    Must-Read Fantasy Children's Tale

    The authors have done a phenomenal job with their introduction of Godwin/the Boy Magician, the new children¿s series with its first book, ¿The Rainbow Builders.¿ This intergalactic fantasy children¿s tale is not only a fun read, but it raises the bar on fantasy adventures... this is not your average heroes and villains story. This is a magical and timely journey which unfolds in a whole other galaxy. A mixed wizard¿s brew with an exceptional line-up of original characters. The best part is discovering there are no limits in Godwin¿s open playground, the Universe. A must read for both young readers and the young at heart!

I don¿t think I¿ve had as much fun reading a story like this since my first exposure to The Wizard of Oz, and in some ways I liked it even better than The Lord of the Rings. I know this series was meant for young adults and children. But as an adult I enjoyed it thoroughly. What imagination! And what terrific characters. I¿m glad to know this is a series and just won¿t be one book. I¿ll look forward to t

    THE RAINBOW BUILDERS is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in recent years. It has some of the best qualities of the Harry Potter series combined with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and yet it has a unique character and story line all its own. It has a terrific sense of humor -- some parts I laughed out loud. I can hardly wait to read the sequels....I think they come out soon.
