March of the Blue Moon


Series:  The Montgomery School Kids
                                                        Book Four  March of the Blue Moon


Eleven-year-old New York City boy Nestor Ramirez embarks on a journey to Alaska,  intending to bring his father back home after an unsuccessful attempt at striking it rich. With his friend Kwan Min Park in tow, Nestor’s days as class clown are over as he discovers positive role models in unlikely places while learning about Alaska and South Korean cultures, and a myriad of science and social studies facts. Readers will laugh as they learn while being virtually introduced to the sights and sounds of our 49th state.

On the night of the full moon, while toasting marshmallows and listening to scary stories, Nestor senses that changes are coming and redirects his attitude. “I also learned some important things this week. it’s all about GOALSGo Out And Learn Something. Stop wasting time. Make a plan. Then do it. Yeah. It’s that simple.”

Nestor visits the Alaska Aviation Museum, Earthquake Park, Anchorage Museum, Alaska Native Heritage Center, Mendenhall Glacier, and Denali National Park. Nestor enjoys a number of first time experiences: dog mushing, kayaking, and snowshoeing. He learns about Native Alaska culture, the North Pole, the Arctic Circle, arctic dinosaurs, the Alaska Triangle, the Gold Rushes, the Alaska Pipeline, natural and man-made disasters, the Aurora Borealis, the Iditarod  and Lance Mackey, one of the Iditarod’s greatest champions.

Readers won’t stop laughing over Nestor’s exaggerated fear of wolves, bears, sea otters, and the Shape Shifters of the Shinulaktup.

Nestor is surprised at how much growing up he has done in one week. When Kwan Min tells him how much he likes the new Nestor, he responds, “You know something, Kwan Min? So do I.”
