Amelia's Book Room: Leven Thumps & The Gateway To Foo

OK, folks, it's time for some fantasy. In Obert Skye's whimsical series, we meet Leven, a fourteen-year-old orphan living with his terrible aunt and uncle. He doesn't fit in well at school, his guardians hate him, and he's made fun of for the odd white streak in his otherwise midnight black hair. There's definitely something different about him... point proven when a tiny, strange creature named Clover appears and tells him he's got a destiny: to save not only this world, but another one, too!

We also get to know Winter Frore, a girl living not far away. There's something different about Winter as well; I don't want to spoil much, but let's just say things can get a little chilly around her! She doesn't know how, but she knows she has to find Leven, and she sets off to do just that. They begin their journey to save our world and the world of Foo from the evil Sabine. This is a really fun series, starting with Leven Thumps and the Gateway To Foo, if a little bit confusing at times.

You can visit the book website here. (I love the site music!) I hope you enjoy this week's book! I'm gonna try to find you guys a good spooky book for Halloween next week. What is everyone dressing up as? I will be a Sorceress! Happy reading!
