4.0 out of 5 stars Good fantasy series for young readers! November 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
THE GREEN DOOR and the upcoming Secret Doorway Tales would probably have the broadest appeal to young readers who like the fantasy genre. The stories are imaginative and well-written, although a bit of editing is needed. In this opening story, a young girl named Anne finds her way through a magical portal into another world. She meets many fantasy creatures, some of them friends and some of them foes. She confronts the evil Queen of Winter who seems intent on the destruction of the fantasy world. Anne discovers that the damage the queen inflicts will also carry over into the real world. Anne, with the help of her fantasy friends, tries to foil the evil queen.

The story doesn't feel entirely original as it seems to be a mishmash of Alice in Wonderland, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Catherine Cooper's The Golden Acorn. Nevertheless, I think that young readers would really enjoy the Secret Doorway Tales. I also appreciate the fact that the author incorporates a message about saving the environment and nature in her stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very derivative April 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As at least one other reviewer has noted, this book is highly derivative of some classics of children's literature. The main character is a bit of a goody-goody and, to my chagrin, I found myself wishing several times that something terrible would happen to her in the course of her adventures (this probably says much more about me than it does about the author). Children may enjoy, but I found it by-the-numbers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A perfect story for children and young adults August 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A story about a seven year old girl who is led into her own never, never land.

There is an ending that really is no ending at all, because if it truly ended, there would not be more book in the lineup, correct?

This book was written for younger people, in the way that it was written and how the story played out.
So it did not fall into my line of reading, as I prefer more action, and magic. But this book was pretty good, in general, and ideal for children readers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent late night read... December 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Downloaded a complimentary copy of this book onto my tablet late one night last week since I couldn't sleep. Read it in about 3-4 hours straight through. The plot was well constructed. I didn't love the book. I didn't hate the book. A decent read for a sleepless night. Parts of the book reminded me of different scenes from the Narnia books (just not as well constructed). A coincidence? Who knows...
