Overview

Dumb old curse... When Dad unwittingly unleashes upon himself a deadly and ancient curse, it's up to 12-year-old Chloe Walker to come to the rescue. Once the entire family is deep within the Indian rainforest, Chloe and her local friend, Sotol, head out to find a cure for the illness that threatens her father's life. To find the Golden Seed, Chloe and Sotol risk life and limb, facing ruthless poachers, desolate elephant burial grounds, and the fantastical wilds of nature. With a magical amulet, arguing gibbons, a mama tiger on the run, and an impossible rope bridge that only a nut would try to cross-Chloe is on the adventure of a lifetime. Decode the map, find the seed, and defeat Yama. No problem... Yeah Right!

As a child, KF Ridley was labeled as the kid with too much energy. Desperately, she did her best to conform to the ways of the world. Later, she realized that she had to be herself. As a result, her imagination went wild.

These days, KF funnels her energy, exuberance, and high-jinx into her debut series, The C. Walker Adventures, beginning with, The Curse of Yama. There's no telling where her mind will take her--and you--next.

KF lives with her family in Mississippi, with three dogs, 2 miniature horses, a miniature donkey named Dobey and a pot belly pig named Baxter.

By: KF Ridley Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson When Chloe's dad unleashes The Curse of Yama upon himself ,it's up to Chloe to find the cure. Chloe and her friend Sotol , set out on an unforgettable adventure through the jungles of India, riding elephants , and dealing with poachers , they must decode the map and find the seed before time runs out and the curse kills her dad. This is a Wonderful book , great for kids , it's full of adventure , animals , and magic. And the illustrations are amazing! My 12 year old loved it , and being that Chloe is 12 years old made her feel more into the adventures also. We both enjoyed this book , and can't wait for the next book by KF Ridley.

"THE CURSE OF YAMA" BY K.F. RIDLEY I was intrigued from the very beginning, K.F. Ridley has written a story that middle-graders and even adults will absolutely love and cherish. I really love the fact that she uses animals and messages about how it's wrong to poach and hunt them. The addition of Chloe's ability (which I refuse to give away :)) when she receives an amulet from Tumera lends just enough of a magical quality to the story that I can imagine all children wishing they had one! I know I do and I'm a grown up! Chloe and her friend Sotol are some of the greatest heroes ever and along with their elephant friend Goesha, this story is simply enchanting. All kids dream of traveling to far off lands and having exciting adventures and this book is one that promotes imagination! The fact this book has a precursor title called "The C. Walker Adventures," leads me to believe there is more to come, and I certainly hope so! -Kitty Bullard / Great Minds Think Aloud Book Club
