Adventures with Ragweed

By Linda Lou Crosby

Genre: YA, Short Stories, Adventure


Adventures with Ragweed is a collection of humorous short stories filled with adventure and family themes. Ragweed is a tribute to the whimsical part of each of us. Follow this young teen and her best friend, Marney as they travel to Mexico for a fishing trip where the family is to shoot a pilot for a television show instead find themselves in an unexpected sea storm. Laugh out loud as Ragweed takes on the tennis elite at the country club or attempts to rearrange their perfectly cut lawns. Always one to learn new things, this young freckled face gal with the unruly blonde hair builds a float, rides a horse and grows a garden. Each task done with her own unique vies of the world. These stories are meant to entertain. It's difficult to narrow it down to one specific genre as the book is a collection of short stories suitable for young adults as well as for an older crowd with a sense of humor. Family Relationships, Friendships, Essays and Humor are categories all presented within the pages of this book. May you enjoy each tale as much as Ragweed enjoyed living the adventures.


Linda Lou Crosby is a video producer, storyteller and former professional athlete. Like Ragweed, she has a unique approach to life. Ragweed is a part of herself she wanted to share with others. Linda Lou has a great sense of humor and likes to laugh and make others laugh too.

She currently lives with her husband in Montana and California where on clear days you can find her fishing, hunting or hiking.



Adventures with Ragweed is a book about the many adventures of a young girl, Ragweed. She lives with her two wealthy parents and always seems to end up in some pretty sticky situations. Ragweed is the type of girl who constantly has you laughing or surprised at every turn of the page.

I enjoyed reading the Adventures with Ragweed, mainly because it reminds me of classics, like Ramona and Beezus or Junie B. Jones. My favorite adventure that Ragweed experienced was Ragweed goes to Mexico because it just has you laughing at the situation that her family faced after all the trouble they have already been through. Overall Adventures with Ragweed was a very enjoyable and entertaining read and I recommend it for all ages.
