My name is Gavin. I am 9 years old. My favorite kind of ice cream is mint chocolate chip and I LOVE reading!
What book did you read and why did you choose it? I read Island of Dragons which is in the series The Unwanteds. I chose to read it because my brother Jace said it was a good book. After I read it I thought it was great!
Can you describe this book in one word?AMAZING!
What was your favorite part of this story? My favorite part of the story is when Alex, one of the main characters, gave baby dragons wings made of vines, scales, magic and more!
If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do? Depending on if I could use magic or not, I would make as many spell components as possible and use them for fighting the enemies.
What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book? I would tell my friends to read The Unwanteds because I think it is a great series because it is very interesting and adventurous.
What do you think about the book's cover? The book's cover is very interesting because it shows what the dragons look like which is very cool!
Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not? I would LOVE to read more of the series with these characters because I think the characters are very interesting and they have a huge part in the story.
Can you name another book that reminds you of this one? I think Unwanteds: Island of Graves reminds me of Unwanteds: Island of Dragons because they both have the same dragons in the story. They have the same characters, too. They also have a war going on in each book.
If you could ask the author one question about this book what would it be? Are you going to make more books in this series?
Gavin, according to Ms. McMann's webite, The Unwanteds: Island of Dragons is the last in the series; but she has a new series called The Unwanteds Quests. Check out the books in that series and let us know what you think.
Thank you, Gavin, for telling us about this book!
