This series is engaging for children and adults. It is a good classroom read aloud or a great gift for a child you know. It is fantasy based yet full of mystery and danger.

 The book &ldquo;The Dark is Rising&rdquo; was a Literary text that wrote by:Susan Copper. In this book story begins on a snowy Midwinter's  Eve in the Stantons' household in the village of Huntercombe, where Will awaits his eleventh birthday, living his apparently ordinary life. He goes out with his brother James to feed their pet rabbits, before the two of them head out to Dawson's Farm, passing Rooks' Wood and heading along Church Lane. Both of them notice that the animals in the vicinity - the rabbits and the  rooks - are nervous and fearful, and for no apparent reason. Whilst on Church Lane, Will notices a man watching them from  the side road, apparently a tramp, who disappears from sight. Arriving at the farm, they meet Old George and Frank Dawson.  When James mentions the tramp, they catch Mr Dawson's attention. After hearing the description, he states mysteriously that  'the Walker is abroad', and that 'this night will be bad, and tomorrow will be beyond imagining.' Realising that it is soon to be  Will's eleventh birthday, Mr Dawson hands him an object; a flat circle quartered by two crossed lines, made from iron. He tells  him to keep it with him at all times, and not to tell anyone about it. I think this book is for childs that is 12 years old and up  because I think some of the word in this book maybe confusing for the younger kids. by: Xinyu 8-409

While watching "The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising" movie over the Thanksgiving Holiday, I noticed that it was based on a series of books. So i looked it up and decided to give the series a shot. This version of the complete series is a great buy. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. Totally worth giving it a shot!

I am 43 and have repeatedly read Mrs. Cooper's series since I was eight. I could not begin to tell you how many times! These books have always not only satisfied, but nurtured my sense of wonder, adventure, and courage that follow me in all aspects of my life.
