Charlie Bone is back. Don’t know who Charlie Bone is? That’s okay, because The Secret Kingdom is the first book in an all-new adventure series. And if you do know Charlie, then you won’t want to miss this! Charlie Bone is a 13-year-old boy with special powers. He’s inherited these powers from his ancestor who was an African king and a magician. Charlie is also a magician and has actually met the Red King by traveling into paintings. But he’s only met him as an old man. Now, new information has been discovered about the Red King, or Timoken as he was called, and Charlie will get the chance to learn more about the man who passed these abilities down to him. Plus, he’ll get to meet him when he was a kid. And each time they meet, Charlie learns more about Timoken and his sister Zabayda, the magic cloak, and the talking camel. So, join Charlie on this quest to discover The Secret Kingdom. (Booktalk by Elizabeth Daigle for 2014 Louisiana Young Readers’ Choice nominee)
