Welcome to another product review here at Createyou86. I love to read, and If your child is in middle school, and they loved Percy Jackson, or Harry Potter, and no matter boy or girl they will love The League and The Lantern. This book has been one of the most successful children's novels in Kickstarter's history. The kickstarter reached its goal of $10,000 in under four hours, and has since been labeled "Project We Love" by the crowdsourcing giant. By the end of the thirty day campaign the goal was topped by an incredible 620%.
Veteran TV Executive, and author Brian Wells is committed to creating engaging content, and instilling positivity into his characters even when the going gets tough. This series is target specifically toward readers ages nine to fourteen, but the characters, and story conveys the type of character parents want to see in their kids. In addition Brian Wells has taken the top 140 vocabulary words that middle schoolers need to succeed throughout their middle school years, and has invisibly woven them into the story. This will help your child stay sharp for school during summer, and winter breaks without even realizing that they are "doing the work." Secondly the characters in this story discover lessons in mercy, compassion, and charity. This is shown in real life when each copy is purchased, one copy of The League and The Lantern is donated to a child in need.
The League and The Lantern is available for pre-order now at LeagueandLantern.com for $16.00 (plus shipping), and $7.99 for the e-book. There is a FREE sneak peek of the first six chapters of the book available on the website as well.
I was a huge lover of Harry Potter, as well as Ellen Hopkins' book series for young adults, and this book could easily be up there with both of those series. There is just as much wonderment, and imagination in The League and The Lantern as there is in Harry Potter, or Percy Jackson.
The plot is always twisting so it will keep your children engaged, and always wondering what will happen next.
The story is easy to follow, easy to read, and instills great concepts of family, friendship, compassion, and adventure.
I would highly recommend this book if you are looking for the next great gift for birthday's, holiday's, or just everyday reading.
*I was provided a copy of this book free of charge from Flyby promotions to test, and review, but all opinions are my own.
