Kids’ Club Review by Ara: Dragon captives

Dragon captives / McMann, Lisa

The unwanteds quests book 1 ( dragon captives)
Rated 9 to 15 plus
It has been ten years since the final battle between Artimé and warbler island and the residents have had peace from that battle forward. Until now…. Alex, the head mage of Artimé has his hands full with his twin sisters, Fifer and Thisbe. They inherit a strange destructive magic which Alex must try to stop for the safety of his people and his sisters. It makes Fifer and Thisbes life boring and they always have nothing to do. When pans daughters and brothers ( they are dragons who appear in island of graves and so forward,) come back for their replacement wings because they have outgrown them, Fifer and Thisbe, ( and their friend Seth!) try to help the dragons and that leads them on a journey to the land of dragons. They must find a way out and stay together to keep safe as they find that this place is not safe at all. I rate this book 4.5 out of 5.

Top 10 Childrens Comics October 2017

Comics have some great crossovers going on, from books, movies, games and TV series.  Did you know that Poptropica was inspired by Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney – there’s a Big Nate Island!  The comics take you through the island adventures shown in the game.

If you were creating islands for your own game what would yours look like?
