|New from||Used from|
Rare Blend of Education and Entertainment
In Gwen Dandridge's novel, The Stone Lions, history, mathematics, magic, and intrigue combine to create a fascinating read for preteens.
The Stone Lions is a rare blend of education and entertainment. She has woven lessons on symmetry throughout the story in a way that is quite seamless. The book also includes valuable cultural lessons on Muslim heritage that would be beneficial for history classrooms. ~Readers' Favorite
A Rowling-esque adventure
"More importantly, the story never stops feeling like a Rowling-esque adventure, pitting brave girls against seemingly impossible odds--mathematically speaking, of course. Ages 8-up.

I really liked the fact that the women and girls had dreams and ambitions and were allowed to be themselves in a culture that stereotypically sees women as being oppressed. They were able to stand up for themselves when threatened and had rights that no man could violate.
The story has mystery and intrigue, couple with legends of the past. There is danger and humour - and a bit of a mathematical education for young readers.
I look forward to reading more of Gwen Dandridge's work.
