    Children's author Marty Mokler Banks has hit a home run with The Adventures of Tempest Serena This new chapter book for kids that is sure to keep them turning the pagesit kept me turning mine Exciting adventures with Tempest in exotic lands are juxtaposed with Serena's attempts back home to save her sister's seat on the schoolbus Sprinkle in a little magic and combine that with all of the characters finding ways to overcome their fears and respect their own strengths and ualities and you get a story that is entertaining and compelling A must read for boys and girls age 7 and up

    An interesting conundrum It was well written with solid characters fun episodes and lessons to be learned but I almost had to read this as an adult; there were too many interesting adult level things going on I'd definitely give it a try on your chapter book reader who's bored with Ramona and that ilk but isn't ready for the intensity of a middle grade yet It's a gentle book the euivalent of a Mr Rogers episode all sweetness and light on top but a bunch of powerful subtle things going on underneathThe two characters Tempest and Serena are twin sisters One Tempest is tempestuous; the other Serena is shy On the first day of school Tempest rebels she's not going back Having obtained a magic flashlight she makes a wish to have a forever summer sprouts wings and flies off leaving behind her sister Serena to cope with all the responsibilities here represented by having to defend Tempest's empty bus seat lunch seat etc from a school bullyI think I've been in too many college literature classes to read that straight on Anytime you see twins you have to suspect that the characters are really one person split in two Or in this case perhaps an imaginary friend Is Tempest real or not? The mom acts like it's not important that Tempest one of her daughters is gone For months And the way that Serena has to defend the empty places where Tempest isn't like her lunch seatit seems like something my daughter would have done at eight ish when she loved an imaginary friendIn the end I don't know some people acted as though Tempest were real; others not I think it's not meant to be figured out so much as appreciated At that age what's real is what's in front of you even if it only comes out of your imagination Read on a literal level it seems impossible and almost sad the wild sister comes home I got the sense that she was foolish to go even though she had such great adventures; she had such a time of it getting back But looking at it as though Tempest were an imaginary friend of course your imaginary friend has to come home; your imagination has to focus on the here and now sometimes too and it can certainly go haring off whenever it wants toI think that what it comes down to is that I'm too old too adult to be able to judge this through a kids' eyes Normally it isn't a problem I love it when a kids' book takes me away from the adult world Ahhhh it's nice to lay all that adultness aside But this? You never get to lay that responsibility aside so it's not a perfect kids' book for an adult reader but I can't tell you whether it's a perfect kids' book for a kid I suspect it is for the right kind of kid

    Tempest and Serena are twins One searches for adventure while the other is content to go to school After receiving magic batteries for her flashlight Tempest takes off for a warmer climate far away from the drudgery of school Serena stays behind and promises to save Tempest her seat on the school bus that she rides every day Tempest sends messages to her sister as she travels to the far corners of the world using her magic batteries while Serena fends off a bossy schoolmate determined to take Tempest’s seat on the school bus The story has great twists and turns as the sisters discover themselves and is a delightful read for children and parents helping young readers explore new worlds

    I got this book to read out loud with my niece We just finished it and we both loved it She loved the sisterfriends drama and also the parts about Hong Kong and the horse race And the hairy eyeballs of the lady down the street that part made her laugh out loud This is now tops on my list for elementary girls' birthday presents

    Delightful children's book This is a wonderful story that held my son's attention Every child and parent can relate to the challenges and the mixed emotions the twins encounter The story explores many feelings providing parents with an opportunity to discuss them with their child I highly recommend this book

    It seems sweet and simple but is very powerful and yet easy to read Loved how it touched on some big stuff like loyalty bullies and hope Also really interesting to see where the adventurous sister went on her journeys Inventive and fast paced
