on Nov. 28, 2012 :
Noah is a fifth grader who is regularly bullied by an older boy, Kevin, and his followers. Other than science with his favorite teacher, Mr. Porter, school life is far from enjoyable for young Noah.
One day, when Mr. Porter is mysteriously absent from the classroom, Noah stands up to Kevin and the knock-on effects lead him to discover two puzzle pieces that transport him to the titular Nameless World.
This new and fantastically imagined world is a wonderful place filled with the strangest of creatures and vegetation - some of which can even talk. Problems not dissimilar to those of our own world are starting to take their toll in ‘The Nameless World’ as nature suffers at the hands of those who seek to plunder its wildlife for their own pleasure.
It seems that destiny has a hero’s adventure in mind for Noah as he is quickly pulled into helping those that want to save their world as he seeks his way back home. Noah must dig deep to overcome his fears and do what he knows is right before attempting to leave his new-found friends.
I was pulled quickly into this story and found myself rooting for Noah every step of the way. There is a clear moral message which is delivered without lecturing and which never interferes with the reader’s enjoyment.
It is rare to find books for children as well written and descriptively crafted as this one. If you are a parent and wish to treat your child to a riveting read while encouraging them to consider the effects of the way we treat our planet then this is the book for you.
I highly recommend ‘The Nameless World’.
