    Accessible fantasy for elementary school

    This book follows the conventions of the fantasy genre. It's at an OK level for 3rd graders. The story involves three kids who follow a secret staircase to the land of Droon. Once there, they encounter dangerous creatures, a princess named Keeah, talking spiders, and other "fantastic" beings and happenings. The kids have to help Keeah, and the story goes from there. The ending leaves open the possibility for the subsequent other books in the series.

    A great choice

    We chose this book for my son who is in first grade reading at a second grade level. He is progressing quickly so I thought he'd enjoy the story and he did.

    Great series!

    I found this set of books in the bookstore and immed knew my 1st and 2nd grade boys would love it. Story along lines of Harry Potter.....Cronic of Narina but in a series. My sons love to collect the books in the series. We've gone through Magic Treehouse....and they're done with the first 3 books in the Droon series already. They seem to like this one much more than the treehouse books-they're done with one of these books in a weekend (Treehouse would take them a week to finish)....and it really seems to hold their attention-they end up not wanting to put it down. My 2nd grader sat down with book 1 and didn't stop reading until he finished the entire book! Also my boys don't claim this series "is for babies" like they do these days with anything Harry Potter. Perhaps the Potter line has been overcomercialized??

    This is a great book!

    I like it a lot because it seems like there is so much magic. I'm reading it by myself.

    Great Book

    It's a mix of Harry Potter, Chronicals of Narnia, and The Magical Tree House. The only problem about this book is it seems to be reading leval 2.1 Its to easy. Atleast they have over a dozen books in the series to make it better.
