Book Review ~ "Benotripia: The Stones of Horsh" by McKenzie Wagner
Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Book Description: With the queen gone, the Darvonians have the perfect opportunity to invade Benotripia, find the Stones of Horsh, and harness their great powers. Only three children stand in their way: Roseabelle, Jessicana, and Astro. But this time, the Darvonians know not to underestimate these children, and the invaders come prepared. Roseabelle and her friends must survive long enough to save the stones.
My thoughts: When you consider the age of the author, this book is amazing. To have such a young lady accomplish so much is very commendable. The hard part in reviewing this book for me, is that I am used to the works of author's who have been working at their craft for a very long time.
McKenzie Wagner is a child author who writes for children. She writes what they would like to read. The book is well plotted and has a strong story line. This is her second book, the first written when she was eleven years old.
I can imagine a teacher reading this book to her class, probably at a second or third grade level. I can picture the kids sitting around their teacher hanging on the words and not wanting the teacher to stop. It is full of imagination and action.
