I really loves this book. There's a few sentimental aspects of Red Shirt Kids that made me inclined to like it, but it really is a super cool fantastical mystery. Clark's fresh and modern links to Arthurian myth and Scottish history were so fun and unexpected. I loved every minute I got to spend with the Red Shirt Kids and devoured their adventure in one sitting. I can't wait to read it to my son! I am hoping there is a sequel. :-)

What I love most about this book is that these are stories that the author's father told him and his siblings as bedtime stories. My kids love bedtime stories and this book fits perfectly with bedtime, each chapter is just a few pages so it is realistic to read one chapter each night without it taking up too much time or having to stop in the middle of a chapter.

Such a fun, quick read. It's perfect for kids. Either for you to read out loud or for them to read by themselves. The author is local and we got to meet him. I am excited to read the second one to my children when it comes out.
This was a fun, quick read book! It had very short chapters, easy for children to understand, and it was a great story. We met the author and he said that he was working on the second book right now. I'll be excited to read that one too.
I think this is the perfect book to get older elementary age kids excited about reading. Great to read to them before bedtime and leave them anxious to know what will happen next.
