Ah, The Secrets of Droon! Around about the time that Harry Potter swept up most middle grade and older readers, Tony Abbott produced a series of fantasy books for upper elementary readers. At a higher reading level than The Magic Tree House, Secrets of Droon was an exciting, fun bridge to more challenging fantasy. And it gave young readers a magic world of their own.
Abbot has written many more adventures, exciting AND funny.
Now Tony Abbott introduces The Copernicus Legacy. This looks like it will give Percy Jackson a run for his money. Click on the link above for a chance to win a trip to NYC to meet Tony Abbott. In the meantime, hightail it to a bookstore or library and pick up The Forbidden Stone.
