Trying to turn some poetry into music is not that easy for me.

I was thinking about your kid's adventure story this morning and wanted to let you know that I see it as a whole series. An updated Bobbsy twins but I'd make the main characters siblings--a boy and girl--in the 10-12 year old range. They were smart city kids moved to the country by their parents, and they feel out of sorts. Below the floor in the closet, they find an entrance to a cave. They carry in their glow-in-the-dark super soaker guns (which gets them in trouble later on because they can be seen in the dark) Having two characters lets you show the rivalry and pithy dialog. It allows for strengths of one and not the other and leads them from insecure kids to confident young people. Don't forget to let me know if you post something!

Eddie Z: You are as bad as my sister who keeps harassing me to go the whole novel thing. I will let you know which way I go.
