Book Review: excellent for young readers

Rating: 5 stars

I love this series, I have since I first discovered it almost 10 years ago. I think that if more parents knew about this series and the effect that it can have on even reluctant readers that it would shortly become almost as popular as a certain other young man dealing with magical forces that we’ve all come to know.

Book Review: One of the Best

Rating: 5 stars

Easily ranks up among other great series like Narnia, Potter and His Dark Materials, this series just didn’t get the exposure. Fabulous. I read these as a child (80’s) and purchased them to read again now.

Book Review: Best Kids Books EVER

Rating: 5 stars

I’ve read these books about 10 times each since I was a kid and they never get old.

Book Review: Underappreciated

Rating: 5 stars

To any parent of a young teen or a child heading toward that age, this is an absolute must have collection. To any fan of fantasy of any age, this is an absolute must have collection. To any fan of superbly written prose and compelling plots…well, you get the idea. Susan Cooper is one of the greatest writers of teen fantasy ever. Her Dark is Rising Series may not have made her a billionaire, like Harry Potter did for Rowlings, but it has provided tremendous joy to countless young readers for decades.

I came across The Dark is Rising in the sixth grade as a library book. It was one of the first books I lost sleep to finish. I went on to read the other two books my library had–The Grey King and Silver on the Tree.
