If Mom and Dad are Potterheads along with little Billy and Suzy, then you are going to love The Mannamong. And though this book is geared for readers around 8-12, this is a series full of wonder and magic that can be enjoyed by adults as well!

Lengyel has done the improbable by crafting a story that’s geared toward a younger audience without making it unreadable for us old folks. His writing style is perfectly suited to the job, staying relatively straight forward and accessible, while slipping in sly moments of humor and just enough maturity to keep adult readers involved.

My son reads all the time and it's hard to keep up with him. But when this book came in the mail, I handed it to him and didn't hear from him till dinner. He's eight and was reading at the table (a no-no in our house) so I told him to put it away until after. That's when he informed me that was his second time through and he was desperate for the second book! he read it one more time during his reading time before bed and has continued to return to it between other books. The next day he brought it to school. I hope some of his friend's parents buy it. It's so worth it and I'll be keeping an eye out for book 2!

My husband and I backed this on Kickstarter and we do not regret the pledge. The artwork is cute, friendly, and extremely approachable which contrasts with the story's rather dark premise. Furthermore, while Kali is a strong and competent protagonist, her vulnerability and confusion by her situation are palpable to a degree not often found in children's literature. Her predicament leaves her understandably bewildered and grief-stricken by the consequences of a something she never asked to be part of, but her wits and attention to detail help her find some measure of control in the madness.
