Announcing our FIRST EVER beyond 5 gold stars review.
The Secret DMS files is a book which should not be missed! An amazing book written by a pair of amazing writers. This book is primarily aimed towards 5 graders but everyone who loves a good mystery will love this story.
I would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to authors Stephanie Robinson and Jessica Haight for giving my 10 year old son a copy of this book to share with his 5th grade class. I read the book before giving it to him to bring to school (I absolutely LOVE children's books) He will be writing his own review along with his class when they finish the book.
Now to explain about a BEYOND 5 STAR REVIEW. Given to a book that goes beyond the regular 5 star rating. It excelled in every aspect. The writing was incredible, the illustrations were perfect- they added to the story without becoming overwhelming. The book captures the interest of the reader from the beginning and holds it until the very end. I did not want this book to finish. I felt a sense of loss when I turned the last page only to discover the book had ended. Please, Please, Please write more adventures for the DMS club.
One thing I must mention, visit the website that accompanies the book. Fairday Morrow is the main character of the story. If you visit the website, you will discover contests to win books and a weekly riddle to figure out. Do you have what it takes to be a member of the DMS?
I do not what to delve too much into the book with my review, I don't want to spoil any surprises for readers. The story was full of fun and suspense. The friendship between the three DMS members is the kind of friendship that will last a lifetime. Just do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK!!!
The first seven chapters of the book are available at the website. A link has been provided above (just click on Fairday's name and you will transported into another world.
