WHERE IN THE WORLD BLOGFEST


I am so excited today to host Author Sherry Ellis on her blogfest for her latest book Bubba and Squirt's Big Dig to China. Even the title sounds exciting. Welcome, Sherry.


Where in the World Blogfest



Prompt: If you could go through the Earth and end up in another country, where would you go?

I may be weird, but there's not any country I can think of that I'd like to visit. You know what I would like to do? Dig a hole back in time, when ladies wore those lovely long dresses. Think  Scarlet O'Hara, Gone With the Wind. I know they're not practical, hot in summer, easy to trip over, and imagine keeping them clean. But they fascinate me. And living on a plantation might be neat. And then dig another hole back even farther in time.  Anyone want to go with me?

BLURB: Squirt doesn’t believe Bubba can dig a hole to China. But when the hole swallows them, the kids find themselves in Xi’an, China, surrounded by Terracotta Warriors.

It gets worse when the ghost of the first emperor of China appears. He tells them they can’t go home until they find his missing pi. The kids don’t know where to begin until they meet a girl and her grandmother who promise to help find the pendant.

Soon they realize they are being followed. And they are no closer to finding the missing pi. Will Bubba and Squirt ever make it back home?

  2. If you could wear one where it wasn't hot and humid you might be all right.

    1. Yes, Alex. I think it would be fun for a party or like when I did book signings for my Civil War novel and wore a dress like this. Daily it would get old.

  3. I'm not sure how far back I'd want to go. I like my creature comforts.

    1. There's a lot to be said for modern days, Diane, like air conditioning, automobiles, refrigerators, and such. OH, and bathrooms. I remember my grandparents' outhouse. Not fun.

  4. Thank you so much for participating in the blog fest! Going back in time would be interesting. So much has changed over the years. I don't think I would want to go back and see dinosaurs, though!

    1. Thank you for letting me be a part of your blog fest, Sherry. Your story sounds like fun. I'm looking forward to reading it. Things have changed over the years. No, I'm with you. Not crazy about dinosaurs. Happy with the present. I can already see changes in education from the years I taught and today. The future, who knows. Have a great blog fest.

  5. Would be neat to go back, as long as one could get back to the present. I'll leave the dresses to you though.

    1. I agree, Pat. The traveling back would be interesting, but I like the present best. Yeah, I can see why you might not care for the dresses. Have a great evening.

    1. LOL! I would welcome her company. I know I'd miss the modern day conveniences, but the early times fascinate me. I'm sure I'd be ready to return to the present when the temperature hit 100 degrees.
