Ravenwood product reviews

Who holds the seeds to save a sky-high world?

Arborium is at risk, the sharpened blades of rival Maw poised to saw off its bark and branches. What can a poor plumber's apprentice armed with little more than a monkey wrench do to stop the chopping?

Carved into a massive, mile-high canopy, the forest kingdom of Arborium stands upon the tallest of trees. Within them, 14-year-old Ark holds the lowest of jobs: unclogging toilets. He's already up to his elbows in gunk when he REALLY steps in it. He overhears a plot echoing through the pipes: Maw, a ruthless glass-and-steel superpower, is scheming to wield its axes of evil to strip Arborium of its wood -- a natural resource now more precious than gold.

The fate of a kingdom in the filthy hands of a plumber boy?

Plunged into danger, Ark must make the treacherous climb down to the darkest roots of RAVENWOOD if there's any hope of rescuing his threatened tree home!

It took a little while to get into this but once I did then I found it to be a good solid read. The characters were pretty likeable as well as fun(ny) plus there were characters you couldn't wait to see get theirs! After a few chapters I got to the point where it was hard to put down and was cheering Ark and his friends on as the battled to save their small kingdom.

I particularly enjoyed the running theme of conservation, that we need to stop and consider what we do to our planet before we destroy all that is beautiful and precious within it's own amazing right. This is a subject very dear to me and it was great to see this thoroughly explored in a book aimed at a generation that can help change what we're currently doing.

I also liked the underlying message that with courage, anyone can make a difference.

I could see this appealing to the young audience who enjoy the sci-fi/fantasy adventures (and maybe also kids at heart like me!)

Product reviews for listing 6462: Minions: Long Live King Bob! -  Author: Minions

Product image for Minions: Long Live King Bob!A cheeky picture book fun from the Minions movie.

What's naughty but nice? Those wicked little Minions. Their appetite for evil is almost as big as their taste for yummy bapples. (But that doesn't stop us chuckling at them.) Now these cute evil monsters need an evil master. Trouble is, their leaders rarely live that long. They've killed Dracula. Napoleon. And lots of cursed Egyptian pharaohs. (They'd be handy in a zombie apocalypse.) Will they ever find their perfect villain?
