In Praise of THE DREAMSTONE:

“The Dreamstone, by Mikey Brooks, is a wild stallion of a story: fast, thrilling, and unpredictable. I was hooked in chapter one. If he can snare the attention of an old reader like me, he’ll have kids sneaking this one into class underneath their text books…If this one isn’t a kid-pleaser, I don’t know what is.” –Michelle Isenhoff, author of the Divided Decade Trilogy and the Taylor Davis Series.keychain back

This is far out good and entertaining. It will become a pre-teen to young adult and the young of heart’s favorite. The tale is clean, wholesome and riveting. It is must have in every home and school library” –Anna del C. Dye, author of The Silent Warrior Trilogy.

“If you like the Percy Jackson, Fablehaven, or the Harry Potter series, you’ll love this!” –An Amazon Reviewer.

D. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn’t been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer’s Sirens. It’s not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.

The Best Gift for your teen or tween? Books, of course!

The holidays. What better gift to give than a boxed set of a favorite series!

I’m going to share some of the book series that are great to give as gifts for your teen or tween this season.

Percy Jackson

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
I loved this series for it’s action packed adventure. The ancient myth doesn’t hurt either.

Gregor the Overlander

Gregor the Overlander, The Underland Chronicles by Suzanne Collins
This is a recent favorite. Gregor is reluctant but brave in this series.

Anne of Green GablesAnne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
One of my all time favorites, Anne is spunky and keeps a positive outlook on things. Except for the time she turned her hair green…

The Missing HaddixThe Missing by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Time travel adventures in history.  A step or two above Magic Tree House though. These books will keep your tween engaged.

Wizard of OzWizard of Oz by Frank Baum (thanks Mikey for the reminder!)
A classic but in the additional books you’ll learn even more fantastic aspects of Baum’s universe.

Harry PotterHarry Potter series by JK Rowling
A new-classic in every sense of the word. Dealing with friendships and making the right decisions even if they’re hard to do, Harry Potter teaches some great life lessons.

39 Clues39 Clues by various authors (including Rick Riordan, Margaret Haddix, Linda Sue Park) published by Scholastic
I really enjoyed watching Dan and Amy grow over the series as they learn more about their mysterious family.

The Kane ChroniclesThe Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan
I really enjoyed the Egyptian history and myth that goes along with these books. The brother and sister duo have great voices.

SBDaughters106x160Various princess retellings by Diane Zahler, she has four beautiful books out that are retellings of different princess fairy tales.

NarniaThe Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis
Another classic. Full of adventure and lore.

TolkienThe Hobbit and the rest of the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien
Fantasy worlds at their best.

Artemis FowlArtemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
Artemis is the young anti-hero. A bad guy with a twist.
I enjoyed Colfer’s darker take on the fairy world.
