   Great early chapter book for kids
I am eager to talk to my summer book club group about this book. I am sure that they will love this book.
   Poorly written
Usually, we enjoy very much Scholastic books. This particular series is, however, very poorly written. Everything is written in the present tense. Vocabulary is basic : I have a 1st grader who gets to enjoy chapter books just fine and I want him to be challenged, not dumbed. I would recommend the excellent Dragon Masters or The Last Firehawk instead.
   First chapter book
Great series for early chapter readers! The pictures are so helpful and a great break for the readers! Highly recommended!
   Interesting storyline for young readers
My new son of 7 years old really enjoys this new series of the branches books. He speaks excitedly about how the characters find an object in a suitcase that helps them later on their journey to save the world. He reads over and over these books. He says that he now wants to read chapter books and prefers branches books because they have illustrations to go with the chapters.
   Another great branches title
My six-year-old son is a good reader, but it is hard to find books that challenge his reading while also keeping him engaged. For example, he likes the magic tree house, but is mostly for me to read to him. This book was just challenging enough, he likes the story and the more common pictures seem to keep him reading longer. Excellent book for the early chapter!
   Chapter book with lots of pics; time travel back to King Arthur's time
Well, it is impossible to say what is in the book without spoilers. Even travel time is a spoiler. In the book, a teenage brother and sister get a locked suitcase at the flea market. They open it to find several artifacts and one of them ends up carrying them back to King Arthur's time. Our eldest son, who turns 5 in a month, is too young for this. The suggested age range is 6 -- 8 years old. It is a chapter book with lots of pictures, but is ultimately a chapter book and not a picture book. A child should be prepared for a chapter book to get this. It also plays the traditional story of King Arthur, so that it is perhaps more interesting for children who have more background knowledge about history. I would say that 6-8 years is accurate with the stipulation that if the child can not read well on their own, then read it to them.
   More engaging than Magic Treehouse
This is a large chapter book that features a cute early print and pictures along with the text. A brother and sister find a suitcase at a flea market and one of the items has them travel back to the days of Arthur Pendragon. Advanced young readers may not know the story of King Arthur or understand the concept of messing with the timeline by changing things from the past, so that adults may want to read along or at least explain some of these concepts for children who are not super familiar with Sci - Fi. The Moral is Teamwork, and honestly, it was a more interesting story for the parents than the Magic Treehouse series, although there are clearly some parallels. The kids in this story are better together and are less prone to fighting than Jack and Annie in the MTS. This parental reader still does not love the approach of our parents, but otherwise it was a good story that the 7-year-old did not want to put down.
