 My Review

We begin with four children who are highly unlikely to ever meet. Each stumble upon a creature that is invisible to anyone but themselves. When their new pets grow big enough to encompass their entire bodies, the four children find themselves being whisked away on important adventure.  To save the world from the Four Fiends who have captured the Four Guardians of the world.   First we have Jinjing from Hong Kong. A girl tall in statue, but who is afraid of her own shadow. Pietro from Italy, who specialises in bending the truth into larger than life stories.  Kate from the USA, who is confident but never very good at asking for help.  Finally Saburo, who just wants to be like every other kid, not a child with troublesome legs that pain him. The children are given a magical item to help them along the way. They must defeat the Four Fiends, in order to free the Guardians. At times they band together, and at times they must journey alone, but each one must face their fears in order to battle the Fiends.
  This was a fun adventure and a coming of age tale of sorts. Each of the children have their own journey to take.  It was great to watch them grow and mature and find their unique courage along the way. I think this will appeal to kids aged 9-12, with its rich elements of mythology and fantasy and the unlikely friendships that develop along their quest.

The Buzz
"This was one of the most entertaining reads for the whole family we have found in a long time. The characters are very believable, and I am always a sucker for heroes that have to find their way. The reading is very fluid and easily understood by the little kids when read aloud (sounds silly but anyone trying to do this will tell you it's not as easy a thing to achieve as it sounds) and the kids all seem to enjoy the story. The history is easily accessible even without a lot of research or background knowledge. The kids are very motivated to research and learn more on their own because this story has captured their interest. I already have many home learning lessons in mind using this book and have begun developing them with my kids. I think this is a book that will be found in classrooms very soon! Great job! I'm looking forward to more soon!!!" ~ 5 Star Review, Mariah W., Amazon
"Excellent read in and of itself, and provides excellent, character-building source material for reading to youngsters. The characters are well written and realistic, and the storyline is cleverly written and intelligent." ~ 5 Star Review, Alia K., Amazon
"Fantastic read. I loved the characters in this book so much that I re-read to my 9 year old after finishing it. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes stories about adventure and believing in yourself." ~ 5 Star Review, Keith, Amazon
