Hi! Bart King here. You may know me from . . . wait, you don’t know me at all, do you? NOBODY does. That’s because I’m a mystery, wrapped in a riddle, and then cooked in a pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes!
Disney just published my debut novel, The Drake Equation. It’s a funny science fiction adventure about Noah Grow, a young birdwatcher who’s drawn into galactic intrigue. It’s REALLY GOOD, according to other people. I mean, the book has an Amazon rating of 5 stars. Plus, my editor at Disney worked with Rick Riordan on the Percy Jackson books, so yay!
“Librarians will find that young readers empathize with the young birdwatcher and his friends…. children will enjoy the school and friendship aspects of the story.” Teacher Librarian Magazine
“Noah is a strong enough character to snag interest and keep it… there’s clever humor and a great central protagonist to carry readers along to the end.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Mock ‘field notes’ [offer] information from Noah’s perspective in a clever, albeit gratuitous way. A sci-fi narrative with an enjoyable main character.” Kirkus
“This debut novel…has a lot to recommend it… A great purchase for middle schools and a solid choice for older elementary students who read above grade level.” Ms. Yingling Reads review
