The Great Race to Sycamore Street
by J. Samia Mair
This topsy turvy adventure on Sycamore Street sees brother and sister Hude and Amani arrive in Fairfax County, Maryland with one thought: it was going to be a long, boring summer in the country. They couldn't be more wrong.
With Grandma Hana's new neighbour planning to pull down her prized peach tree and a gang, led by the archer Bobby, marshaling the local lake, Hude and Amani have a hard time getting any peace. In this warm and comical story, find out how, under the watchful eyes of Grandma Hana, Hude and Amani plan to save the peach tree and beat Bobby at his own game before leaving Sycamore Street behind.
