Harry Potter fans unite! John Stephens first of three books is a nail biting adventure for siblings Kate, Michael, and Emma. It seems that there are plenty of orphaned children stories, but this one cleverly uses time travel. A huge fan of fantasy, I am always eager to find the magic that I had discovered with Harry Potter. While it is too early to tell, I will most definitely be reading the next books.
If you liked the good v. evil of Harry Potter’s world, then you will find more of that here. The Queen and her “animals” certainly are not kitty cats and there is no shortage of bad creatures. The children are not unstoppable and each face challenges that they don’t always win. I have posted the book trailer below, but must say that it is not my favorite. My hope is that some of my students will be motivated to create one themselves!
