I'm posting my query letter as part of a blogfest. It's late blah blah blah.
So here it is. First book/First query.
Dear Mr./Mrs. Agent Dude(tte),
Fire drills stink. When Pete, a student at Lee Springs Elementary, stays in the bathroom during the monthly forced-march-to-the-blacktop, he finds himself smashed against the wall at five G’s as his whole school rockets into space.
At first the alien teachers are horrified to learn a student has discovered their secret, but they have bigger problems: a satellite caught a picture of the school, forcing them to launch into orbit to protect the hologram that has kept their secret hidden for so long.
Unless Pete and an alien third-grader named Becca can walk in space to disable that satellite, the school’s secret will be uncovered, and the teachers will have to head for their home planets--with Pete on board!
SPACE SCHOOL is a 5,500 word chapter book, aimed at children grades 2-4, that follows Pete on his journey into the Earth’s orbit. This book is a stand alone with series potential.
My background is in education. I taught both first and second grade for a total of five years. I am a member of the SCBWI.Thank you for your time and consideration.
Also I won a signed copy of
by C.S. Lakin, so that's cool.
