Marsh's MMGM Pick for this week is The Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson.
My Review of The Kingdom Keepers:
     Five everyday school kids get the opportunity of a lifetime.  They have auditioned to be DHI, or Disney Host Interactive.  They are hosts who help guide visitors throughout the Magic Kingdom.  Finn is one of the DHIs and, soon after he becomes involved with the program, he wakes up in the park with no recollection of how he got there.  It keeps happening night after night--both to Finn and the other DHIs.  He and the others have to solve a mystery in the Magic Kingdom or else they will keep returning to the park.

My Response to The Kingdom Keepers:
     This is a great book for Disney lovers.  My dad kept recommending this book to me but I never read it.  Finally, my literacy teacher ordered the book.  So, I was, like, "Why not try it?" I mean, I was about to go to Disney with my family.  It seemed like the right time; so I tried it.  One thing that I loved was how I could relate to all the places in Disney that were described in the book.  I wish I could tell you about my favorite part, but I can't spoil the book for you.

     I give this book 5 monsters.
