Tales of the Time Dragon

   When my daughter was small, she was learning to read little paperbacks with simple words but little in the way of story or any real content. I wanted to do something more, so I created a series of books using only a few sentences per page and involving a red dragon who pulls the kids into the computer and roams history through the internet.
  The first book introduces Red, the Time Dragon, and we chose the Middle Ages to start because, well, he's a dragon!  I try to show as much or more information with the pictures as with the story.

    The second book in the series, "Racing the Waves", is the incredible story of the clipper ship Flying Cloud, navigated by Eleanor Creesy. It was unheard of to have a woman navigator at that time. Ellen set the world speed record from NY to San Francisco in 1851 and again in 1853. It stood unbroken by sail for 138 years.  Tales of the Time Dragon comes in both a library edition and a paperback version, set at $3.99.

Red's an internet guide, only instead of you being on the outside with a keyboard, he carries you right through the screen into his world of history.

I laid the story out starting with a trip through a dark medievil forest, where just about everything in Harry Potter originates. Then Red takes Lilly and Joe through a farm village, a walled town, and past a cathedral.

Sir Vile is a not-so-good knight, oppressing the peasants in his feifdom... and Red toasts him, to to the delight of the peasants. The inequities of the Monarchy and Feudal Systems sparked the Enlightenment and the concept of the rights of man. This in turn, led directly to the American Revolution...

Two years later, Eleanor and her husband, Captain Josiah Perkins Creesy, broke their own record. Their new speed record from New York to San Fransisco by sail stood for 138 years. The Creesy's sailed the Flying Cloud all over the world.
