new RANGER'S APPRENTICE BOOK 11: THE LOST STORIES in stores 3 October 2011:
I went to an all girls school and even when I was in years 11 and 12 Ranger's Apprentice was one of the most read books in our library. All the girls loved them. The main characters might be male, and the general target audience might be 9—13 year old boys, but these books are a great read for all ages and genders.
I would also recommend this series to any parent who is having trouble getting their child to read. The action packed adventure is always exciting but without excessive violence, and with no swearing/drug use/sexual remarks.
All in all, this is a great afternoon activity.
Description of Book
Everyone knows the legends of the Rangers of Araluen. But no one has heard the whole story - until now. Has Halt told Will the truth about how Will became an orphan? Did Gilan track down Morgarath's lieutenant after the battle of Three Step Pass? Is there to be a royal wedding - or will tragedy strike first?
Inspired by questions and letters sent by his loyal readers, John Flanagan answers all your burning questions about the world of the Rangers.
If you want to know what's gone before and what comes next for Will, Halt, Horace, Alyss, Evanlyn and Gilan - not to mention a certain stubborn little pony - THE LOST STORIES is an unmissable read.
