Off to Camp and Discovering Art by Ann T. Bugg

Book Nerd Excerpt

Ann T. Bugg is the Queen of her castle in southern Minnesota where she lives with her Knight in shining armor (who has come to her rescue more than once) and her own little Princess Valerie. The pets in her magical kingdom come in all shapes and sizes, as do all the critters that make their way out of the enchanted forest. Horseback riding, long walks with her dogs (Otter & Dottie pictured above) and embroidering are on her list of hobbies, but writing will always be her first love.

Ann also writes Women's Fiction under the name June Kramin.

Valerie and Samantha are disappointed that their schedules were not allowing them to spend a week together this summer like they have done every year since they were young. Their parents are able to plan a weekend camping trip towards the end of summer. The girls are happy for the visit, but sad to think they can’t go through the mirror this year on another adventure. They discover the magic is not only within the mirror, but within themselves when they are together. Merlin the magician shows up to take them on their quest to help Arthur find his true identity and his place in Camelot.


The girls stood by the canoe, keeping their attention to the hill, anxious for Val’s dad’s return. Suddenly, the sky became dark and the clouds rolled in fast. They were beginning to wonder if a storm would be coming after all. They checked the weather this morning and it was supposed to be beautiful the whole week. Off to the distance, Val caught sight of something flying. She got excited thinking it was an eagle but as it got closer, her jaw dropped.

“Ummmm, Sam,” she stammered.


“Would you look at that and please tell me I am out of my mind?” She pointed in the direction of the strange creature.

“You know how much I enjoy telling you – you are outta your mind, Va—” Samantha stopped mid-word as she looked to the sky. “Holy smokes! Tell me I am not seeing that!”

“I’d be lying if I said I wish I could. It’s a dragon all right, Sam, and it’s heading our way!”

It’s time for Samantha’s summer visit again. Both she and Val are anxious to see if they will take another magical journey through the mirror. After learning of a problem with one of the horses, Odette makes her appearance and tells the girls it’s up to them to help him.

What Charlie needs is something that can only be found in their magical land. It can’t be given to them; they have to solves riddles and discover the answers themselves. A family of elves guides them, but even elf powers are limited when it comes to what stands between the girls and what they seek.

Trolls and unicorns were everything they imagined and more, but rescuing Rapunzel from her tower was an added bonus they never saw coming.
