GIVEAWAY/Review - Bella World - The Three Lost Kids Trilogy #2 by Kimberly Kinradel

About Book

Bella World (Three Lost Kids, #2)
Ages 3-9

….A large presence settled behind me. I knew without turning around what I would find, but still I turned…

…and faced the Dragon.

I screamed so loud my throat went raw. TayTay howled and barked in the distance below me. Shots of rainbow lit up the trees, and Madelynne screamed for me. But none of it helped.

The green scales and glowing green eyes of the monster the whole village feared hovered just a few inches from my head. Then its claws wrapped around me, scratching me and squishing me in painful ways, and all at once I was flying….

Bella is tired of getting blamed every time her sisters lose something. It’s not her fault they misplaced something important, so why does everyone assume she took it? It makes her blood boil that no one appreciates all the things does to help and protect people. Sometimes her anger makes her do things she regrets later.

When she, her two sisters and and their dog TayTay find a watery portal to Bella World, they are surprised to discover a town ravaged by Dragon attacks. But not all is as it seems, a lesson Bella learns when they are sent to stop the Dragon.

Together, Bella and Emerald the Dragon learn to control their Dragon Fire, make amends to those they have wronged and in the process find the appreciation and acceptance they sought all along.

With full color illustrations by Josh Evans, Bella World bridges the gap between picture books and chapter books, offering children 4-9 years old a new, exciting reading journey.

Look for the rest of the Three Lost Kids Trilogy—Lexie World and Maddie World—if you like enchanted Unicorns, Fairies, and more adventures through magical worlds with great life lessons for kids!

About Kimberly

I was born with ink in my veins and magic in my heart. As a child, where others saw shapes in clouds, I saw words. But I was also an entrepreneur at heart. So when my business arrangement with the Tooth Fairy ended, I went pro by writing my fantastical stories and selling them to all my neighbors.

Fast forward…um…many years and many college degrees later…and I am now a published author and reformed journalist.

Though I have written in many genres and fields, I am most passionate about the world of the paranormal and fantasy. Look for these exciting young adult paranormal novels from Evolved Publishing.

Check out The Three Lost Kids Trilogy through Evolved Publishing. With full color illustrations, this unique chapter book series for 3-9 year olds follows three sisters as they enter magical worlds and learn important life lessons from the new friends they meet there.

My Thoughts

Here we are with THE THREE LOST KIDS, Book two BELLA WORLD.

Bella has been accused by her sister Lexie of taking the magic mirror that Lexie had brought back from LEXIE WORLD.  Bella is insulted and feels like no one appreciates her. She becomes angry over the accusation. When her mother tries to confront her about taking the mirror, Bella storms out of the house.  She heads for an area where the kids are not allowed venture.  

Her sisters find her sleeping under a tree by the lake.  Something terrible happens and they end up in the water and find themselves in Bella World.  

They find out from the town's people of Bella World that a dragon is stealing their valuables and burning the town down around them.  So this must be the reason they have been transported to Bella World.  

They must find the dragon and find out why it is being so destructive.  Bella knows dragons are suppose to be nice and help people, not cause trouble for them.

Excerpt from the Discussion Question at the end of the story.

     1. Have you ever felt like someone didn't appreciate you for what you did for them? 
         How did you handle it?

     2. What are some things you can do to calm down and make smart choices when you get angry?

Sometimes anger can cause more harm to us than than to the person or situation we are angry at or about.
It  is like a flame that keeps getting bigger and bigger making it hard to put out the fire.  There is no telling how much damage you end up causing to others and yourself.  

So let your little light shine!

The author has done it again!  Wonderful story that teaches moral values in a way that children can grasp the meaning.  

The illustrations created the characters and background images with vibrant colors to depict the true meaning of the author's story. 

I highly recommend this book.

     I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
