In Author Kurt Chambers’ novel, TRUTH TELLER, ten-year-old Charlotte, her parents and six-year-old sister, Beth, are on holiday, when Charlotte wanders into an old shop where she sees a snow dome without snow. Inside the dome is a miniature planet revolving in slow motion. She really wants that dome. When an old man in the shop offers it to her for free, how can she refuse? The only catch is she must always tell the truth. If she only knew what lay ahead, she might have had second thoughts about accepting the dome. Or maybe not. Anyway, what follows is an adventure with elves, dark creatures, trolls, magic, danger and a lot more.
The author has created a fantasy world with all sorts of creatures, good ones and bad ones, exactly what a good story needs. I especially liked Elderfield, AKA Elder. He was so kind and helpful to Charlotte. The kind of big brother a girl should have. There’s plenty of action and some violence, along with gentle moments and humor. So for your next reading adventure, follow along with Charlotte and Elder in TRUTH TELLER.
There are many great moments of suspense and excitement that feel just right for young readers. After the big show down between good and evil, though, it lost steam a bit. All in all a solid foundation for a fun series for tweens.
I would have liked a little more backstory on Goffer, but a MG reader would never miss backstories on characters with little effect on the storyline. More than two or three would really bore a child. It could slow the story down.
I have spent some time in the UK, so I know what almost all the little differences are in the languages. I would not if I were one of most MG readers in the US. That's not all bad. Reader's are likely to make the connection between "Caravan" and "Camper"/"Motor Home", but some may be confusing. They won't have any trouble figuring out "take-away", vs, "carry out" when it comes to fast food. There was one that I don't know. It was a song called "Ten Green Bottles." But I suspect it's much like our "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"
I would love to see this in print. I think children should, at least to start, have real books. That's only my opinion. I would wish for them to have that "Just one more chapter" experience, no mater what the format. This would be just such a book.
