John Pirhalla gives a great performance as narrator and has just the right voice, too.
Trying to survive the trip, Wesley paired up with his friend Taylor Williams to enjoy the rest of the library tour. Together they discovered Randy swiped a dagger from the Peter Pan display, wooden carved art pieces depicting classics in literature, a lost boy and a secret passage to the librarian's office. As they spied on the office, a mysterious man in a black cloak appeared and they joined the librarian to escape.
This is a fun fantasy story for the book lover. It is appropriate for upper elementary and middle school. I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to the next one.
Wesley Bates' class heads to a local historical building, "the library," that's in danger of being closed. Wesley and his friend Taylor explore more of the library than they ought to, and they end up finding out the mystery of the library...that it contains two-way portals tot books. A character from Peter Pan ends up in the library, and when they can't find the magical element to reopen the portal back to his book, they need to get him somewhere else, as there's an 88-minute time limit in an area that isn't your original entry point. They end up in Oz, where they inadvertently mess with the plot, creating havoc and changing the storyline completely. The cliffhanger ends up with the Librarian setting out to right their wrongs.
This was a great story and other than the constant changing of the point of view and the bad language;(I became aware he had updated the book and taken out the bad language; but I wish he would take out the two places where a character utters "Oh my God" and "Jesus") I would have given this book four stars.
The story revolves a bookish kid, Wes, who is often bullied by a classmate. During a field trip to the town library, he and his crush, Taylor, fall headfirst into some adventures due to the library's magical attributes. There's some feel good moments, some lessons learned, and mystery woven through the story. There were a couple parts in particular where my son got to giggling, which gave me the giggles, so I can say we enjoyed it thoroughly. However it is intended to be a series, as the ending is quite the cliffhanger.
We will definitely be downloading the second in the series!
Wesley, a bookish, picked-on kid, & his friend Taylor get the adventure of their lives, meeting up with come to life versions of characters from well known works in children's literature. (Peter Pan, Wizard of Oz, etc)What kid wouldn't want to enter or visit the lands of their favorite stories? What adult wouldn't mind a chance to meet the larger than life characters from their childhood? Crossing between the two worlds of fantasy & reality creates an exciting thrill ride for Wes & Tay. Can altering one little detail in the storybook world make that much difference? It certainly wouldn't affect the real world; or could it?
With the library as its setting & the vast expanse of great literary works, there are no limits where the author could go with this idea. The plot was fun & imaginative. The short chapters helped set & maintain a fast, action/adventure pace; & the characters were likeable & real. Would like to see other books; maybe even age the kids (like in Harry Potter) & see where the wonderful world of the written word takes them.(
