This book is out of my normal genre yet with a newborn grandson it’s not too soon to compile a list for him to read.
Escapades for two brothers and their dogs, Thunder and Lightning on vacation in Germany with their parents fills The Secrets of the Castle. Gabe opens in first person with a scary ride on the Autobahn in their van, the Go Mobile. On their way to visit two castles he and his brother, Alex have studied in homeschool Gabe is certain a hidden tunnel connects the two. What transpires the rest of the trip will create vivid scenes in your mind. As mystery and intrigue follow the boys and their dogs the pages fly by. The camaraderie and competition between the brothers plus their parents’ parenting style add to the appeal of this novel.
I highly recommend The Secrets of the Castle for preteens. Aaron Zook will be on my list of authors for my grandson and the rest of his books in this series, Thunder and Lightning!
A copy of this book was given to me by The Book Club Network and the author for my honest review. Thank you!
