Janice Clark reviews “The Seer’s Stone”

Janice Clark is an American children’s writer, author of “The Hall of Doors” series. She’s reviewed “The Seer’s Stone” on her blog, Tea With the Black Dragon.

A very enjoyable book

Nicely illustrated by Jorge Beda and Mercedes Martin; many of the delightful interior illustrations make me think of old wood-cuts.

This is meant to be a collection of stories for children, and I’m sure the grandchildren will enjoy it, but I liked it, too. Crosby presents a dozen stories, closely tied to the history and legends of La Palma in the Canary Islands. The mysterious seer’s stone is a unifying thread for the stories, which cover events from 1493 to a little past the present day. Of course, as a fantasy and science fiction writer, Crosby throws in such elements as dragons, time travel, space ships,  and visiting aliens.
