The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott has a lot of magic and fantasy elements that will appeal to anyone in fifth grade and up. The reading level may be a little high for some ten year olds, but if they enjoy fantasy, then this is a book they are sure to enjoy. Reading it with a teacher or parents would be exciting because the story contains characters that have shown up in mythology and other tales throughout the ages. It was fascinating to see the way the story came together. I thought that the twins, Josh and Sophie, were both very likeable. I like how they tried to take care of each other, and it was great to witness their special bond. I was fascinated by the Shadowrealm and had a clear image in my mind of the setting and its unique features. The story has lots of adventure and elements that will keep the movie in your mind playing for hours. This is the first in a series, and I look forward to reading the rest of them!
