The Owlstone Crown by X. J. Kennedy, Michele Chessare

This afternoon would be great for skating, but Timothy and Verity Tibbs must work in a frozen field, digging parsnips for mean Maw and Paw Grimble to boil into bad-tasting medicine. What a life! When private detective Lewis O. Ladybug brings news from another world, everything changes. Gran and Gramp are in trouble, and it's up to Timothy and Verity to rescue them. Led to Other Earth by the tiny detective, they meet a crew of unlikable characters, make some amazing new friends, and find themselves in the midst of one adventure after another.

As a first and second grade teacher I always read this book to my children. Every class has loved it. It is magical with rich vocabulary, imaginative story, and beautiful expression. Novelist/poet X.J. Kennedy has written a classic!

I cannot tell you how many times I read this book growing up. It was always such a favorite of mine - these two children being transported to a magical world where they must rescue their grandparents from an evil dictator. Simply marvelous - buy it for the bright gem of a child in your own life!

I received this book when i was only 8 years old and 13 years later i still own it and still adore it! Timothy, Verity, and Lewis Ladybug are my alltime favorite characters and I just wish there was some way to make this book more known!

The Owlstone Crown by X. J. Kennedy is one of my favorite books ever. It is about a brother and sister (twins), Timothy and Verity, that are orphans. One day, a messenger comes to them to tell them that their beloved grandparents are still alive... and in another world! Against the ladybug's wishes, Timothy and Verity decide to follow the ladybug back to his world to find their grandparents. They are transported to a once-beautiful place that has turned ugly by a power seeking dictator. Timothy and Verity find adventure, friends, the beauty that was once the land of Mossflower, and the courage to change a muck-infested world... This book is incredible.
