The Search for the Scepter by Julie Dinges

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This was such a fun mixture of fantasy and adventure in a children’s book! I loved the wonderful characters, and the mission the girls are on to rescue the scepter!

The two main characters in this story are two sisters and princesses. They awake to find a thief has stolen their father’s scepter and decide to take matters into their own hands and get it back! I loved that this adventure was just the two of them, striking out on their own to save something that is special to their father.

The princesses find that this thief continues to be one step ahead of them, but they are persistent. Along the way, they come across a variety of characters that are able to point the girls in the right direction. We meet magicians, mermaids, dragons, and so many others! My children loved this! It was exciting, and kept them very engaged!

The illustrations were great. They really fit the story and helped to show what was happening. At the end of the story, there is a map that helps the reader trace the girls’ path to find the scepter. It was an excellent addition!

Overall, this was a wonderful children’s book filled with exciting elements. It was a well-written story that kept my kids engaged, and I highly recommend it!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Search for the Scepter to children that enjoy a bit of magic and adventure!
