9781937083007: Bruce and the Road to Courage (The Adventures of Bruce and Friends) (Volume 1)

With courage, there's always hope.
 
Bullied by the other caterpillars because he's afraid of heights and terrified to transform into a butterfly, Bruce runs away. On the road, he finds better friends who understand him, but when Angie is abducted by bats, Bruce is again frozen with fear.
 
Shamed by his own cowardice, Bruce vows to rescue her. With the help of his new friends, he braves the cave. But can one caterpillar, a mockingbird, a jumping spider, and an aging firefly prevail against Stang, the bats' tyrannical leader?

About the Author:

Gale Leach is an award-winning author who had a number of different careers, including teacher, gift shop buyer, craft wholesaler, and American Sign Language interpreter, before she started her own business doing technical writing and editing for biotechnology companies. She ran that company successfully for 20 years, until her husband suggested she retire early. She didn't think twice, but she never really retired.      After moving to Arizona, Gale fell in love with pickleball, a wonderful sport with a silly name. She wrote her first book, The Art of Pickleball, in 2005, and it went on to win the Arizona Book Award in its class (Recreation/Sports). The second edition was published in 2008. In 2011, Gale finished her first novel, Bruce and the Road to Courage, a heroic fantasy for children. The book received excellent reviews, and she added three more to the series ("Bruce and Friends"). A fifth book is scheduled. She's currently at work on a new young adult fantasy series called The Rift, involving technology and magic, multiple worlds, and creatures you only thought were mythological.     To learn more, visit Gale's website (galeleach.com), where you can learn more about her work in progress, read her blog, and subscribe to social media on Facebook and Twitter. Gale lives in Sun City West, Arizona, with her husband, two dogs, and one cat.

Review:

Bruce and the Road to Courage is a charming novel following caterpillar Bruce who rejects his destiny as a butterfly partly out of a fear of heights and partly out of the desire to forge his own path. A moving story of standing up for oneself even under mocking, Bruce and the Road to Courage has a strong message for young readers who are just about to embrace novel-style books. --James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review

I really liked this book. It was an almost perfect storm of compelling characters, good storytelling ... I really liked the way the story unfolded in a very unique author voice, and I enjoyed the thread of a deeper story that ran through it. There are things to be learned from Bruce's journey, lessons from which kids will benefit greatly. And the excitement of the adventure will keep them reading. Not for nothing, the metaphoric impact will not be lost on adult readers either. --Judge, 19th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Awards

I began reading Bruce and the Road to Courage to three fifth grade classes on the first day of school. All 97 students were instantly transfixed by the characters and literally begged for one more chapter each day. The characters and their struggles were completely real to the children. They championed for Bruce during his journey to defeat the evil Stang. Children laughed, cried, hoped, and cheered throughout the story. Most importantly, this book engaged every student, even the most reluctant reader, and proved to be THE BOOK to turn them on to the joys of reading. I cannot count the teachable moments that occurred in the reading of this book--rich language, descriptive prose, complex plots, social injustice, the power of friendship, self worth - truly a classic story. Students are still talking about it and writing about Bruce and the Road to Courage, their number one favorite book. This book is a teacher's dream come true! --Rebecca Valbuena, Elementary School Teacher
