Every book that's come out by Hecht has been an adventurous experience. The story keeps children engaged, leaves them guessing and puts their deductive reasoning into play. The Nocturnals series is sure to be around a long time. So what's going on in The Hidden Kingdom, you ask?
The Hidden Kingdom, as with all The Nocturnal tales, involves the Brigade doing their best to save their beloved forest. Something's happening that's actually destroying lives. Leaves, trees, fruit and bodies are drying out. There's a drought! But when they go to the water holes, there's absolutely No Water!
So the team sets out to save everyone. While out and about, the forest seems to come alive to work against them. Sticks that run away, leaves that move and more. What can be happening and how can they top the forest from attacking them? And will they ever find water to survive the drought?
The Hidden Kingdom was better than the previous books, because there was a greater, almost supernatural situation going on. It made the read bewitching, interesting. My only problem with the book is the darned Bismark! I can't stand his blending of languages, his constant harassment of Dawn and his most annoying activity! If he was removed, the story would be so much better. Then again, all stories need some sort of comic relief.
The Hidden Kingdom is a fun read and kids of all ages would love it, as long as they can tolerate Bismark! Off to the next read. Cheers!
