About the Author
Deb Logan loves fantasy of all flavors, from Celtic mythology to Native American legends. Dragons are her favorite fantasy creatures, but she also loves faeries, water horses, sasquatch, and thunderbirds. Of course, Deb likes normal critters too. Her dog is a favorite: a bull mastiff the exact color of a perfectly toasted marshmallow. Oh, and you might like to know that Deb is a mother of twins…boy-girl twins. Just like Justin and Janine in Thunderbird! If you visit her website (deblogan.wordpress.com), you can read an interview about her experiences as a mother of twins. Hooray for Faeries and Dragons and Thunderbirds, Oh My!

It hits just about every single check in my list. Including the all important "will I re read it!" (I will!)
I look forward to reading more titles by this author.
And it would be a great story to read aloud to children.
Thanks Ms Logan!
When I read like a kid (I'm actually a grown up, despite what my daughter might say), I think differently than I do as an adult. Some kids' books you can read as an adult (like Harry Potter), but some kids' books you have to read like a kid (like Goosebumps). This book is a book you should really read as a kid, and that's a good thing. When twins Janine and Justin take off without their father knowing where they're going to follow a magical quest, my adult brain wanted to go, "No! Bad bad! Kids shouldn't take off without their parents!" but it's a book. So I turned off that part of my brain and just enjoyed the book for what it is, which is an adventure story. You know, a story in which people do stuff that they wouldn't normally do, which, you know, most kids can figure out that they shouldn't take off on magical quests without at least leaving their parents a note first.
One thing my adult brain really got into--Justin and Janine end up making part of their lengthy journey through the spirit world. As an adult, I've read a lot of stuff about traveling through various spirit worlds that just leaves me bored, but the adult side of me found the spirit world described here just as interesting as my kid brain did. I really enjoyed the fact that it changes depending on who your guide is? Loved it.
Fast action, not a lot of blah blah blah, good characters, interesting plot and locations: this book receives my kid-brain seal of approval.
