Pearson, Ridley Disney Lands (The Kingdom Keepers: The Return), 352 pages. Hyperion (Disney), 2015. $18. Mature Content: G; Language: G; Violence: PG (fighting, but virtually bloodless).
The rest of the Kingdom Keepers are moving on with their lives, but Finn can’t shake the feeling that there is a least one more challenge for the Kingdom Keepers to solve - who put Walt’s pen in the display for the kids to find? In order to find the beginning of the answers, Finn will have to take a leap of faith and go back into time. Worse, however, is convincing the other Keepers that he is not just trying to relive their glory days. What do you do when the people who have always had your back are not there for you any more?
Pearson skillfully takes Finn and friends into the pass. The story is heart-breaking when no one will help Finn, but exciting as he overcomes each challenge.
