    DH got it for me for Easter! It arrived from Amazon yesterday! I hope to start reading it next week! I'm doing a book group at DD1s school so I have to finish that book first! I like how it had info about the online game! We're hoping to try that out Friday night!

    I just got mine it the mail today from amazon. I am leaving for WDW on Thursday and I want to save it for the plane ride, and a couple of DD2's naps, but I don't know if I can wait.

    Can I ask how old your kids were when they started reading the Kingdom Keepers books? I thought my DS7 would enjoy them, but when I read the back to him he said he was confused already and wasn't interested. :) He LOVES all things regarding Disney World, but said he just didn't think he'd "get" the book. An employee at Borders told me they're more for 10-12 year olds, more along the lines of Harry Potter as far as reading level. What do you think?

    I don't have any older children (just a 2 year old), but was a HS English teacher. I agree with the bookstore employee. I would say that your once your child starts "noticing" the opposite sex, they will be ready for this book. In addition to the fantasy and adventure they are also "coming of age" books.

    Thanks for the reply. I usually read the books first myself, but it's nice to know what the appropriate age is. We'll keep them on the list for when he's older. I appreciate your response.

    My son was 9 when he started them, but I really think 8 might even be ok. He loves the fact that he knows everything about the locations and constantly asks me park questions while reading. He's loving #2 now...almost finished!

    Thanks for the reply. I ordered the first one and will read it first to see if it'll work for my son now or if we'll wait for awhile. Judging from this thread's responses I have a feeling I'll love it too!

    Just finished the 3rd book last night. Great story!! Now I have to wait for book 4 to come out.

    According to Ridely Pearson it will be a 6 book series with the last 2 taking place in Disneyland and not WDW.

    Got it last week, DS13 actually found it for me by accident.

    I'm going to re-read the other 2 first though, it's been a while and book 2 is sketchy in my brain.

    DD1 is reading KK 1 right now and I'm on chapter 5 of KK 3. I'm going to try and read several chapters tonight. DD1 is loving it! I wish I had reread the end of KK2 first as KK3 kind of jumped right into where 2 left off, at least that's what it felt like to me. Both DD1 and I are going to spend a lot of time reading this week. I have several other books I want to read so I want to spend some quality time with my book! Going to listen to the podcast with Ridley Pearson sometime this week.

    I'd never even heard of them until my hubby mentioned them tonight. Enjoyable for adults?
