Lucas and nelly
by Stanley Lombardo
In a lighthearted departure from his alternative-history series, THE CROSSTIME ADVENTURES OF CARTER PAXTON, Medievalist Stanley Lombardo offers a children's fantasy about a young boy who befriends a lonely lake serpent and the adventures they share. Future books in the series include "Lucas and Nellie: To Say Nothing of the Moose," "Lucas, Nellie, and the Pelicans," and "Lucas, Nellie, and Nessie." Illustrations are contributed by various professional and amateur artists, including 3rd and 4th-grade Gifted and Talented students.
