{My thoughts} – This book was amazing. I mean, who doesn’t love a book that blasts them back into a retelling of a favorite story. Chase and Ava are at a flea market and they end up getting their hands on a suitcase. The suitcase seems to be somewhat magical. They touch an object in it that looks like a dragon doorknob and the next thing they know is they are dropped smack dab into the Medieval Times.

In this book they are meant to correct somethings that had happened that shouldn’t have, or stop something from happening that may have happened. Once they start to understand where they are and what is going on they figure out what to do and in the end it seems like everything works out in the end. Once things are done on that adventure they figure out how to get back into their time. Once they are home they both agree not to tell their parents until they figure out what is going on and what to do about everything that is going on in terms of time jumping.

I highly recommend this book for any child that is just beginning to read and wanting to expand their imagination. It is a nicely written book with some illustrations that help to further explain the storyline.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
