MY TIDBITS


This is an action packed story, which never lets go.  I was especially glad to find such a good science fiction story for this audience, a genre which seems to be lacking lately. And this one does a fantastic job. It's great to jet into the future and see what time might hold for better or worse. The time jumps are fantastically well-planned, and the technology a lot of fun. Kids will dream of someday using some of these wonderful things themselves.

I can only recommend this for children ages 8+. Boys as well as girls will enjoy fantasizing about what the future might hold - exactly that what a book should do.
 
I give this a. . .



TWO THUMBS UP!!!



The Buzz About the Noah Zarc Books

Book 1: "Pease's strength as a storyteller lies in his ability to connect multiple time periods imaginatively, as well as Noah's excited, fast-paced narration." ~ Publishers Weekly
Book 1: "If I had read this book at age 10, I think it would have made me love SF just as much as reading Asimov did. If you like the non-stop action and humor of Rick Riordan's Olympians books, I think you'll also like Noah Zarc." ~ Sher A. Hart, book blogger and author
Book 2: "This is another great mind-bender. The wild time jump details are fabulously thought out and cause some unexpected results." ~ Michelle Isenhoff, Children's Author
Book 2: "A well-written, adventurous read for young readers and even adults, Noah Zarc blasts through space and into your imagination." ~ TKristufek, Amazon Reviewer
Book 3: "I was completely captured by the characters, the action and the issues and questions: set in fantasy but integrating concepts and engaging readers with a fun tale that teaches as it entertains." ~ Gaele, Amazon Reviewer
 

About the Author: D. Robert Pease

D. Robert PeaseD. Robert Pease has been interested in creating worlds since childhood. From building in the sandbox behind his house, to drawing fantastical worlds with paper and pencil, there has hardly been a time he hasn't been off on some adventure in his mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. Also, since the moment he could read, books have consumed vast swaths of his life. From The Mouse and the Motorcycle, to The Lord of the Rings, worlds just beyond reality have called to him like Homer's Sirens. It's not surprising then he chose to write stories of his own. Each filled with worlds just beyond reach, but close enough we can all catch a glimpse of ourselves in the characters he brings to life.

  1. Thanks for your great review of Noah Zarc, Tonja. You raise a good point about books in the science fiction genre for middle grade being quite sparse these days,although Julie Grasso's Cardamom series and Vacen Taylor's Starchild series come to mind as fitting this category. Books featuring magical realism (as always) seem to abound, but I worry this generation of kids will miss out reading the Isaac Asimov or Frank Herbert books, for example. My brother swears to this day that he was influenced by Isaac Asimov's theories with regards to the financial planning model he uses with his clients today. Amazing, isn't it? Thanks for joining us in the Noah Zarc Blog Tour.
