Praise For…


A New York Times bestselling series!

Praise for Rise of the Earth Dragon (Dragon Masters #1):

"In this first of the Dragon Masters series, vocabularly is accessible; sentences, paragraphs, and chapters are short; and dialogue moves the story along rapidly. Black-and-white sketch-type drawings add depth to the story and feelings to the characters (both children and dragons). Emergent readers will find happy success here." -- Booklist

"The first of a new series of early chapter books, this entry is sure to attract fans. Brief chapters, large print, lots of action, attractive illustrations in every spread including a maplike panorama, an enviable protagonist -- who wouldn't want to be a Dragon Master? -- all combine to make an entertaining read. With plenty left to be resolved, the next entry will be eagerly sought after." - Kirkus Reviews

"Each page features wonderfully detailed pencil illustrations which help to support the text." -- Library Media Connection

Praise for BRANCHES books:

"These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -- School Library Journal

"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -- Booklist

You’ve got to love a Wyoming sheriff who’s strong and stoic but also humane and a quoter of literature and philosophy!  In Land of Wolves, Walt Longmire’s investigating the death of a Basque shepherd and its possible link to a powerful family with a violent past, all while a renegade wolf is roaming the mountains picking off sheep, and possibly, men.  Johnson’s plots are always strong, but it’s the relationships between the characters that make the books so addicting.
 
If you’re looking for an especially exciting plot, try his previous book The Depth of Winter.  Longmire leaves Wyoming for Mexico to track down his adult daughter, who’s been kidnapped.  He seeks help from a contact in a bar in Juarez, and Johnson writes, “His face became somber, and his mouth hung open as if he were tasting the air between us like a snake.”  It ramps up from there!  - reviewed by Nikki
