Welcome to the Kingdom of Wrenly—a new chapter book series full of fantasy and adventure.
Meet Lucas, the eight year-old prince, and Clara, the daughter of the queen’s seamstress. Lucas is an only child who longs to make friends and go on adventures. Clara knows the kingdom well, so she and Lucas team up and explore the lands of Wrenly.
In The Lost Stone, Lucas and Clara search for Queen Tasha’s missing emerald. On their exciting adventure, they travel to all the main attractions of Wrenly: Primlox (the island of fairies), Burth (the island of trolls), Crestwood (the island of dragons), Hobsgrove (the island of wizards), and the beautiful Mermaid’s Cove. King Caleb has promised to reward the person who finds the precious stone, and Lucas and Clara are determined to search the entire kingdom until they find it!
With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Kingdom of Wrenly chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.
You are probably thinking that I read a strange assortment of books and I do. Any fellow librarians would understand why. I see and put away books from any genre and I usually end up heading home with a tall stack of books. Just a few days ago I brought home books from the teen section, the inspirational section, the non-fiction section, and the children’s section. This book was in that stack. Since it is meant for beginner’s readers, I read it within a few minutes. This book was a good book and I would recommend it to any young boy and girl who likes an adventure story about two friends searching for a lost jewel. It was an excellent story about friendship.
Here is an example of the illustration that are found in this book. Also, the front cover is another example of the art work. I thought all of the drawings were very well done.
