Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janice DeLong
Relieved that their friend Mr. Leery is recovering slowly, Natalie, Penny, and Luke, Keyholders who have been charged with guarding the border between the realm of the Boggart Queen and their backyards, have earned the right to bask in their recent victory. However, the rest comes to a screeching halt when the three fifth graders realize that the hedge has been breached and the evil queen herself is loose in their world. Little do they know how close she is to dominating their lives until they discover exactly who has been overshadowed by her powers. Changelings seem to be at every turn, and only the most ingenious plots will free friends and authority figures from the dark host. Although Mr. Leery is improving, he is of no real assistance, so the children must act independently. This fourth title in the "Keyholders: series includes more humor, more slapstick messes, and slightly different alliances than book three. Middle readers will move quickly through the easy-to-read text while doubtless imagining what their lives would be like with links like Kirin, Buttercup, and Dracula. Reviewer: Janice DeLong

Meet the Author

MARCIA THORNTON JONES enjoys reading more than anything else. As a teacher, her favorite part of the school day was sharing books with her students. It was that love of reading that drew her to writing. She wanted to write the same kinds of stories that she and her students enjoyed reading. One afternoon she mentioned to the school librarian that she’d always had an interest in writing. The librarian, Debbie Dadey, shared a common desire to write stories that would encourage reading skills while promoting a true joy of reading. The next afternoon, Marcia and Debbie met while their students were at lunch and began writing. That story, Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots, became the first book in their bestselling series, The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids.

Marcia lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, Stephen, and their two cats.

DEBBIE DADEY taught first grade before becoming a librarian. It was while teaching that she first realized how much she wanted to write a book for reluctant readers. Her first book, co-authored with fellow teacher Marcia Thornton Jones, was the result of a very bad day. Since then, Debbie and Marcia have collaborated on more than 125 books with sales of over forty million copies.

Debbie lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her husband, three dogs, and three children.

    The whole series was good!

    The whole Keyholders series was pretty good, with an interesting storyline. The four books are like small parts was one big story, but the series would have been a really good start for a longer series or a sequel series. They leave a question or two hanging, as well. One of the links, Buttercup, is hinted many times to be more than just a rat, but she refuses to tell her true identity. One of the other links will say, "Go on, tell them." But Buttercup ignores them and changes the subject. I was hoping we'd find out what was going on before the series ended, but no such luck. It will be a mystery forever. That annoys me.
