I donâ€™t usually do a lot of reading, but since this book was just 242 pages, I was able to enjoy it; especially with that extra down time I had with my web site updates and transfers (yuck). So with my unwanted down time, I made use of it, including checking out a new book called Childrenâ€™s Fantasy in the e-book
Even though James has just celebrated his eleventh birthday and his magical abilities have just awakened, he feels like the most unlucky boy on the planet. Heâ€™s not just sulking for no good reasonâ€”he is actually cursed with bad luck. Itâ€™s hereditary and his family has dealt with their misfortune for generations. With the help of his two best friends and a wise wereparakeet he has just inherited, James is determined to alter his fate and to make the very best of his situation.

As many of you know, I do homeschool my 8 year old daughter. So with that, not only did I read this book, but I did so alongside of my 8 year old daughter. For the most part she was able to read the book, but of course some of it she still needed my help. I was very pleased to find that the book was well written and easy to understand. I love the amount of detail that the author used when writing the book, which made it easy to imagine as you read. Details are what really helps make a book come alive and I found the author made sure of that with this publishing.
The plot flows through a fantasy adventure
with just a small amount of humor about a young wizard who turns eleven and his magical power finally awakens and he finds out he has a family curse which brings bad luck. The main conflict of the story runs on the incident where James have to stop a powerful secondary realm creature who is hiding in the school. There is only one rule: Like all wereanimals, it`s very important for her to remain a vegetarian, especially when there is a full moon.
Ultimately I found this to be a great read and a great way for my daughter and I to do her school work together. It was also her first chapter book that I was able to help her read. If I could suggest any improvements it would be to add some illustrations in since it is a childrenâ€™s book. While I know thatâ€™s not usually typical, I am a picture person, as is my daughter. Itâ€™s just a mere opinionated suggestion for that though and doesnâ€™t alter how I feel about the overall book. Great book, great experience and seems to be a great author. Definitely recommended!
