Reinhold writes in a descriptive prose that allows the reader to experience places and events through the character’s eyes and emotions. His descriptions make the reader want to come back for more and he leaves you at the end of this book with just a hint of Ryann’s next adventure. This book is written in such a way that even a younger child could enjoy having it read to them aloud if they are not able to read it themselves yet.
Be sure to take a look at the author's website for all sorts of fun stuff related to the book and lots more info. See my FIRST Post for a little about the author and the First Chapter. Finally you can buy your own copy and some for the youngsters you know at the Ryann Watters Website
