Saving Redwind: A Wallpaper Adventure Paperback – July 13, 2011
From the Author
Hi all! Thanks for taking the time to find out more about my story, Saving Redwind. I was inspired to write this story when my family moved into a new house. My son's soon-to-be bedroom walls were covered in a horrific wallpaper - huge flowers in pinks and grays. While taking the wallpaper down, I started to think about what it would be like if the world was like the huge flowers. My imagination started to run away with me (I swear it wasn't the fumes from the wallpaper remover!) and Redwind was born. The two main characters, Nick and Jacob, are named after my two sons. Nick does indeed play hockey, and Jacob does seem to read my mind!
I hope you'll enjoy Saving Redwind. I would love to hear your thoughts on this first book in the Wallpaper Adventure series. Check back often to find out when the next book will be available!
Thanks again for stopping by!

When things start happening and his ceiling starts turning into some sort of storm, Nick wonders if he's losing his mind. Perhaps he's asked for more than he's bargained for in wanting an adventure. As he ponders this thought, a boy shows up asking him for help in saving his world - one known as Redwind. While everything inside cries out that the boy's request is completely unbelievable, Nick agrees and is sucked into the very wallpaper within his room. Thrown into an extraordinary world that takes him by surprise, Nick tries to grasp the meaning behind the boys odd request.
Having always considered himself as no one special, he's completely blown away by the fact that the people he comes to meet are relying on him to set all wrongs to right. With time being of the essence, Nick does his best to do as he is asked, praying that he'll have enough time to complete the objectives that have been set out before him.
Battling his doubts and insecurities, as well as the obstacles that have been strewn across his path, Nick finds it within himself to give it his all while trying to save a world that has come to mean more to him than he ever imagined. A world that seems more real as the minutes pass by.
While this is a children's book, it's truly an enjoyable read. So much so, that once you start, it's hard to put down. Kris weaves such a delightful tale that you find yourself wanting to know more about what happens to Nick and the friend's that he's made along the way. I truly recommend reading this book.
I think this book was cool. I really liked the made-up creatures in the story, especially the Krog. The plot idea of creepy wallpaper coming to life and being a doorway to another world really got my interest. Redwind is a cool world that Ms. Yankee described really well. Nick was a good main character, but my favorite was Simon The Elder because he was really nice, smart and he could shape-shift (who doesn't like shape-shifting?). The book is a clean read with no graphic violence or bad words. I think this is a great book for boys but girls will also like it.
**NOTE** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
