Hi it’s Stitch here:

The weather is starting to warm up and that means we can sit outside and read…and enjoy an ice cream!

Today I have the second book in a series, so check it out:

Into The Web (Shadowzone Book 2) By Simon Rose

Into the Web is the second book in the Shadowzone series. Like the first it is action packed and will leave the reader wanting more. This time Ben and Charlie find themselves mixed up in a plot to prevent one world from taking over another. Ben discovers the truth about his parents and has to act to save his mum. To top it all off people start to believe Ben is the chosen one. His presence gives people hope in their doomed world, but makes Ben feel even more confused.
Once again Simon Rose has delivered a fast paced, action book with likable characters and a believable plot.

Stitch Says Book Review: Shadowzone #greatbook

Hi it’s Stitch here

I know It’s been a while, I’ve been sheltering from the rain and the cold. However spring is here, in theory and t’s time to start reading in the sunshine again. Today I have a great book for you:

Shadowzone By Simon Rose

Charlie and Ben live in different worlds. Charlie’s is condemned to doomsday after an asteroid destroyed the environment. Ben’s is their target. During a storm they see flashes of each other’s world and fall into a dangerous adventure. They discover that Ben is the key to a takeover plot, where the leaders of Charlie’s worlds will destroy everyone on Ben’s then move over.
Shadowzone is the first book in a series and I guarantee you will be racing towards the second. The characters are intriguing, but even more interesting is the plot. The idea of an environmental catastrophe being the turning point in the existence of two parallel worlds draws in the reader. As Charlie and Ben sink deeper into the plot, the reader will delve deeper into their world.
An excellent read!

Stitch Says Book Review: Historical Fiction at it’s Best #BeachBoundBooks

Hi it’s Stitch….

I’m not usually one for history, but this is a great, action packed book that children will love to read. Let’s check it out!

BeachBoundBooks is pleased to be coordinating a Blog Tour for the children’s historical fiction book written by Cheryl Carpinello, Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend. The tour will run from July 17 – August 7, 2017.

2017-06-28


About the Book

Guinevere Dawn of Legend Cover FINAL Apple & B&N

Title: Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend Book Two
Author: Cheryl Carpinello
Publisher: Beyond Today Educator
Publication Date: June 21, 2017
Number of Pages: 121
Genre: Children’s Historical Fiction
Summary: “Think before acting,” her father always warned. But Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. Her betrothal to King Arthur has not changed this.

When Guinevere and Cedwyn’s latest adventure takes a dangerous turn, they find themselves embroiled in a life-or-death struggle as foretold by Merlyn’s Goddess of the Stones.

Renegades—foiled in their attempt to kidnap the princess—steal the children of Cadbury Castle to sell as slaves. Guinevere and Cedwyn vow to rescue the children, but a miscalculation puts them all in more danger. The plan quickly unravels, and Guinevere’s impassioned decisions come crashing down as Cedwyn chooses to turn his dream of becoming a knight into reality. Will their courage be strong enough to survive, or will one make the ultimate sacrifice?


5-Star Review from Readers’ Favorite
Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite

Children are attracted to adventure and they don’t see the risks that adults do, refusing to accept many of the limitations and rules enforced for the sole purpose of keeping children safe. Guinevere and Cedwyn are close friends and Cedwyn, although still very young, has pledged his life to protect the princess who will one day be his queen when she marries King Arthur. Being children, they have their adventures. And one such adventure to the mysterious standing stones results in magical visions and then a race for their lives. There are people intent on kidnapping Guinevere. When she out-foxes their intentions, they take the castle children instead to be sold into slavery. Guinevere insists on chasing after the kidnappers and rescuing the children. The adventure intensifies as they risk their lives and become heroes. But are they totally successful in rescuing the children? Or do they just manage to create more problems in the process.

Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend is the sequel to Cheryl Carpinello’s first Guinevere story, Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend. Both books take the fascinating Arthurian legends and create stories that will entice even the most reluctant of readers. With realistic characters and an exciting plot full of adventure, the reader will be pulled along to an unexpected conclusion, one that demands another book to complete the series. Young readers will certainly easily associate with Guinevere and Cedwyn, who, at their young age, take risks and disobey their parents, while at the same time they reach out to help others and become heroes. A great way to entice readers, even reluctant ones, to follow the adventures found in legends.

Book One – Guinevere: On the Eve of Legend

Picture

At the dawn of Camelot, one young girl is about to take her place beside the greatest king in England’s history…. She is a mere child of twelve. But in these medieval days, this is the age when childish things must be put away and greater responsibilities accepted—all in preparation for a betrothal of marriage. For young Lady Guinevere, on the advent of her thirteenth Birth Day, the whole idea is quite unbearable. After all, what could be better than spending her youth playing with her best friend Cedwyn, roaming the grounds around the castle looking for mythical creatures or hunting rabbits? However, the wizard Merlyn—her teacher and friend—knows that destiny has a way of catching up with a person. His arrival sets in motion a series of events that will lead Guinevere to her destiny whether she is ready for it or not.

Stitch Says:

Children can get hooked into the stories of Guinevere and Sir Arthur, even if they are not history buffs. Historical Fiction is a great way to spark an interest and Cheryl Carpinello does this genre really well. This book is no exception. Princess Guinevere is ruled by her heart. When Guinevere and her best friend Cedwyn disobey orders and sneak out of the castle they think they are heading for some fun. Instead they find themselves in the middle of a dangerous journey that will make them take on new roles. Children will enjoy reading about these two likeable characters. They will relate to their flaws and their friendship.
Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend is a great book to encourage children to read and to take an interest in historical figures.

Stitch has been busy this week. Here is his character interview with nine-year old Tara, or Sweet T as her family sometimes calls her. T tells us about her role in Sweet T and the Turtle Team and summer adventures on Gull Island, North Carolina

“Hey, Sweet T!” as they say in Carolina. Welcome to my blog!

Super-excited to be here with you and on the Beach Bound Books tour! Cat says, “Hey!” back, and I am not to embarrass her. (Oops! Not supposed to say that last part.)

What brings you to Gull Island from your home in Kelly Lake? 

I’m staying with Great-aunt Mae Gray and little sister Jenna at Gray Cottage while Mama works at Gull Island Aquarium for the summer. It’s fun at the beach, but I miss Daddy and Kristen. They’re home in Kelly Lake because Kristen is at computer camp, and daddy is teaching summer school.

Are you making new friends on Gull island?

I’m trying, but it’s hard. Island kids are nice but they aren’t used to my city ways. Aunt Mae’s neighbor, Billy, can be nice one minute and grumpy the next. I can’t figure him out. I invited him to join my turtle team, but he said “No!” and stomped off. I asked Aunt Mae if she knew why, but she says it’s Billy’s secret to tell. I still want to be his friend, no matter what.

Tell us about your favorite moment in the story.
OOOooo. I know EXACTLY! When baby sea turtles hatch!

They are so cute! A gazillion pop out of their nest and swish across the sand to the ocean. 

Turtle teams watch over the babies to make sure they don’t become dinner for sand crabs and seagulls. Our artist, Irene A. Jahns, painted us THE most beautiful picture of a hatch. Cat calls it “shimmery watercolors to dazzle the eye.” 



You and sister Kristen exchange nightly text messages to stay in touch because Kristen’s far away in Kelly Lake with your father. Are your parents ok with the two of you texting?
Oh, yes! Mama and Daddy let us borrow their tablets for 30 minutes each night. Mama says it helps Kristen practice what she learns during computer camp. And I like learning texting, too. HaHaHa – Daddy says we still must know how to spell correctly -:>


Were you scared in the chapter about the tropical storm?
Well, tbh (that’s texting language for to be honest – Cat has a texting glossary in our book to help you learn the shortcuts!) we were all nervous when Cat first told us she was going to put us in an ocean storm. But she explained she’d lived through hurricanes and tropical storms as a girl in New England and then as a big person in North Carolina. She wasn’t going to make it a scary storm. Just enough bad weather to stir up adventure for us and let readers experience what it’s like to be in a summertime beach storm. Hint: lots of wind, thunder, and high surf!

What other books are you in?
Cat writes chapter books for young readers and older kids, who are smart but have a hard time with reading. She wrote my whole family and me into her first two books, Sweet T and the North Wind and Finding Fuzzy. (Oh, and you don’t have to read our books in order. We tell a complete story in each tale.)

Cat also wrote an e-book for i-Books and Kindle, The Magical Aquarium. Even though I’m not in it, it’s a really cool story for young readers about ocean creatures. UK artist Corrina Holyoake created the centerpiece illustration that shows … OOPS! … Can’t tell you what it is because I’ll give away the aquarium’s secret. But kids will love it when they find out and see her drawing!

I hope Cat writes another Sweet T Tale and keeps me in it. Maybe a return to Gull Island!?!

Thanks for joining us today, Sweet T. All the best to you and your new book, Sweet T and the Turtle Team.
Awww, thanks. It’s fun meeting you and your readers. Cat says y’all are THE best. She’s so right! We hope you’ll visit us on Gull Island soon. Sweet tea and Aunt Mae’s triple-fudge, peanut-butter pie are waiting for you at Gray Cottage. Happy tales!

Now it’s time for Stitch’s review:

Nine year old Tara may be having trouble making friends on the island, but she is determined to help the hatchlings get to the water safely. Being part of the turtle team leads her to find out more about the other kids on the island. It all seems to be going well, when a storm hits. Will Tara and her team be able to save the hatchlings?
Sweet T and the Turtle Team is a delightful book for animal lovers. The characters are interesting and there is great information about sea turtles too. The language is simple and the storyline is easy to follow. A great read for children aged 6 to 11.

Stitch Says Book Review: Twisted Fate #Bookreview

Hi, Stitch here:

Today I have a great book for you…

Twisted Fate by Simon Rose

Max was always told his mother jumped in front of a train, but on his fifteenth birthday he receives a box of her belongings. Suddenly he starts having dreams and visions. Is it possible she was pushed? Could he prevent the whole thing from happening and change his life? Twisted Fate is a tale full of time shifts, paranormal and nonstop adventure.
I will admit I am hesitant to rate time travel books highly. They are often confusing or far too easy to pull apart. However I have now read a few of Simon’s books and have to say he does time travel well. Once again he has produced a book full of action that is believable and easy to follow. Twisted Fate is a great read.

I have finally finished the second book in the Chase Tinker Series so it’s time to share:

Chase Tinker and the House of Secrets (The Chase Tinker Series, Book 2)

Chase now has his father back and they are now a part of a rescue mission. However things are not as clear as they seem. There are new twists, turns and magical characters.

Stitch Says Review

Tommy’s life is thrown upside down following the mysterious death of his father. He’s moved schools and now he discovers he is a sky raider. He appears to spend his night asleep, but he is really attending a school in the clouds. Sky Raiders control the weather, but one has gone rogue. Tommy and his new friends take it upon themselves to find the rogue raider and put a stop to all the crazy weather. Initiation is a great middle years book. It’s full of adventure and mystery. It is very different to other stories and will be enjoyed by many.
