The Riddle of Penncroft Farm:

Videos & Audios

 

Video Read-Alouds

 

Below are links to videos of me reading The Riddle of Penncroft Farm. I divided long chapters into two parts so that each video is around 10 minutes long. 

 

P.S. There is no "official" audiobook of this story. I may get around to recording the rest of it, in which case I will post it here.

Geordie at the Battle of Brandywine

 

 

During the 2020-1 Pandemic, I decided to mark the anniversary of the Battle of Brandywine (September 11) by making a video recording of Geordie's experience that day. Some of this overlaps with the chapter recordings I made.

 

I was proud to learn that during one commemoration of the battle there, a play was performed at Birmingham Meetinghouse, right on the battlefield, of this part of my story.

Spoiler Alert! Don't watch until you have finished chapter 5!

Finding the Riddle: THE RIDDLE OF PENNCROFT FARM from Dorothea Jensen on Vimeo.

This might be my favorite part of this story, because it is the excerpt that won the middle grade division of the children's literature manuscript competition at The Loft, a writers' organization in Minneapolis. This honor helped get it published later by Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich.

Lars finds out that when he was little, he once pulled in the latchstring and stranded Aunt Cass outside. Here's a little video showing how a latchstring works.
