The Hidden Stairs and the Magic Carpet is a great book! In the beginning Julie, Neal, and Eric find a magical world called Droon. They meet a nice princess named Keeah. Sparr is evil and has half of Droon but he is still not satisfied. After, Sparr captures Keeah. Neal, Eric, and Julie set Keeah free on a magic carpet. The magic carpet was not with them the whole time but when they needed it there it was. Will Sparr be able to take over Droon or will they stop him?

Keeah was a very interesting character! She got to live in a palace, it was very big. Another reason is that she was a princess. Being a princess was good because she got to rule the land and people listened to her. The last reason is because she had magical powers and if she had magical powers she could cast spells. Keeah was an interesting character because she lived in a palace, she was a princess, and she had magical powers.

I recommend this book to people who like magical adventures. One reason is that Neal, Eric, and Julie go to a magical world called Droon. Another reason is because they see magical creatures called Ninns and Groggles. The last reason is because they discover some magical objects like a magical staircase and a magic mirror. This is a good book for people who like magical adventures because they go to a magical world, see magical creatures, and discover magical objects.
