EVEN HEROES NEED HELP
Hi. My name is Riles, and I'm a hero.
I don't have super speed, x-ray vision, or super strength. In fact, I'm a pretty normal fifth grader in every way except one - I'm a Story Keeper.
You've never heard of Story Keeping? No worries. I hadn't either. Then, grandpa opened that first magical book. The pages glowed.
Well, awesome until I had to help a space dude recover his memory and battle intergalactic pirates. Those guys have sweet blasters, but they're super grumpy.
Don't worry, I'll tell you all about it right here!

Don’t miss The Night I Became A Hero, the first of the series by A.R. Marshall. If you enjoyed Land of Stories, Epic Zero, or The Chronicles of Narnia, you’ll love this action-packed adventure series. Like The Neverending Story, it’s been known to "pull in" the most reluctant readers…literally.
Check out the whole series! Perfect for ages 6-10, especially reluctant readers.

It's filled with adventure, suspense, courage, and bravery. Stories need protecting so join Riles, Little Finn, and Sissie on their adventures to save story tie. This book won't disappoint.
Very well-written, funny, modern, and fast-paced. Kids 6-11 will love it. Also, interesting and unusual story with plenty of twists. I highly recommend it!
How much fun would it be to help characters in the book you are reading!? What a fun idea for a book series. The Night I Became a Hero is clever, silly & fun to read. I can't wait to read more.
Exciting! Excellent book! Spawned my child into reading more than ever!! My 10 year old was so excited when book 2 came in the mail! He read it right away in a few days! He loves the story line and is looking forward to reading book three soon!!! Perfect for the reluctant reader that hasn't found their "love" for reading yet. After reading book one, he has been reading and reading!!
I'm a homeschool kid, and this book is amazing! It's good for a fourth grader to read, and it just makes you want to keep reading! Read the book!
*Five Stars! My son is in love, so happy to find a quality adventure book that keeps him reading.
My seven-year-old LOVES this book. It is unusual and exciting, without being too scary. Highly recommended.
Fantastic addition to the series! Our 9yr old son was so excited to finally read this next book in this series, he finished it in one afternoon! These books are just the right mix of adventure and intrigue without the extreme violence and darkness seen in many books aimed at this age group! 5 stars all the way!
Game changing book! My 11y son has been plowing through this set and is asking for more. This set of books has made him want to read and not play video games all day.
Best summertime reading! This is the best book ever!!!! I bought it for my 8 year old grandson. He loved it so much that I just had to order the next 2 books in the series. My grandson can't wait for another book by A. R. Marshall
Happy 10 year old! Our son needed a book for a school project and he loved this! He asked immediately for the next in the series!
*Great characters... Who doesn't love a story with a dragon? I am a second grade teacher and I think this story is great for any 2nd-5th grade readers. I read this story this summer with a nine year old boy who loved it! It was a page turner and kept both of us interested. We liked how the grandpa kept sending in notes and telling the characters secrets to help them on their hero's journey. When we finished reading the story, we looked it up on line to see if there was a sequel and were surprised to find out the author lived in our town! We can't wait to read the next book and hope we run in to the author some day on the beaches in Santa Barbara!
My 9 year old grandson loved this book. What else can I say, except I bought the second book in the series too.
Kids loved it! My 4th graders loved this book! The Characters were relatable and my struggling readers didn't want to put it down. It was a great choice for guided reading!
Nice book! Bought this for my little reader loved it! We have another one coming from the same author! Awesome book! My 6 y/o loved it!
