Secret of the Portals By Brant Waldeck Book Review

Xander and I have started reading together every night. We used to read alot when he was little, but now that I do alot of reading with him in the day for school, we have slacked on the bedtime reading. 

He really wanted me to read this book with him. 

The Secret of the Portals (The Adventures of Bruten & Tommy, #1)

Bruten Stone and Tommy Staunton discover secret portals to other worlds... right in their own town! It's an adventure like no other that leads them to amazing worlds and untold riches, but it soon becomes clear that they will have to defend the worlds from those that would like nothing more than to exploit them for profit. As two recently graduated 5th graders, are they up for the challenge?

About the Author. 
Brant Waldeck lived in a small town in rural Ohio until he was fourteen years old. From there he moved to a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. After high school, he attended Miami University (OH) and graduated with a degree in marketing. After five years working at advertising agencies, Brant set out on his own to be a freelance designer. His business evolved into a successful marketing agency. His life revolved around creativity, but it wasn’t until he had kids of his own that Brant began to explore the idea of writing. Brant credits his children as the key to his creative inspiration. The minds of children see possibilities that adults tend to shut out. The trick to being creative... never stop thinking like a kid.

Xander so far really loves this book. It's a long book, so we read about 3 pages a day, and he begs for more. He likes the adventure and feels like it's a great fit for kids his age.

  Disclosure: I was given a copy of Secre of the Portals to help with my review. All opinions are 100% mine.
