This week I read The Last Timekeepers Arch of Atlantis by Sharon Ledwith.
Here is a short summary about this adventurous book:
When Amanda, Treena, Drake, Jenson, Ravi are caught in a major food fight at school, they are given the choice of suspension or yard duty. A two-week crash course in landscaping leads the kids to discover a worn-down stone arch buried in an overgrown backyard. Instead of a forgotten lawn ornament, it turns out to be an ancient time portal to the lost country Atlantis. Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers—legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from an evil force called Belial—the five children, along with two adults- Melody and Professor Lucas – aka John, are sent on the adventure of their lives to save the Earth from an uncertain future. The Timekeepers’ first mission lands them in England in 1214, where they must find Robin Hood and his band of “merry teens” before history is turned upside-down.
Here’s what I like about this book:
This book had so many funny quirks that I read over and over such as when Ravi’s fake hand starts smacking Jenson so that he would not get himself thrown in “jail”. Or when Robin Hood took care of the second soldier attacking them by using his sword to slice a huge hole in the soldier’s pants. The resolution was great and explained some things. I think others should read this book because it will cheer anyone up in seconds.
Next week I will be reading The Girl Who Remembered Horses by Linda Benson.
