, wrapped up in the bonds of family.” —Publisher’s Weekly 

“Suspense builds quickly and doesn’t falter . . . Larissa’s first-person narration is fresh and engaging, and the richly evoked south Louisiana setting serves to ground this ethereal tale in a real time and place while contributing to the mysterious mood it requires. —Kirkus Reviews

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
