In the beginning of summer, Breonna tried to prove to Blake that there was gold at the end of a rainbow. Instead of gold, they found a flowing rainbow that lands them in the house of Lucky the leprechaun whose pot of gold is full of super powers. It is Halloween and Breonna is trying to prove to Blake that there is such a thing as a moonbow, a rainbow at night. They are interrupted by their Mom who is taking them to their school's Halloween party. Blake is dressed as Batman and Breonna is dressed as Bat Girl. The party is so much fun that they barely notice the rain outside. Breonna wakes Blake in the middle of the night to show him the moonbow she found. Maybe this moon bow would take them to Lucky. They wanted to show their costumes to Lucky. They wake Lucky up and Breonna gets the power of invisibility and Lucky sends the kids on a trip to the past. I GIVE THIS BOOK: 4 out of 5 stars I received a .pdf version of this book so I do not know what the coloring and pictures look like throughout the book, but if it is anything like the cover, I would take a guess and say it would be good enough to add an extra 1/2 star. This book turns things around. No guns or bombs. Instead, it is helping a "witch" live during the Salem Witch Trials. This book was educational and entertaining. In this book, the kids used all their powers to do the right thing without putting anyone in danger. I hope the author continues with this type of story in book 7. You can read this book to your child over and over and continue to teach your kid about our history. I am excited to see what adventures await for Blake and Breonna as I continue to read the series. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself! Until next time, live life one page at a time!

Book 6, Ghosts and Goblins of Rainbow Road, has a holiday feel as it is set at Hallowe'en. There haven't been any rainstorms of note (no rainbows) since summer and Blake, and his younger sister, Breonna (the real grandchildren of Thornhill), are excited to once again hop on the Rainbow Road, a multi-colored twisty-curvy stream like a waterslide ride, found at the end of the rainbow, to ride to the green bed of Lucky Leprechaun, the keeper of the Pot of Gold. These gold coins are not for money...they empower the recipient of the coin to have a special ability to do super-power things! Breonna is given the power of Invisibility, but they will need all their previous super powers of X-ray Vision, Super Hearing, Strength, Truth, and Invincibility, to help change some history in Old Salem, MA on Hallowe'en Night in 1692. Using these powers they are able to save Mary Bradbury from burning at the stake as a witch, as well as save a little boy who fell into the basement of an old abandoned house. If you check out Mary Bradbury, you will find that she was mysteriously saved from her death. No one knows what really happened to change this outcome, but it did. Makes you wonder if Blake and Breonna could be real? Blake and Breonna are not perfect children, but they want to be good, as do most real children. The lessons they are learning from their parents, along with the lessons learned by using Lucky's gold coins, are gently taught to the reader in an environment that is fanciful and exciting. The illustrations are in Black & White, which allows the more creative child to color them as s/he imagines they should look. This is nice touch that draws children even closer into the stories and lets them take pride of ownership in the book. These would make great gifts as one volume, or as a set, for children in the primary grades who can begin to read the stories to themselves and younger siblings. They do follow a chronological order as each new book builds on the one before, so those who buy might want to start with Book 1 and work their way forward. Looks like the new generation has a new set of heroes!
