- DescriptionIn a small town in Adelphi, Maryland, a group of young boys have stumbled on a mysterious question: Just who is the old man who lives in the woods? The answer turns out to be a lot more fun than they could have imagined. In Jimmy Creswell's The Adelphi Boys Adventure Series: The Mysterious Mr. McComb-the first installment of his new n-fiction series for children ages five to ten years old-the author recalls his own lively past with entertaining stories of years gone by, peppered with a few lessons along the way. When the neighborhood kids venture into the woods, they happen upon a very curious individual by the name of Mr. McComb. What they come to learn is that he is a decorated hero from World War I. Whenever Mr. McComb is around, he takes the time to teach the boys about living in harmony with the forest while imparting sage advice garnered over a lifetime. Fun-loving and action-packed, The Adelphi Boys Adventure Series: The Mysterious Mr. McComb shares the simple joys of childhood adventures, and how they can be used to realize dreams. It's certain to resonate with children everywhere, and inspire them to look at their elders with new respect and admiration.
