I am always on the lookout for relatable adventure tales to read with my sons. The Deliverers: Sharky and the Jewel is an engaging tale that captivated our whole family.
The main character, Eric Scott continues to struggle with the death of his father and the guilt that he could have done more to save him. Even though his confidence is shaken, he is a brave boy who takes a leap of faith when he follows Stig, a talking owl, into a drainpipe that leads to a magical doorway. Eric agrees to go with

The accidental death of his father haunts twelve-year-old Eric Scott, and he thinks he's dreaming again when Stig, a talking owl from another world, shows up late one night.

“A fantastic, poignant, and flawless story. This book made me want to dream more and be a 12-year-old again, and join the main character’s next journey. Yes, I want a sequel. :D” – Ara of My Book and My Coffee

The action starts from the first chapter and picks up from there. The author uses clever names and creates interesting characters. The main character, Eric, is smart and braver than he knows. He has to rely on friends to help him solve the problems that arise and this seemed very real to me. Kids will definitely be able t ...more

Long ago in another lifetime, I taught elementary school children and read aloud to them every day after lunch. I only wish I'd had this story to read to my 5th graders ! An adventure complete with young heroes, a talking owl, dastardly pirates, dwarves, brave villagers, menacing bats, Guardians and a Gatekeeper, this story is just perfect for young readers. When I read the names of the villagers and their occupations, I chuckled ~ the apothecary is named Bottleneck; the net mender, Stitch. And ...more

What can I say, I wrote it. It's a great book for kids 8 to 12, and many adults like it too. It will be oput soon on audio book.
Fast paced book for kids'. I know the author, so I have to complement his style. Good job Greg.
