The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark

   Joshua and I always read a book together ever since he was a baby. Even though he can read now, it is something that we have always enjoyed doing together. We just finished reading The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark. It was a great book that we both really enjoyed reading. When we were done Josh asked whether there was another one.
   It is a very interesting concept that Ridley Pearson chose to write about. There are four kids who have had holographic characters based on them in The Magic Kingdom who guide guests with information about the park and events taking place that day. The main character is a boy named Finn. When he and the other kids go to sleep at night their subconscious crosses over into the park. They are given a mission by a man named Wayne who is one of the Disney Imagineers. The kids come up against classic villians like the pirates from the Pirates of the Carribean ride and Maleficent, the witch from Sleeping Beauty.
   This book is very well written and I enjoyed reading it as an adult as well. If you and your kids are Disney fans this is a cool book with places and characters you will remember from your trip to The Magic Kingdom.

  1. This sounds like a really good book. I believe Ridley Pearson was co-author of the "Peter & the Starcatchers" series as well, which is an excellent series! I'll have to check it out with Jackson. I bet he would like it, too. Thanks for the great review! :)

  2. Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry co-authored "Peter And The Starcatchers" series. We have "Peter and The Shadow Thieves" in the store. Thanks for the recommendation Amy. Josh and I will add this series to our list. Thanks. Angie ;)
