Reviewed by Rhonda Fischer for Readers' Favorite "Talee and the Fallen Object" is an adventure about an 8 year old named Talee. The book starts out with a little about Talee, how to pronounce her name and that she loves to read. Talee lives on the planet Gala where it doesn't rain much and it has two moons. The book has a small table of contents and has big print for young readers. See what Talee does to hunt for the treasure and find out what the fallen object is, an object that fell from the backpack of a mail flyer. She was so curious that she had to go and see what it was. It also has coloring pages for youngsters to color. A Fantasy Adventure Coloring Book is also available as a coloring book for children. The coloring pages have big black bold lines in which kids can color to their delight and make the pages come alive. The coloring book and the story complement each other. The book is very light in weight for traveling. If your child has started reading on their own, this would make a nice adventure story with a hands on coloring book to make it their own. It is a little girl who is not afraid to discover her surroundings and bring to a child a whimsey feel of imagination. I loved these books when my kids were little. I would read a page and let them read a page. This is a great beginner reading book.
Eight-year-old Talee lives on the planet Gala, which has two moons. She loves to read and write about great adventures, especially treasure hunts. Her favorite colors are purple and yellow, and her favorite food is wild puffy yellow muffins with pink icing, which her mother fixes every weekend. Gala is an amazing planet because the land floats in the air. People get from place to place by Calpas, which are big, friendly, flying animals. Early one Saturday morning, Talee has finished her puffy muffins and is reading one of her favorite Captain Jewel books about a bag of treasure that was hidden in a lost city when she sees a mail flyer go by outside her window and something falls out of the mail flyer’s bag. The object lands on a small floating landmass and starts to smoke when it hits the ground. Thinking it might be a bag of treasure, Talee takes one of her family’s Calpas to look for it. Will she find it? What will it be? Like McManus’s Labyrinth’s Door: Anyia—“Dream of a Warrior,” Talee and the Fallen Object is a fantasy adventure tale, but for a slightly younger set. In addition to the story book, there is an accompanying coloring book for youngsters with an artistic bent. It begins with a page which starts the adventure, and as the child looks at each scene and colors it in, all the scenes together will make up Talee’s story. At the end, there are some pages where the readers can write their own Talee adventure based upon the pictures which have been colored. Children who like to think about living on or visiting other planets will especially enjoy these books.
