A World Beyond Video Games


The Dragon Box by Katie W. Stewart

If you love video games, The Dragon Box by Katie W. Stewart might be the next fantasy read for you. James is friends with the eccentric, but friendly old man next door, Mack. On one of the strange visits to see Mack, James is given a new video game. It has no screen or normal controls. But when he sits on his bed to give it a try, it takes him into a world beyond his dreams. Literally.

James is transported into a new world in which a dragon needs his help to save the kingdom from an evil witch. James is the unlikely hero, and has to figure a way to save the day. But he has to make some choices that help him realize, there is more to being a hero than being able to wield a sword. And the reset button might not work.

I was surprised on how much I enjoyed this story in the end. Stewart has a way of charmingly describing the action in a gentle, funny way. The relationship between Mack and James is a classic wizard and boy hero joy that has you smiling until the end. Between the video game twist and the world of fantasy brought to life, I was cheering for James to figure out the solution for each challenge he endured. This is a great read for any child that loves adventure, fantasy, and video games.

***** Five Star Rating
The Dragon Box is available as a Kindle edition at Amazon.com.


About Tiffany Turner

I am a teacher by day, writer during the evening and weekends. I've written a children's fantasy series called the Crystal Keeper Chronicles. I've learned a lot as an Independent author. I want to share that now through blog posts, interviewing fellow authors, and reviewing other children's books. If you don't see it out there, build the blog yourself. I'm hoping to create a resource for people to find quality children's books that don't always fall along the lines of mainstream.
