dopple ganger chronicles {giveaway}

Joshua just finished the third book in the Dopple Ganger Chronicles, The Great Mogul Diamond.  When I asked him to tell me about the book, he dove into a 30 minute overview of the book.  The boy retains so much!  In order to spare you all those details and have to flag this as a spoiler alert, I'll give you the skeleton synopsis from the back cover.

the great mogul diamond

Everything was going so well for a change. . . . Sadie and Saskia Dopple, those troublesome twins, have been adopted by their loyal friend, the writer Muzz Elliott. And their friend Erik Morrissey Ganger is finally on his way to becoming a full-fledged detective. But when an anonymous note threatening Muzz Elliott arrives, the twins suddenly find themselves on an express train to danger. Awhirl in a series of crimes stolen right off the pages of Muzz Elliott’s own mystery novels, the twins need to figure out who’s behind this twisted plot, or Muzz Elliott will be framed for her own greatest literary invention: the theft of the Great Mogul Diamond.

I asked Joshua if he liked the book, and he answered with an emphatic, "Yes!"  He loved the adventure around every page.  The comic book like illustrations kept his attention and drew him into the story.  I wouldn't necessarily say that he's a lover of comic books, so I was surprised that this was a draw for him.  I love that, in the midst of all the adventure and crime solving fun, there's an important Godly lesson being taught.

So these have a Godly message to them? That'd be great over many of the junk books written for kids these days!

Hi Jen,

It had been some time since I visited your lovely blog, so I guess it was fate that I came back in time for this great giveaway -- thanks for the chance! The mixture of graphic novel and traditional novel sounds so very interesting.

Maybe you want to check out my Oktoberfest giveaway .

Greetings from Munich, Germany,
