    Engaging read for younger Fantasy fans

    Younger readers (8-14) who like fantasy will enjoy this book. If they're not too critical, adults will enjoy it, too! The characters are well-drawn, if somewhat stereotyped. The situation is intriguing -- wouldn't we all like to discover a door into another reality -- and the magic is not overdone. I will probably watch for the sequel. This is not great literature, but it was a fun afternoon's read.

    Yes, boys, you will like this book!

    IF you enjoy fantasy, adventure, and excitement this book is for you. Much of it is about an 11 yr old boy, but features 3 other kids as well. There are some misspelled words and poor punctuation, but not enough to interfere. A teacher

    Very Good Book!

    Although I was just getting a few books that seemed interesting, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. It is written more for a younger audience, but is a wonderful story for any age. Mr. Newman is able to create within his words a world and group of characters that you come to know and like. His story is well written and one can easily become engrossed; losing track of the time while the story unfolds. I look forward to his next book in this series.

    Great Children's Fantasy

    Even though this is a children's fantasy, I enjoyed the story. The first couple of chapters are a little slow, but once they get into "Camelot" things really take off. I would say this is a great book for nine to sixteen year olds. There are elves, dwarves, witches, and wizards. The book has a very happy ending too. I recommend it!

    Awesome book!

    This book about Ben and Casey is very adventurous. I think that the second book should be more adventurous then this one. The gnomes werent in this one but the elves arent evil. I would recommend this to 3rd grade and up. Ben should be like a wizard but doesnt know it. Casey sure sounds beautiful. I think Meg and Joey should be elves and they think they're normal people.

    WOW!

    This is a GREAT Childrens fantasy story. My daughter, who is 10, LOVED this book so much she begged me to read it and I have to say, I really enjoyed it too! A real fast paced light read for an adult. Can't wait for the next one. :)
