The Stonekeeper pdf epub – Sisnlaw.co.uk
Just as good as the first time I read it!! FANTASTIC! This came recommended to me by a coworker's daughter (through my coworker who knew I wanted some recs for my kid since she will only read graphic novels or books that look like graphic novels, haha) My daughter, who is almost 9, and I read it today while we were at the doctor (she has been sick for like, forever, not cool).Anyway.Me: So, how do you rate this book, if five stars is awesome and Kid: Six!!!!!!She loved it, and you know what? I did too This was just fun, imaginative fantasy with magic, robots, an alternate reality, and the cutest bunny ever:Emily is a cool female lead She is given an amulet that has been in the family, and it's magic of course, and she gets to become a Stonekeeper! Ohhhhhh, coooool For realz Can I be one?I can't wait to read the next book!One thing for younger kids is that there are several instances where family members are either sick or (view spoiler)[die One scene where she meets her greatgrandfather and he literally dies right away My daughter and I were a bit like, ohhh no! Sad! But we went right on and kept turning the pages (hide spoiler)] I was not expecting to like this graphic novel as much as I did! It's darker than I had expected it to be I'm pumped to continue on with this series! Wow, so I had planned to pick up one of the three books I'm currently reading tonight, but instead my 6 year old begged me to read this Being that she has read all 8 installments (at the time of this writing) roughly 8 billion times, I decided to humor her She told me to let her know how many stars this one gets in the morning when she wakes up, and I'm excited that we've found a series to fangirl over together I promised my little folk that I would readgraphic novels this year, and it appears I've started right out the gate with a storyline that is of the highest quality! I loved this little graphic novel! My favorite is the pink bunny named Miskit :)So Emily's dad dies in a car wreck, Emily and her mom were in the car with him The book jumps ahead 2 years and Emily's mom takes her and her brother Navin and moves to and old family home out in the middle of no where When they are all cleaning the house, Emily finds this amulet She decides to keep it and it talks to her, I want one!

Not very many novels, let alone a graphic novel, stir up a visible emotional response from me (for example: something might be funny but I'll rarely laugh out loud.) This book, however, made me cry within the first 15 pages Now, that's an accomplishment! I'll admit though, I'm a bit of a softy when it comes to moms or husbands dying, so your mileage may vary with that.The story is a familiar one; a magical object passed down in the family contains enough power to save the world, and a young girl is now tasked with making the right decisions to save those she loves There is still plenty of originality intermixed that I didn't feel like I was reading the same old, same old I liked the combination of steampunkstyle additions, (robots, spaceships, rayguns and gadgets,) with classic fantasy characters, (like elves and other monsters.) That's something I haven't seen that often in middle grade books.Some of the character designs are odd; I don't understand why the mother's head is so long and skinny, but the fullcolor illustrations and backgrounds are gorgeous I love the bunny robot character and I didn't find either child protagonist annoying or too whiny Because of the beginning, I wouldn't recommend this for really young readers; there's a particularly harrowing scene that includes blood and death I think this would be a good segue if you're someone who's never read manga before, since this didn't feel wholly Japanese, but it also didn't feel completely Westernized either.This first volume was a really great setup for the series and it gave me just enough of a taste of things to come that I put the rest on hold at the library right after I finished I look forward to continuing this story. BOOK #2 READ FOR BELIEVATHON ROUND 2.representation: asian american author[trigger warnings are listed at the bottom of this review and may contain spoilers]★★★★.5THIS WAS SO GOOD It's such an imaginative story with incredible illustrations I can't wait to read !trigger warnings: car accident, death of loved ones, creepy illustrations.
