    If you have a young reader that loves adventure stories, this one is definitely for them It is action packed, fantastic fun, and full of imagination I am ashamed to admit it, but I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this story.What this story is about is Isaac, his little sister Lily, and his two friends One day they are at school practicing for the school play and the next thing they know they are in a whole different world underground One that has elves, enlarged animals that can talk, and a whole bunch of other extremely weird creatures Actually, the weird creatures are just humans that have made their way to the elves in the underground and are some where in the long process of transforming into an elf themselves.The price for becoming an elf and receiving the immortality that comes with it is a lot, you have to be willing to become almost anything in the process There is no telling what kind of changes you will go through You could become invisible, you might become a giant ear, end up with the butt of a firefly, the options are as endless as your imagination Why did Isaac and his friends end up in this world Well, Isaac is the reason that Lily s jewel gem it s a piece of her toy crown go...

    I was very happy to be asked to review Tales of a Fifth Grade Knight by Douglas Gibson in exchange for a free copy of the book This is a fun, fast paced fantasy novel for middle grades As a librarian, I d probably offer it to children who are ready to move up from short chapter books like the Magic Treehouse, Time Warp Trio or the Dragon Master series It should also appeal to children who love tales with knights and quests Tales of a Fifth Grade Knight opens with three friends, Isaac, Max and Emma at an after school rehearsal for their class play The rehearsal runs late and then Isaac s little sister Lily is nowhere to be found Angry at Lily for making them even later, Isaac behaves badly, causing Lily to lose the plastic gem from her pretend crown A repentant Isaac and friends search for the gem even though it takes them into the school s creepy basement where they get locked in Leave it to Lily to find a secret exit and get lost again They three friends are in for than they bargained for when they follow Lily through a tunnel and into a city of elves and their servants How will the three ever find Lily there Douglas does a great job of ...

    This is such a cute story Isaac and his friends, through a series of accidents, find themselves in another land hunting for his little sister The Underground is full of some really great ideas I particularly enjoyed the concept of how newcomers became elves Seeing the various stages of transformation as they met the residents of the Underground was great I especially liked the ear man But things get very serious when they find out they may not be able to leave None of them are too keen on sticking around to see what they might be turning in to Lily is especially vulnerable to this change and they need to get her out fast Not all the creatures they run into are good or bad There are quite a few that are just trying to get on with their lives a very great mix The ending is quite nice, but I hope Lily learns a bit of a lesson out of the whole thing Hopefully we ll see in this world The author left it open for another adventure, but still wrapped this one up very nicely Thi...

    Thoughts This was a really fun, creative book The writing is fast paced and exciting, the type of book that instantly pulls you into the story and can keep you occupied for hours I loved Max s character he has one of my favorite personalities and liked the touch of humor he added to the story Isaac is an admirable, likable protagonist that I think most kids my age will be able to relate to The story was incredibly interesting, and although it was also simple, I think all kids ages 6 11 will enjoy this book In addition, I loved the creative twists throughout the story the Ear and the Acro Bat being some of my favorites The high stakes felt very real, so the entire story, I was kept on the edge of my seat This was a super quick read for me, but I still enjoyed it to the fullest and would definite...
