Middle-Grade Chapter Book Illustrations

Darien and the Seed of Obreget
By Jeanna Kunce, art by Craig Kunce

This is the second book in the Darien series . It was also purchased by Barnes & Noble and chosen for a nationwide release with in-store placement.

We chose to continue the same illustration strategy and style throughout this second Darien book. We felt it worked well in the first book, and it was well-received by readers and reviewers, so we didn’t want to tinker with a good thing.

 

Reviews

Middle grade readers should find this character relatable. The sporadic inclusion of illustrations and the surreal plot make for a quick read. VERDICT A strong supplemental purchase for fantastical fiction featuring a strong female protagonist. —School Library Journal

Middle grade students will enjoy this thoughtful fantasy-adventure, ideal for private and public library children’s collections. Also highly recommended is the first book in the series, Darien and the Lost Paints of Telinoria —Midwest Book Review
