"Max Elliot Anderson brings a lifetime of dramatic film and video production to the pages of his action adventures and mysteries." Jerry B. Jenkins, Author
*What mother doesn't want to find a book with good values wrapped around an adventure story her sons will enjoy?
The action in this book is nonstop, drawing the reader in and keeping his attention all through the story.
*These books by Anderson are a treasure to have. The format is clear and easy to read. Each chapter has a great ending to pull you into the next chapter and before the youth knows it they have read a book!
What I, as a parent and grandparent, like best about this book is how the author wove all the important things young boys should learn while growing up into their everyday lives. He built the base of a faith filled life without pushing it on you. It is a very easy book to read, flows very nicely.
*Max’s books have adventures and mysteries to carry the reader from the first sentence to the end of the book. I would say they are must reads.
*This is a book that will appeal to juvenile boys and older. Girls will like these books too. If you have a reluctant reader, be sure to pick up any of Max Elliot Anderson's books. You'll be glad you did.
*As a parent that is always looking for quality literature that my boys can grow with (and doesn’t include vampires and magic and demons, yuck!) this was a refreshing read indeed. One I am sure we will revisit too as they get older.
*One can tell that Max Elliot Anderson knows the hearts and minds of young boys. I highly recommend this book to all adventure-loving (especially pirate-adventure loving) 8 to 12 year old boys or girls.
*If your tween boys, and girls too, like adventure and excitement, they simply have to try Max Elliot Anderson's books. I've never read one that I didn't like.
*The reader will keep going to see what is going to happen next.
*This is a fast paced story for young adults, especially boys but girls will also enjoy this story of adventure, action, finding a mission and staying alive.
*I thoroughly enjoyed this book - and all of Mr. Anderson's books, as has my son. Thanks to Mr. Anderson, my son went from being a very reluctant reader, but when he read the first book he was hooked, and has read every one of his books to date.
*The author delivers a well written story that will shock the daylights out of you once you read the ending.
*My son still has his collection of Max's books on his shelves. Pick up a copy of any of Mr. Anderson's books. You won't regret it. Barney and the Runaway is a great read.
*Mr. Anderson packs into this superb 5-star story the intrigue, mystery, and timeless life lessons that "tweens" will enjoy and parents will feel comfortable to read aloud.
*Barney and The Runaway is a great adventure story that is unpredictable and fascinating on every page. It's a great addition to the already terrific novels written by this very talented fiction author!!!
*It’s filled with action, mystery, and excitement that will keep both boys and girls turning the pages to see what happens next.
*Filled with suspense and information about wolves.
*Max Elliot Anderson weaves this story of adventure and trust with deft fingers, bringing the story to life in a fulfilling and meaningful way. "Legend of the White Wolf" should be included on every young boy's bookshelf.
*Great to find a book whose characters are good examples and the adults are not made to look foolish.
*My older two boys who are 8 and 10 years old LOVED these books. I have one boy who doesn't like to read, but it was easy getting him to read everyday with this series of books! They would come tell me everything that happened in the part they read that day. I'm so glad I found an adventure that they like to read.
*I loved this book - and I'm a girl! And I'm definitely not a Tween. Yet this book captivated me from the first page.
*We feel this author is providing a much-needed resource for those readers who would rather not read if they don't have to. We rated it five. *Anderson's narrative is well plotted, the characters and their dialogue are realistic and the lessons sprinkled throughout are subtle but timely. I would gladly recommend this book to young readers. *This is an exciting book from beginning to end. I really enjoyed the clever but easy to follow plot, the believable characters, the realistic dialog, and the fun, family friendly humor. Parts of the book really keep you on the edge of your seat, too.
*"Terror at Wolf Lake" is an enjoyably ethical story with a fresh, fun approach that young readers will truly enjoy. *"Terror at Wolf Lake" is a recommended read due to the clear, easy reading style and fairly strong plot line that juvenile adventure readers are likely to enjoy.
*When I was young, going out to a movie was a family event. When the movie was really good, we applauded at its end. I have to admit that, upon finishing this story, I had the urge to applaud! You will too, and if your family and friends wonder what has come over you, then loan them your book to read! *I enjoyed this book very much. The kids in the story acted like detectives and solved the poaching mystery. It's a good book for boys and parents will be glad that the book also teaches about the importance of respecting the law.
