Book review: Iris and the Dragonflies by Rosemary Danielis


As many of you know, I have a very deep love of dragonflies and that they have a special meaning to me.  When I saw the title of this book, I just knew that I had to read this.

The characters, mostly pre-teens and their families, are described as most of us live in our own daily lives. The sibling rivalry, the pressures of school and making friends.  She has brought children from many different countries to come work together as an amazing team.

The cross of mystery, intrigue, and suspense with the caring and love you find in each and every one of us.  This author has done an incredible job in bringing all of those to life.

For teachers, there is a great lesson to be learned in this novel.  It could be a great accompaniment to an ecological lesson, lessons on selfishness vs. selflessness, good vs. evil, and so many more.

Geared toward a young adult audience, I find this book captivating enough to hold the attention of children and adults of all ages.  Very well written and descriptive.  It will definitely hold your attention and leave you begging for more.

I, for one, will be looking forward to further installments of this series. I can feel that she has so much more to tell and left openings for many more novels.
