The Adventure of Stan and the Emerald of Foundation
on Oct. 22, 2015
The Adventures of Stan and The Emerald of Foundation is a high fantasy story suitable for all ages. Though there are dragons, wizards, goblins, and curses, the scenes are not so graphic that a younger audience couldn't enjoy them. In fact, I think children as young as seven or eight would love them. Ben Welsh has set the stage in a magical, action packed world for his main character, Stan. The tale begins with Stan and his comrades breaking into a cavern of gold guarded by Gordon the Gruesome, and every chapter after sends Stan and his friends through a chain of events that leads to a mountainous adventure with no lack of sword fights, archery, and a magical emerald with powers beyond belief. The final battle brings Stan full circle, and the ending leaves the reader waiting for the next installment of Stan's adventures.
