About the Author

I wrote these books for my daughter Rachael after she talked me into telling a story one warm autumn night when she was eight and bored, bored, bored with reading. The stories meant for eight-year-olds were not her thing, and she didn’t want to read about twelve-year-olds, because they were “too old.” “What would you like a story about?” I asked. “An adventure story with spies and magic,” she said. It was a full moon that night as we sat outside, and my thoughts went naturally to wolves...but quickly, the story got to be too complicated for me to keep track of (I’m a writer, not a talker), and I had to write it down for her. I wrote each book except the last at the same age that she was when I wrote it (the last one I’m writing about six months late—the story doesn’t take a break, but I needed one). It has been delightful to see both my daughter and her namesake getting older and making difficult and inspiring choices. Here’s to all the kids who stand up to bullies, everywhere!

By Gerald M. Weinberg on June 25, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
As an adult, I'm not supposed to admit that I enjoyed reading a book for younger readers. But as a grandfather, it's okay for me to tell how much my grandkids will enjoy De Kenyon's book, Xanadu House.

Xanadu House is Book 2 of The Exotics, and it's a bit hard to get started if you haven't read Book 1 (a problem which is readily solved). A bit hard, that is, if you're an adult with the adult kind of mind that insists on every question having a logical answer. On the other hand, Xanadu House has all the kinds of things kids love--as the cover promises, spies and magic. Plus likeable kids galore, and hateable ones, too. And mysterious characters doing incredible things.

The Exotics are shape-shifters, each one having an animal side to call upon, sometimes intentionally and sometime by accident. Rachel's mom turns into a bee. Her friend, Babra, a cute cocker spaniel. Digger is a mole, and Rachel, our heroine, discovers her alter-ego is a gecko. Her gecko-form allows her to walk on ceilings and slip through small spaces so she can escape traps and also spy on plotting adults and kids.

Xanadu House is a refuge for exotics, but in this sparkling adventure, there's really no place to hide that's entirely safe. That's just another reason kids will love the book.
