Bookworm Buzz

Dear Readers,

Book Three of the Amulet series, The Cloud Searchers, by Kazu Kibuishi, continues the story of Emily the Stonekeeper and her quest to save her family. This is a just right book for many fourth graders, but the story will not make sense if you have not read the first two books in the series. The story opens with Prince Trellis and Luger, facing the realization that they have failed the Elf King and face the ultimate punishment, death! Emily and Navin have been reunited with their mom, who is not very trusting of Leon, Emily's teacher. The Star Wars connections are very strong and I can't help but imagine that Leon is very similar to Obi Wan Kenobi. There is even some "Jedi like" training in this book and there is a also the introduction of a character who resembles Han Solo. Overall, I enjoyed this book and am anxiously awaiting Book 4. Let me know what you think!

Read on readers,

Mrs. W
