Have you ever gone on an adventure to ice cold ice caves to defeat a tall, fat, fire breathing monster? Well, if you read a book called The Secrets of Droon: In the Ice Caves of Krog you can go into a hidden world of Droon and help defeat the evil monster, Krog. That?s what Eric Hinkle did with his three best friends, Julie, Keeah, and Neal. Boy, Tony Abbott, the author, sure likes adventure. You will find wonderful pictures with magic and action. Eric and his friends go through tons of obstacles on their search for Krog, but if they make it to the ice caves alive they might find that Krog isn?t the monster they were expecting.
It?s neat how there?s magical creatures and hidden places in this book. A character that was interesting is a guy named Prince Star, because he can change into different things, and he gives Eric and his friends magic stuff. My favorite part was when Eric and his friends met the Iceman, because Neal had to answer three questions to get across the ice bridge. There is a series of these books, and they are all good.
I would recommend this book to people who like adventure because this whole book is adventurous. I would also recommend this book to third graders because it is third grade level. I hope you enjoy this book.
