Arlo Fitch and the Valley of Fire

Loyal, Brave, Kind and True – 
Keeper of the Old and New –
I Guard the Wild,
Defend the Weak,
Mark the Path
And Virtue Seek.
Forrest Spirits Hear Me Now
As I Speak My Ranger’s Vow.

Epic. This middle-grade adventure keeps you on the edge of your seat through its entirety. We got in our Owl Crate months ago, and we just got to read it over Memorial Day Weekend.

Srsly? How did this fall to the bottom of my TBR pile?

Arlo is my kind of kid- “if you don’t have a plan b, you don’t have a plan.” I agree. If you have a middle grader (or younger) who is into magical realism, this is an excellent Summer read, kind of like Gravity Falls.

This is the first in a three book series and for those people who love Podcasts, you can listen to the author on his podcast- Launch which is all about launching this book.

Please note that I purchased this book from Amazon without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

Verdict- buy
