Kid Review: Saving Mim by Nan McAdam
Posted by brriske
Author Nan McAdam Announces The Release of Her MG/Teen Novel, Charlie Kadabra, Last of the Magicians – Saving Mim
Des Moines, IA – Charlie Kadabra, Saving Mimwill begin a series of action/fantasy books for ages ten and up, by Nan McAdam.
The first book in the series, Saving Mim, tells the story of Charlie Kadabra, abandoned as a baby in another world, without magic. He discovers he’s the last of a breed of magicians who were guardians of his native world called Mim. All the magicians are gone, killed by the evil Dr. Pi, who wants to destroy Mim and all the magic, and rule the new World of Chaos.
The book is filled with magical, delightful characters; dragons, fairies, a white rabbit, mermaids and mermen, and magical jewels that have special powers only Charlie can use to save Mim. You’ll find yourself routing and cheering for Charlie, and clapping your hands when he finds ways to annoy and destroy the evil Dr. Pi.
James B. Hoke, author of The Ark Brothers says “The story of Charlie Kadabra is an explosive tale of excitement and intrigue that finds new and creative ways to tie in old fantasy myths and creatures to our simple, mundane world.”
“I believe many children live with a lack of self-confidence like Charlie”, stated McAdam. “It can be from bullying, abandonment issues, or many other childhood challenges. It comes from being a kid. Many times, in our culture today, we don’t teach children or reward them for learning to deal with their “own stuff”. Children want someone to believe and nurture them and teach them tools to cope.”
As an 11 year old independent reviewer, I rate Saving Mim with 4 fangs. Saving Mim is about an orphan child named Charlie. In Saving Mom, Charlie learns that he is destine to save the magical world of Mim along with a rabbit named Fenek, a dragon named Galzra and a fairy girl named Emily and many more friends. Read the book to find out if Chalie and his friends can defeat the evil Dr. Pi who is using robots to kill the world of Mim. I would give Saving Mim 4 fangs because I felt like it rushed into the plot of the story way too fast.
