Read full description of the books Book of Names:I absolutely loved this series when I was a kid, so when I recently rediscovered this book at a thrift store I had to read it again.
As an adult, the book isn't exactly the best story ever. But a child reading this would LOVE it (I did)! It has mythical creatures and magicians, it has pages and pages of secret codes and drawings to decipher, it's packed full of action and much more. It's the kind of magical fast-paced story kids will love.
My only big issue with it is the length, it is VERY short and very little is revealed. It's clear in this first book that this series is one giant mystery surrounded by many little mysteries, and while discovering new truths and unraveling the codes is part of the fun, it would have been nice if more was shared. However, I do realize this book is meant for 8-year-olds, so I can't really complain about the length.
If you have young kids looking for a quick magical and mysterious read, I definitely recommend the Diadem series. You may even like it yourself. Finding the books new is nearly impossible, but there are many used shops online that sell them, and for cheap, which is aweeesome.
Read information about the authorJohn Peel is the author of Doctor Who books and comic strips. Notably, he wrote the first original Doctor Who novel, Timewyrm: Genesys, to launch the Virgin New Adventures line. In the early 1990s he was commissioned by Target Books to write novelisations of several key Terry Nation Dalek stories of the 1960s after the rights were finally worked out. He later wrote several more original Daleks novels.
He has the distinction of being one of only three authors credited on a Target novelisation who had not either written a story for the TV series or been a part of the production team (the others were Nigel Robinson and Alison Bingeman).
Outside of Doctor Who, Peel has also written novels for the Star Trek franchise. Under the pseudonym "John Vincent", he wrote novelisations based upon episodes of the 1990s TV series James Bond Jr..
