Progressive Rising Phoenix Press is an innovative independent publisher.

    AUSTIN, TX, July 26, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Legend of the Forest Beast, the third novel by award-winning children's book author Don M. Winn, is now available. The anticipated third installment to The Sir Kaye series--Winn's award-winning collection for middle readers, features a twelve-year-old knight that captivates young readers with its complex characters and beautiful illustrations.

Continuing the saga of Sir Kaye, this fast-paced adventure has best friends Kaye, Reggie, Beau and their community worried for the safety of the beloved tutor, Alchir. Their search for Alchir leads the boys to a manor house at the edge of a dark forest where nothing is what it seems. A legend of a deadly forest beast keeps the nearby citizens living in fear, but is the beast real, or are the mysterious events in the area the result of something else entirely? Read this fun adventure, highlighting bravery, humility, all-important aspects of success and friendship, to find out!

Revealing new depths to familiar characters, Legend of the Forest Beast continues to add to the richness of the series. Eager to make a name for himself, Kaye struggles to keep his sight on accomplishing his mission and learns to sacrifice his pride for the good of those around him. And it's Kaye's best friend Reggie's quick thinking that saves Kaye from a deadly situation without adding more violence to a volatile situation. The story also introduces Layla, a fiery and outspoken girl whose intelligence and wit are often mistaken for rudeness. However, through her complex character, young readers learn not to judge people too quickly and to try to see what really motivates a person to act the way they do. Legend of the Forest Beast is a story about looking beneath the surface of others, oneself, and learning to focus on what's most important.

About Author Don M. Winn

Don Winn is the award-winning author of the middle-grade chapter books The Knighting of Sir Kaye, and The Lost Castle Treasure. Additionally he has written ten award-winning children's picture books, including Superhero; Space Cop Zack, Protector of the Galaxy; The Higgledy-Piggledy Pigeon; Twitch the Squirrel and the Forbidden Bridge; and Shelby the Cat.

Winn has been writing for over 20 years. His whimsical poetry and prose served as a natural springboard for his transition to writing children's picture books. He enjoys speaking with children on school visits and at the student's request, he began writing books for older readers. This resulted in the launch of the Sir Kaye adventure series.
