Exactly as stated.

I bought "like new" and that's exactly how it looks. I wouldn't be surprised if it was even "brand new" (other than sharpie over the barcode).

Couldn't put it down!

While a quick read of maybe 13 hours total, I could not put it down! As along time disney fan i absolutely loved this.

Kingdom Keepers is a book for all.

Teens get up and go read kingdom keepers. This book is not only magical, but will tell you the many secrets of Disney.

Five young teens living in Florida get the opportunity of a lifetime--they're each going to be turned into a DHI, or a Disney Host Interactive, to guide visitors throughout the park. The five teens--Finn, Charlene, Willa, Philby, and Maybeck--are a varied assortment of ethnicities, and all attend different schools. As Maybeck states, they're "the Orlando assortment pack." When Philby points out that DHI also stands for Daylight Hologram Imaging, the kids get a little worried that maybe the people at Disney aren't telling them everything there is to know. And that turns out to be quite an understatement. One night when Finn falls asleep, he finds himself in the park after closing-- in his DHI, or hologram, body. He meets an old man named Wayne, one of the original Disney Imagineers, who informs Finn that he and his other four DHI friends have been chosen for a mission. A mission to save the park from the Overtakers, a group of once-benign Park characters who have taken on power and are intent on spreading their power outside of the borders of Disney World. What at first seems like a fantastical dream soon turns to reality, when the attractions at the Park begin coming to life when the DHIs cross over into the Magic Kingdom while sleeping. They're attacked by animatronic pirates from The Pirates of the Caribbean, the dolls from It's a Small World try to capsize their boat, a dinosaur fossil from the Thunder Mountain ride comes to life and starts chasing them. And then there's Maleficent, the witch from Sleeping Beauty, who appears to be all too real--and determined to stop the kids from solving The Stonecutter's Quill, the fable that Walt Disney passed along to save the Park from the Overtakers. THE KINGDOM KEEPERS is definitely an imaginative read, full of action, adventure, and suspense. For anyone who has ever visited the Magic Kingdom, you'll recognize the settings immediately. Even if you're not a frequent visitor of Disney World, this is one book that will bring the magic--both good and bad--to very realistic life. Reviewed by: Jennifer Wardrip, aka "The Genius"

Excellent!

The Kingdom Keeper books are really well written and very imaginative. Ridley Pearson should be a Disney Imagineer!

Good or Disney fanatics

First let me start with we are complete Disney fanatics. I also love other Ridley Pearson books. It caught my eye when we were on vacation at Disney World. That all said, this was an entertaining book. I really enjoyed some of the ins and outs of the parks. It was fun to read while we were vacationing there. The concept of virtual guides is also very interesting. It is a good read for the average Joe but if you are Disney junkies, it is a must.

The perfect adventure for Disney fans!

I won't bother with a synopsis since earlier reviewers have captured the main points. I bought this book because I am a huge Disney fan. I've been to WDW at least once a year since it opened in 1971. Which should also tell you I'm a bit older than the recommended reading age for this book! Reading this book is a little like a night time ride on Thunder Mountain. It's dark and eerie sometimes, but most of all, it's a wild ride. Lots of sharp turns, plunging drops and a scream out loud fun time. It's a strong enough story that even if you weren't familiar with the theme parks or Disney, it would capture most readers' imagination, regardless of their age. But, it's the ideal read for those of us who enjoy adventure/mysteries AND love Disney. It's great fun to read about all the places you've seen inside the parks, attractions you've ridden and characters you've loved (or not.) You'll love it.
