The Emerald Tablet

By P.J Hoover

Summary
Benjamin Holt figured it was going to be a normal summer, doing awesome stuff with his friend, Andy Grow, like using their telekinesis powers to lift things. But boy, was he wrong! One day, he watches his mother get swallowed whole by a picture in the hall. That same day, his mirror talks to him. By mid-afternoon, he's at summer school learning about the lost continents, Lemuria and Atlantis. He also discovers that he's not human. he's a telegen. Benjamin and his friends Iva, Andy, Gary, Heidi, and Jack the Nogical are prophesied to find three keys in order to save the world. Their only problem is, they are not aloud to leave Mu, the capital city of Lemuria.
This is an AWESOME book about five ( Jack isn't included, he's a nogical.) great friends, on a great adventure. It's in bookstores October 28th, 2008.

Why I liked it
Step aside, move down, you unworthy Newberry Award winning books, and such! This book qualifies as the greatest, most AMAZING book in the history of books! I couldn't put it down. My problem is that I can't put it down as a book I read this summer to give to my teachers, because they wouldn't believe me, because it's not going to be published until October, and they like the lists in September. Drat.

Thanks for the great review! What if I mail your teacher an ARC? Then will they believe you?

OK, you Bookworms are awesome!

Great review! And for the record, a great book too. (Do you believe I read it? I was fortunate enough to also get an ARC.)

I love your blog! As a budding children's writer I value the hard work young readers put into reviewing my stories and the advice they give me, so I can become a better writer. I hope to read more of your wonderful reviews in the future. Your blog helps me to see what the competition is up to!
