Storybox Playlist: Stories of Adventure

This week we are launching the newest installment to the Windward Ho! collection. This has got us all excited and ready for a new adventure. In honor of adventure, I've rounded up some of our best adventure stories, including some with pirates.

Log into your Sparkle Account to listen.

Pirates (from the Martin & Sylvia Series)

“Yo ho ho” and “Shiver me timbers!” are not what is usually heard on Town Lake during Lake Days, but this year Pirates have invaded the event, complete with head scarves, gnarly beards, and thick pirate accents. Could that be Martin in the black pirate’s hat? Could that be Sylvia at the helm of the pirate canoe? Could that be Daddy leading them to invade a friend’s sailboat and attempt to steal some "booty"? Listen and find out.

Paddling to Treasure Island (from the Martin & Sylvia: More Adventures! Series)

When Daddy suggests they paddle to "Luck Island" which had recently been made into a public park, brother and sister are at once excited and filled with questions: "Does anyone live there?" "What is on the island?" "Will there be pirate treasure?" They find out that the island does indeed have treasure, but not at all the kind they were expecting.

Twixt the Cracks (from The Willowbee Tree Series)

It is the middle of summer vacation and Piper is getting tired of the same old things — same yard, same room, same street, and same park. When the hole in the willow tree starts to glow, she hopes for an exciting adventure but is disappointed when they step out onto the rocky landscape of the Burren in Ireland. But then a lark leads them through an meditative exercise that shows them the hidden magic between the cracks.

Camouflage (from Martin & Sylvia's Nature School Series)

Brother and sister’s favorite game — no matter the time of day or time of year — is a game where you blend into your surroundings and try not to be seen. Martin is usually the master of this game, but when Sylvia learns a trick at Nature School, she becomes “The Invisible Girl.”

Periwinkle's Parrot (from the Windward Ho! Collection)

Periwinkle "Wink" Mackenzie excitedly waits to purchase the next book in her favorite series, The Windward Chronicles, early on the morning of its release. She never suspects that receiving the new book will be only the beginning of an unforeseen adventure.
