Introducing the first book in the Marmalade series:  Gertrude’s Broken Wand.  Geared towards 2nd to 4th graders, this is a fun and engaging book for them and a fun book to read with them as a family as well.  Just in time for Halloween this book is very fitting to the Halloween season.

This new book was just released on 10/22 and I had the privilege of getting a signed copy to preview and review with my son and my nephew.  My son is in 1st grade and my nephew is in 4th.  My nephew had no problem breezing through the book chapter by chapter and was very engaged when doing so.  My son could do some of the reading, but preferred me to read the story to him.  Both of the boys enjoyed the the plot line of the book.

About the Book:  On an otherwise normal 4th grade school field trip, Rebecca gets separated from her classmates while trying to find the bathroom. But when she slips in the dark and falls down a hole, she ends up in the land of here, an enchanted kingdom that is suffering from a powerful curse…everyday is Halloween. But it’s not costumed trick-or-treaters that roam the land nor is it candy they want. Ghosts, ghouls, werewolves, skeletons and a host of other baddies, eager for a taste of warm flesh, have turned the once beautiful land into a spooky landscape. Unfortunately, Rebecca’s problems have only just begun for when she landed in here she also landed on Gertrude, the kingdom’s witch, breaking her wand and the one chance to left the curse. Now Rebecca must get Gertrude’s wand fixed, avoid getting eaten (or worse), and find a way home all before the sun sets. Because here needs a real name or it, and everything inside, will cease to exist forever.

If your kids love Goosebumps, the Wayside Schools, and Dragon Slayer Academy, they are sure to love Marmalade: Gertrude’s Broken Wand

Will Rebecca get Gertrude’s wand get fixed on time?
