SWITZERLAND FOR KIDS – PAPERBACK
Cuckoo Clock Secrets in Switzerland– Book 1 in the CASE OF ADVENTURE Travel Series.
“There was a cracking noise and the crumbling of mortar. Rome put his Swiss army knife to work and carefully ran it around the edge of the stone, scraping away the plaster. He signalled to Ren, who pulled harder. Suddenly the whole stone came away from the wall. Together, they slid it out and gazed at the gaping hole that was left behind.”
Travel with Serenity, Rome, Jake, Libby and Tiffany as they discover an ancient coin and a mystery connected with a cuckoo clock which takes them to the beautiful land of Switzerland. In their quest to solve the puzzle they unearth some fascinating history and recover a lost fortune!
This engaging living book touches on church history during the time of the reformation and takes its readers on a tour of Switzerland while solving the mystery of the Cuckoo Clock.
