Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light by Jaimie M. Engle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light will charm adult readers as well as children. One does not have to be an avid fan of fantasy stories or historical fiction to be pulled into this medieval tale that entangles long forgotten princes with sea creatures and fire-breathing dragons.
The best part about this book is that Clifton is a witty character who is easy to identify with. His adventures, both present day and past, are believable and relatable. Clifton is clever, but good natured, which makes him a character I would encourage my child to read about.
His good friend, Dane, kept me snickering the whole way through the tale. I love a book that makes me laugh out loud.
If you are looking for a book to read with your child, I highly recommend this middle grade novel. The story is intriguing enough to keep you both up late eagerly turning pages.
Teachers would enjoy reading this book with their classes not only because of its entertainment value, but also because of the endless options for integrating curriculum. Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light has applications in: social science, social and personal skills, music appreciation, writing, and, of course, reading courses.
