Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-9-In 1753, Billy Bartram and his naturalist father John, members of the American Philosophical Society, set out to find the lost Kingdom of Madoc, a centuries-old settlement rumored to be on the frontier. They encounter more danger than expected on their journey. Flying across the frontier in the airship di Terzi, they meet a young George Washington, but also a dangerous group of French troops who want to take over their airship. To make matters worse, they also encounter incognitum (mastodons), bear-wolves, and a possible traitor onboard. Will Billy and his father find the Kingdom of Madoc? Will they figure out who the traitor is before it's too late? Narrator Charlie McWade masterfully draws listeners into Kirby's tale (Scholastic, 2013). His unique character voices are skillful, and sound effects and music enhance the story. This one's for fans of steampunk, historical fiction, and adventure as well as Scott Westerfeld's "Leviathan" trilogy.-Jessica Moody, Olympus Junior High School, Holladay, UTα(c) Copyright 2013.

From Booklist

In 1753, noted American naturalist John Bartram and his son Billy join an expedition to search the frontier in the di Terzi, a flying ship powered by “vacuum balloons” and wind. Their mission is to find the centuries-old Kingdom of Madoc, a Welsh settlement rumored to be on the frontier. Along the way they encounter the young George Washington, hostile French troops, a herd of enormous incognitum (mastodons), and a terrifying bear-wolf. Though his father mistrusts their guide, who is part Indian, Billy finds himself increasingly convinced that the man is true to his word. This alternate-history story, propelled by scenes of suspense and rousing action, traces Billy’s growing independence from his beloved father. As the stakes grow higher, he comes to rely increasingly on his own judgment. Billy’s first-person narrative offers insights into varied colonial American views on a number of topics. Inspired by history and legend, this inventive novel takes flight as a grand adventure with elements of fantasy and steampunk. Grades 4-7. --Carolyn Phelan
