{Synopsis} – Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line, Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

In the fourth book in this fast-paced series, Tag, Skyla, and Blaze continue their journey in search of the next piece of the Ember Stone. The magical map leads them across the poisonous Bubbling Bog, all the way to the fairy-filled Lullaby Lake. As they travel east though, the friends are also moving closer and closer to Thorn’s dark territory. What will happen when Tag finally comes face-to-face with his enemy? This action-packed series makes a great introduction to fantasy and quest stories for younger readers. Jeremy Norton’s realistic black-and-white artwork appears on every page!

{My thoughts} – Tag, SKyla and Blaze are on another adventure. They are off to get all the pieces of the ember stone so that they can get it put back together as quickly as possible. They need the stone in one piece so that they can use it to attempt to defeat Thorne. They are not sure they will have an opportunity to be successful if they do not get the stone.

The new adventure takes the to Lullaby Lake. The three friends quickly learn that things are definitely different at the lake. There are some feisty fairy people that live under the water, that were charged with the sole responsibility to keep all evil and bad away from the stone that they have.

Will they give the three friends the other piece of the stone? Will they be able to defeat Thorne? Only time and some more reading will tell.

I think this is a great series and that any children will enjoy adding it to the library. I think that it is a fast paced, easy to comprehend series. The only downfall is that I think in order to follow the story line that it is essential to begin the series at the beginning.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
