Disney After Dark

Five kids have been chosen to be holographic guides at the Magic Kingdom.  It's just a simple modeling gig...until they start going to sleep and waking up in the park as their holograms.  Disney's greatest villains are gaining power, and only someone half-human/half-character can stop them.

Disney After Dark by Ridley Pearson is the first book in the Kingdom Keepers series.

A must-read for hardcore Disney fans, Pearson has done his research and provides a unique look at the behind-the-scenes workings of the parks.  Kids will enjoy seeing familiar characters acting outside of their established stories, and most will find someone among the six protagonists to identify with.  The action is well-paced and clear and provides plenty of heart-pounding moments and creatively nightmarish situations (although nothing grusome).  Between the magical operations and mysterious puzzles, fantasy and adventure fans should find plenty to like here.

Disney After Dark is published by Hyperion and retails for $8.99 (paperback).  I bought my copy with my very own money.  You can get yours at Left Bank today!
