[Download] ➸ Britfield & the Lost Crown ➽ C.R. Stewart – Shiningweb.info
4.5 stars Britfield was a fantastic adventure, jam packed with the perfect amount of adventure and suspense to keep the pages turning One of the markets in dire need of content is fiction for advanced middle grade The targeted audience is 9 12 year olds, but coming in at just shy of 400 pages as book 1 in a series and with quite the sprinkling of advanced vocabulary it s one that would a appeal to the avid of young readers As someone who highly values parents reading to their kids though, I would also recommend it as a great story to read together at bedtime.Although mixed between causing mischief and protecting one another, the theme of friendship was a strong driving force to this adventure Even in the face of imminent danger, the characters were willing to face their fears and cause diversions to help one another I appreciated seeing this level of selflessness and heroism in such a positive light.I appreciated that this book encouraged an excitement for literacy, but I thought that the selected literature and authors discussed would be over the heads of young readers With exception to a single Narnia book, the other references were all adult classics Charlotte and Emily Bront , Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens although truly classical authors, I m not sure kids would really comprehend or follow the level of appreciation this book gives to them Overall this was an enjoyable read and one I d easily recommend as a great find for advanced middle grade readers I look forward to seeing how the author continues with the next book in the series, currently set to release in 2020 I received a copy of this book through FrontGate Media Thoughts and opinions expressed are mine alone.

Britfield The Lost Crown by C.R StewartBritfield The Lost Crown by C.R StewartA book to get lost in with a good cup of teathe British answer to everything Britfield The Lost Crown by C.R Stewart is billed as a kids book Yes and no Yes, it is an exciting read for kids, but no you don t want to miss it just because you re an older teen or adult Britfield sounded thrilling to me I like juvenile fiction It s usually clean this is and if it s good, has a great storyline that draws you through the book This is an excellent book for young and old C.S Lewis said, Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again He also said, No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally and often far worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond This is just such a book Don t let the first few chapters scare you away Yes, it does begin in a rather cliche way A couple of children living in an orphanage where the conditions and treatment are deplorable and horrific Mr Stewart is setting the stage for a larger than life escape plan The escape is just the beginning as the brilliant Detective Gowerstone begins the chase Each character and setting is portrayed with attention to detail which illuminated my imagination with sounds and images As the youngsters flee across the country, they find themselves in one precarious and dangerous situation after another I wonder if they could even take a calm breath through the whole of the journey They desperately need to avoid police, Detective Gowerstone, and someone else whom they don t even know is an enemy yet This book begs to be read, but I was glad to know that it is Book 1 of a series Britfield the Lost Crown can be read alone with a satisfying ending However, like Paul Harvey, I want to know The Rest of the Story Alas, it won t be released until Fall of 2020 You can bet I ll be watching for it Who will enjoy this book Anyone who enjoys adventure stories and mysteries If a child is old enough to listen to a chapter book, they re old enough This is a great book for homeschool families and for any kids interested in geography It s also a fast paced read for teens and adults who want a few hours of relaxing entertainment Can you tell I liked this book I received this book for free from the publisher for review. We enjoyed reading this book aloud together The adventures and narrow escapes kept us wanting to keep going until we reached the end, although shortly before everything was resolved we figured out the truth of what was happening My older children who were listening as I read thought the book was a bit over the top, and not realistic I agree but as far as an adventure story it was a lot of fun There was a fair amount of questionable language which I didn t appreciate, and several instances of violence I would recommend this book for boys who need an exciting story to draw them in and get them reading, especially, although girls will enjoy it, too.
