Meet Gregory Slomba, Author of The Deliverers Series

Mrs. Robinson's 5th grade class meets children's author Gregory Slomba
Mrs. Robinson welcomes children's author, Gregory Slomba, into her fifth grade classroom to talk about his new book, The Deliverers: Order of the Crystal Lion. We always enjoy hanging out with the Deliverers, Eric, Stig, Kate, and Hallo, so it's awesome to see their story taking off. Check out our CBC meeting with these cool characters

The students had fun meeting Mr. Slomba, and a great time was had by all! Stop by The Deliverer's corner of the book block to read more about this exciting event. All eyes on Calendria...

Book 1: Read the reviews! 
Twelve year old Eric Scott is called by Stig, a talking owl, to journey to another world to save a fishing village from a band of bloodthirsty pirates. Once there, Eric discovers that delivering the town is but one of the problems he'll have to solve. 
Book 2: Read the reviews! 
For centuries, the Vynistri have been splicing lion DNA to the genes of their servants, the Chazum, using a device called the Machine. Now an army of Chazum and sympathetic Vynistri are waging a bloody civil war to overthrow the Vynistri's evil ruler, Chancellor Trelango. In their latest Assignment, the Deliverers--Eric Scott, Stig the owl, Kate Endria and Hallo Tosis the dwarf--are charged with putting an end to the fighting and restoring balance to the world. Aided by a secret society called the Order of the Crystal Lion, Eric and the rest of the Deliverers must overcome tragedy and loss to fight for freedom and equality. Spurring them on is the Order's belief that the long awaited Crystal Lion has arrived to deliver the world. Is it true, or will Trelango destroy them all?


Book 3: Read the reviews! NEW!
"From the mouth thou shalt hear The wisdom of far off lands. The way to truth is clear Head, then heart, then hands. Lastly, tail will point the way To the world's end. Then gold shall have its say And foretell the doom of men." With his dying breath, so spoke the last Dragon's Voice. Now, with no successor to impart the wisdom of the mythical Golden Dragon of Ang and children between the ages of 12 and 15 mysteriously disappearing, the Dragon Islands have been turned upside down. It is up to the Deliverers-Eric Scott, Stig the owl, Kate Endria and Hallo Tosis the dwarf-to unravel the clues they hope will lead to the missing children and the new Dragon's Voice. Meanwhile, the Fang, leader of the renegade Denchi Assassins, has harnessed the unearthly powers of the sparkling mist and is attempting to tip the balance of power in the Islands, and perhaps shred the very fabric of the universe itself. Will the new Dragon's Voice be revealed, or has the Golden Dragon of Ang abandoned the Islands to the Fang and the sparkling mist?
