Item Description...
Jimmy and Johnny Burns don't go out hunting adventure. They don't have to. Hair-raising scrapes lie in wait for them at every twist of their ordinary lives. The siblings encounter a scar-faced man whose dirty, old car pulls a mysterious trailer. A pesky summer visitor arrives at their home intent on causing trouble. A sailboat outing turns scary and makes for a power-packed rescue. Along the way, these gutsy youngsters from a small, Southern town learn about wise choices, courage, overcoming obstacles, and family values that underlie their captivating exploits. School-aged readers will thank David deGruy for spinning these cliff-hanging yarns, while parents and educators will appreciate the positive moral and spiritual values presented in a style that refreshes and entertains. David V. deGruy, Sr., of Mobile, AL, first told these stories as entertainment for his young son. He has been a soldier, salesman, pharmacist, consultant and administrator. Now in retirement he is trying his hand at something he has always wanted to be--an author. Young people as well as the young at heart will enjoy these charming stories.

Quality Time With Children  Nov 4, 2003
If you are looking for some exciting stories for children intertwined with positive spiritual and moral values then look no further than "AS THE SPARKS FLY UPWARDS". As a father and a youth minister, I appreciate David deGruy's writing style that captivates children in terms they can easily understand.

In addition, the prayers at the end of each chapter reinforce our need to pursue our Heavenly Father for wisdom and strength to face all circumstances in life. I welcome this book as a way to spend fun quality time with your children or grandchildren.

Exciting Stories for Children  Aug 22, 2003
'AS THE SPARKS FLY UPWARD' is an excellent addition to any family library. The stories present very good lessons in values and can be easily read by youngsters. Too many of our children are growing up in an environment of uncertainty, in single parent homes, most likely in a state of poverty, and in many cases live with violence on a daily basis. The long range forecast by national researches and pollsters, tell us that by the year 2010 we can expect an enormous increase in juvenile 'super' predators unless we do more now to combat this very serious problem. 'AS THE SPARKS FLY UPWARD' is another excellent way to teach family values and a belief in God and patriotism, that are the cornerstones, not only of our society but of the Boy Scout movement. I think this book, along with other supplemental programs, can be powerful tools in helping a young person face an ever growing array of decisions from their choice of friends and role models to their career path. This book is definitely a great way to teach value and ethics.
A Must Have Book  Aug 8, 2003
I planned to read only a few pages at first, but I could not stop until I had read the entire book! It is so easy to read, very, very interesting, and full of surprises. It reminded me of my young boyhood days and the Hardy Boys series. As an adult, I enjoyed the book as though I was still a young boy. Anyone can be entertained, encouraged, and grow spiritually by reading these stories.
There are many examples in the book that 'point boys in the right directions'. One in the first story teaches a boy to keep his word, even if he really doesn't understand all the circumstances. In the second story, you realize that someone whom you have a reason to dislike, can become a 'Gem' instead of a 'Jerk'. In the third story, there is help when you look up.
As a Sunday School teacher and Bible student for many years, I recognize the need to keep boys involved. We are to let their imaginations grow, and at the same time, teach them strong lessons about `what is the right thing to do'. The author has accomplished that in 'AS THE SPARKS FLY UPWARD'.
