Just in time for Christmas, here’s the perfect gift for your son, daughter or grandchild.

I’m talking about LANDON SNOW and the Island of Arcanum (Barbour), by R. K. Mortenson, book three in the Landon Snow series, following LANDON SNOW and the Auctor’s riddle, and LANDON SNOW and the Shadows of Malus Quidam.

Last year I gave a copy of book one to my favorite nine year old, and she absolutely loved it. But don’t think that this is only for the kiddies; this is a book for all ages... even old curmudgeons like me. Pick up a copy for each of the kiddies and another one for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.

From the back cover:


At least that’s what Landon discovers when a few drips from a library ceiling turn into a powerful waterfall. As the waters rise, so do the perils in this latest adventure of Landon Snow, as he and his sisters—Holly and Bridget—are transported out of the library and into another world.

In this high-seas voyage, the Snow children join a quest to find the Island of Arcanum, where the animals of Wonderwood are imprisoned and the evil shadows of Malus Quidam lurk. With the help of some old friends—a horse named Hardy, a girl named Ditty, and the poet/prophet Vates—Landon seeks to unlock the island’s dark secrets and escape with the animals intact. But first he must navigate his way through uncharted waters and battle the villainous Arcans.

Can Landon and his friends rescue the animals from deep within the island’s stronghold?

Are the winds in Landon’s favor, or will this prove to be his final voyage?

Hi David. Thanks for the heads-up on this book--sounds very good. Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. 'Tis the busy season, eh? I'm kinda overwhelmed with stuff but enjoying the season anyway.

Vicki, thanks for dropping by. You would absolutely love this book too. The pages are thick and cut uneven, and the hardcover binding is spectacular, which gives it the feel of a collector’s addition.

I pray all is well with you, my friend!
