Review

I read all of McKenzie's books, so I had to read Sign of the Green Dragon. It didn't disappoint me just as her Alligators Overhead and The Great Time Lock Disaster didn't. Sam Denny is a loveable adventurer, and with his two companions, take the reader on a wild treasure hunt. When they find a skeleton clutching a map that promises a treasure, they can't pass it up. But it doesn't turn out to be just a treasure hunt. They get tied up with art forgers, almost wind up sealed in a tomb, and face three powerful dragons. It's a fast-paced, non-stop adventure that kids--and some adults--will enjoy. --Goodreads

Another rollicking middle grade treasure of a tale from author, C. Lee McKenzie! If you have a boy (or girl) who loves a good mystery adventure, this is the book for them. The plot has more twists than a dragon s tail, and the characters are both funny and enduring, especially Sam. He never gives up going after his dream, but at the same time, he is a true friend to his buddies. And the way the dragons fit it? Well, I won t spoil it for you, but trust me very clever and satisfying. --Goodreads

Most children simply want a home, a mother and father, someone to love them. They like to hang out with their friends, play sports, or other activities they enjoy. Life doesn t always turn out the way a child, or an adult for that matter, wants it to. In SIGN OF THE GREEN DRAGON, by Author C. Lee McKenzie, Sam is one of the children whose life is out of control. For six months Sam has been an orphan and lived with his Uncle Jasper. According to Uncle Jasper, the arrangement hasn t worked out, and he s sending Sam to a private boarding school. Not only will Sam lose his home, such as it is, he ll also miss out on playing in the district championship baseball game. Their coach says they have a very good chance to win. With his world falling apart, Sam runs away to the mountains, where he can sleep in a cave, and his friends, Roger and Joey, will bring him what he needs. Then he ll still be there for the game. Sam and his friends don t count on weird things happening , however: a secret room, a chest with a carving of a dragon, and inside the chest a ... I don t want to give anything away, but the boys are in for an adventure they could never have imagined. Author C. Lee McKenzie is a master at creating characters that seem so real the reader finds her/himself hoping they ll succeed in achieving their goals. She even adds a bit of interesting history to the story. The plot keeps the boys, as well as the reader, guessing what will happen next. Just when you think you know all the answers, the author throws in a twist or a surprise, and you think OOPS, I didn t see that coming. Middle grade and tween readers, boys especially, should enjoy following Sam and his friends on their quest to solve an age old mystery. This book is perfect for middle school libraries and classrooms, public libraries, and your own library of course, so you can read the story again. Highly recommended. The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review. --Goodreads
