“The Secret of Indigo Moon” by G.P. Taylor is the second book in The Dopple Ganger Chronicles.
The book falls under the Young Adult category but is advertised as being designed to help “reluctant readers” discover the wonder of books. When I received the book I didn’t realize it was written for a young adult audience, I thought because it was for reluctant readers, it was more of a 3rd or 4th grade level which my son can easily handle. He could easily handle this book and the bulk of the story (he’s 7 but very advanced in his reading) until they start talking about murder and showing comics with guns pointed at people.
The way the book is laid out is really brilliant. It has an illustrated story mixed in with comic book type pages and it really was appealing to both me and my son. But after I leafed through it I realized it wasn’t a book he was ready for, so I am setting it aside for when he is older. I did read parts of it and it seems like a great YA story, I just wish it had been written with content appropriate for a bit younger.
From best-selling author G.P. Taylor comes the highly anticipated second installment of The Dopple Ganger Chronicles, a series that combines art and traditional text to help “reluctant readers” discover the wonder of books.
Erik Morissey Ganger, famed explorer and detective (well, in his dreams), and his mischief-making sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple, didn’t go looking for a secret tunnel beneath the school. They never intended to make the acquaintance of a shifty private eye with a nose for trouble. It wasn’t part of the plan to come face to face with an old enemy, one with an agenda of his own that could destroy them all. And unraveling the “secret of indigo moon” was the farthest thing from their minds.
At Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children, these things just seem to happen.
In The Secret of Indigo Moon, confirmed troublemakers Erik, Sadie, and Saskia plunge headlong into a new and perilous mystery, one that challenges everything they thought they knew about their lives, themselves, and whom it’s safe to trust.
