The First Escape by G.P. Taylor

What I Thought:

This is such a BEAUTIFUL book. The illustrations are superb. I love the black pages! So totally cool. My 13 year old son enjoyed it, but thinks it is more suitable for ages 8-12. He really liked the 'graphic novel' aspect to it though. I recommend this for any kids you need to buy a Christmas present for!

It is time to play a Wild Card! Every now and then, a book that I have chosen to read is going to pop up as a FIRST Wild Card Tour. Get dealt into the game! (Just click the button!) Wild Card Tours feature an author and his/her book's FIRST chapter!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!

Today's Wild Card author is:
