Under a clear, sunny sky, early arrival spectator Nuts eagerly and excitedly began to fill the Grandstand: every other Misty Forest inhabitant followed. It was opening day for the First Annual Walnut Warrior Motocross Race. Anticipation electrified the air; cheering and shell clacking wafted over the track and into the Pits. Walnut Warriors were kick-starting their machines to slowly roll toward the line-up at the Starting Gate. Prior the start of the race, over the megaphone, Nick Nutley, the Announcer, boomed a fond Welcome Greeting to all and proceeded to discuss the racing rules and 'dicey' track conditions: steep hills, long high jumps, deep triple ruts, off-camber hairpin turns, and whoop-de-doos. As if that were not thrilling enough, there were several highly dangerous sections of track unrevealed to the spectators. . . these hazards would only be fully described as racers approached each peril or menace. Nutley secretly wondered if any riders would actually be able to finish the race. He solemnly reasoned any elsewhere but the courageous Walnut Warriors would have no chance. Riders braced, slightly hunched over their handlebars; engines screamed with clutch levers-in, front brakes held, and throttles wide-open – all waiting the last seconds before the Starting Gate dropped – no rider dared blink. Readers, emotionally exhausted, discover which Riders and bikes, if any, conquer all obstacles and cross the triple-jump Finish Line. They won't tell, will you?

Delightful and whimsical, The Walnut Warriors (Quest For The Lost Gold) takes young minds on a riveting adventure of good versus evil. Created by author and illustrator Lance L. Palmgren, this colorful work is the second in his Walnut Warriors Series.

Readers soon become champions of the fearsome but lovable Walnut Warriors that live in a secret place, deep within their Misty Forest. This time, in Book Two of the Trilogy within the 7-Book Series, readers will follow the Warriors on their first Secret Mission into a perilous battle with their long-time enemies. Several generations ago, the Bully Boulders (who eventually transformed themselves into the Naughty Nuggets) and their Stone King attacked the Walnut Warriors and carried away their gold. To regain the treasure that is rightfully theirs, the Warriors must locate and battle the thieves into submission. Readers will be thrilled to experience, firstly, the Warriors' successful search and then, the implementation of their carefully planned battle and capture strategies. Will good triumph over evil? Readers know, will you?

In this final (?)* volume, The Walnut Warriors® (In Outer Space), you will witness huge, roaring meteorite fireballs, falling from the sky and randomly careening into and throughout the deep Misty Forest. Each fireball lands with a boom and ignites a fire — the most dreaded enemy of the Walnut Warriors and their precious Walnut Trees. King Nut,IV, his faithful Warriors and the befriended CashShoes, which are known for their technical expertise and witty inventions, frantically work on a plan to determine the origin of the fireballs. The Warrior AstroNuts hope to find, in outer space, the menace that is creating life threatening meteor showers that rain down on their Misty Forest, starting alarming fires. They must figure a way to stop them, or it, before the entire forest burned – roasting all the nuts. Will the AstroNuts find the perpetrators, discovering who they are; better yet, what they are, and save the forest? In the Walnut Warriors series, Palmgren has written a unique saga that is essentially based on his actual life experiences. The storyline’s premise not only involves the proverbial triumph of good over evil but also teaches the readers tolerance, respect and the value of character differences—sociologically, physically, and intellectually. *(Psssssst! Author/Illustrator Lance L. Palmgren whispers that, as works in progress, he currently has 3 more Walnut Warriors® stories on his drawing board: The Walnut Warriors® Meet Bigfoot; The Walnut Warriors® Rock Band; and, The Walnut Warriors® Deep Sea Dive. Watch for them in 2014 along with his anticipated Walnut Warriors® Floor Game and collectible Action Figures.)
