Want to get your older child interested!

It's a great way to introduce ancient mythology into modern understanding. Often these characters are really 2-D.

ideal summer reading! great book for tweens, teens and adults!

When my thirteen year old couldn't stop talking about this book, my nine year old read it and was equally enthusiastic. It's hard to find a book which appeals to both boys and girls and Michael Scott's Necromancer certainly did the trick. The exciting book follows twins Sophie and Josh on a twisting tale of adventure and , frankly, I loved it as well...and I'm in my late thirties! This book is great for kids because it features strong heroines and heroes who take their audience on a masterful ride.
