Camel Lot: A Misplaced Adventure by Karen Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Full Discloser. I am the author’s husband, her better half, her Muse if men were allowed to bemused.
The story is fun, Karen has put together something that parents will enjoy reading to their children. You’ll recognize many historical references which are always fun to read. Children ages 8-12 will be able to read it themselves. Camel Lot does a great job of speaking to children in an adult way without talking down to them.
The artwork, also created by Karen, is beautifully displayed throughout the book.
Description: Three siblings, Arty, Lance and Gwen, set off for their Mother’s forbidden flower garden to play. They dream up the grand kingdom of Camel Lot with a courageous king, a daring knight and a princess with a pink magical unicorn. But somewhere else in the garden, trouble is brewing. It’s not their orange tabby, Marlin; it’s the neighbor-boy, Dwayne.
Camel Lot is a fantasy adventure for bedtime or anytime. Written to be read aloud to children of any age or read alone by children ages 8-12. Approximately 3,400 words.
P.S. The next book, Bermuda’s Triangle, Bermuda longed to be part of the school band. She tried countless instruments, but couldn’t make any of them produce pleasing sounds. Her parents were ready to give up. Her music teacher was at her wits’ end. But, her friends had an idea.
