I tried very hard to bring great quality literature to this book. I used many different literary devices that I think people will like. I worked on setting hard also so that the reader would feel planted in the world I have created. Character development was probably the most difficult and I spent much time thinking about Nathaniel and the boy that I want him to be and become. And who said writing was easy...

Overall I think this book will be enjoyed by all who read it. It is filled with

Christopher received the pen as a gift, not realizing it had majic. A book of imagination and a fun read for middle school age children. Would recommend to them.

This book is about a boy who gets a magical pen that can make his writings become real. When he draws, his creations enter the world of Trankarri. He ends up visiting the world and having to defeat some evil creatures within the world who are trying to get out. I absolutely loved this book. It is probably on my top 5. The authors descriptions were so vivid in parts that really made me feel like I was physically experiencing these things myself. I still have such amazing memories of this book ...more

The author gave himself a 5 star of this book which significantly lowered my hopes for the book. brag awards entity gave 5 stars based on a readership of 200+ because their group gave the text an honourable mention. So at this stage only 2 genuine reviews stand for this book.

SPOILERS included!!!!!

This book started out great but as it progressed it got more unbelievable and the story line got into all kinds of problems. This isn't to say some great originals were included like horses riding
