Summer Reading List: Disney’s Kingdom Keepers Series Reboot

Y’all know I love young adult fiction. With a house full of “young adults” — ok, I can’t even type that with a straight face, they’re teens & tweens — I can always justify my love of YA Fiction by claiming that I like to have something in common that we can talk about at dinnertime. But y’all know the truth… I just like well-written fiction, YA or otherwise.

Enter Ridley Pearson’s Kingdom Keepers series of adventure novels. These are set in our family’s favorite Walt Disney World theme parks and on the Disney Cruise Line!! Now, the series has returned — get it?  The Return: Disney Lands

From the Disney InsiderSo why do Disney fans of all ages need to read this book? Well, without giving too much away, The Return series involves Disney history. (Hint: ever wondered what Disneyland was like on opening day? Well, Pearson has!) He told us a few fun facts about that momentous occasion: “There were upwards of 14,000 counterfeit tickets used on opening day in Disneyland, swelling numbers to three times what the Cast Members expected. There was a major water problem (you will read about that!). Women’s high-heeled shoes became stuck in fresh asphalt! And on and on…” 

That should justify my love of these books, they are historical and educational. Yep, that’s my story.

Book 1 of the Seriously, Y’all Summer Reading List has been chosen. What will our next selection be? Do you have any suggestions? And no, they need not be YA Fiction. I love all types of fiction.
