After I read The Emerald Tablet by P.J Hoover I gave it to my 10 year old sister to read because I thought she would like it. After the summary (written by me) is my sister's review of The Emerald Tablet. If you want to read my review of The Emerald Tablet then click here.
Benjamin Holt is used to having a normal life; that is if normal is defined by having the ability to use Telekinesis to fly a dead frog on a girl’s head in science class. He hangs around his best friend Andy, and his family, who can all use telekinesis too. He goes to a regular middle school, with regular teachers, in regular Virginia. That is until he sees his mom disappear by the ugly hanging picture in the hallway out his bedroom and is told by his mirror that he has to go to summer school for eight weeks. But he isn’t going to be spending summer school at his middle school in Virginia. He will be going to a school in a hidden country that the only way to get to it is by a teleportation device.
There he finds out that he isn’t human but a more superior species called telegens. At this school his powers aren’t special or something he has to hide, they are normal day-to-day things that everyone uses there. So now he is the normal kid, that is until he is unexpectedly chosen by the mystifying Emerald Tablet to be it’s champion. So now not only is he on a continent no human knows of but now the fate of the new continent is in his hands…
I liked The Emerald Tablet because this book comes to life in my mind. Mythical creatures pop out of the pages.Once you come to the end of this book you will not want to stop. I can not wait till the second book,The Navel of the World comes out!
