As a kid, I think I made up my own world on a daily basis. It’s part of having an imagination the size of Texas. Now, I see my kids doing the same thing. Sometimes, they come together to play in these imaginary worlds, and sometimes they are off on their own adventures. One of the reasons I enjoyed reading Calvin Sparks and the Crossing to Cambria, was that it reminded me of what it was like to be a kid and have a place where I could ride a dragon, fight monsters, and use magic to make my bed.
For years, Calvin’s grandfather has told him stories about a cabin deep in the woods that holds an amazing secret. Then one day Calvin and his two best friends find the cabin. Inside they discover more than just the world’s coolest clubhouse. This is The Crossing—a magical portal that takes them to another world.
Soon all three are in Cambria, a fantastic world filled with bizarre people, wonderful food, real magic, and even dragons! There Calvin learns that his family has a secret history and he’s swept up in the same dangerous mission that got his father killed thirteen years ago.
Can Calvin, Anna, and Perry stand up to the evil sorcerer Galigore and his grotesque minions? Or is Calvin doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps? This epic adventure story is perfect for kids and parents alike. Full of action, adventure, mystery, and magic, it’s an entertaining read that will keep you guessing.
