I've decided to read The Secrets of Droon series entirely for Christmas since i've been feeling a bit nostalgic. I want to be able to live a bit of the magic of being a kid and what beeter to help than this incredible series.

No doubt my appreciation of this Droon book was hampered by reading the far superior Enchanted Glass, which is so far beyond this series as to be in a different universe. But there's some stuff to like about this: Eric develops his magical powers a bit more, Galen is shown to be fallible, Tony Abbott mistakes a tortoise for a turtle, Neal gets adoring fans, and the character of Hob, the sentient hyena mask maker is introduced.

When the kids go to Droon, Eric has these powers from book #12, and he accidentally makes flying donuts go through the basement, but he tries to get them all in his mouth. Sparr is in this one with a mask, and his henchman is in it too. I liked this one because it had a lot of action and fighting.
