Underneath the steps leading down to Eric’s basement is a hidden storage space. It’s dusty and old — nothing special at all. But when Eric, Julie, and Neal all huddle inside the gray room together, something unbelievable happens. A glittering light and then a rainbow-colored staircase appear. And as the kids take their very first step down into the mysterious land of Droon, they know that only magic and adventure await them!


This is a good series for the precocious reader as there is really no objectionable content.  I don’t think kids older then about 9 will enjoy it as it’s a pretty simple story.

Sexual Content





Flaming arrow shoots past a child. A wizard is described as “pure evil”. Scary image of Lord Sparr. Drawing of giant spider, not too scary.
