Book Review | Yvonne Jones | The Amulet Of Amser

I received this book from the author through Goodreads. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
Author: Yvonne Jones
Title: The Amulet Of Amser - The Case Of The Mona Lisa
Genre: Historical, Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Adventure, Middle Grade
Synopsis: Wen's very first fantasy adventure in the middle grade chapter book series - The Amulet Of Amser - The Case Of The Mona Lisa.
Blending history with fiction, Children learn about famous pieces of art. Wen, the youngest member of the Amser family, is destined by his family's ancient oath to forever protect the world's most precious pieces of art for all of mankind. During a visit to his Grandfather's house, Wen learns that he can influence what will happen tomorrow by going back in time. Will Wen be able to save the Mona Lisa or will Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece be lost forever?
Review: This was a good read and I would definitely be interested in completing this book box set once they are all published. This is a fun and factual way to teach children about history and art. This book is made up of a very short story so children will not have to sit for ages to hear/read the whole story. The length of the story and the fact that there are illustrations is a good thing as it means that children will not get bored. Mixing fact with fiction will make the book more interesting for children. This is a good way to teach children facts without it feeling like a lesson.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
