Nnewts: Escape from the Lizzarks
A little hero faces big challenges in the first book of this totally unique fantasy-adventure series.
The first book in the Nnewts series follows the story of Herk, a lovable Nnewt who longs for stronger legs, something his mother and father wish they could give him. When his quaint village is attacked by the reptile Lizzarks, he's forced to flee his home and leave behind the only life he's ever known. Now, all alone and on the run, Herk navigates a dangerous world filled with strange …
This is a fun, quick, entertaining book. I love the graphics and the story. Herk is the perfect hero. I was cheering for him the whole time. The author did a good job of not getting too wordy with the story. What I mean by this is that he did not use a lot of big words or too much description, which for the age range he was going for the attention span of these younger readers is still short so less is more in this case. Plus the author knows how to write for this age group as the Lizzarks are scary and mean but not too scary to give children nightmares. Again Herk is cool. I can't want to continue this journey with him and see what happens next.
