Tony Abbott grew up with books in the house, as he has two parents who taught. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio with a brother was a great reader, and his father always wrote so the clicking keys of his father’s typewriter made for the background music of Tony’s childhood. The most important thing to know about the man is that he loves reading and books. He has learned a lot from all the books he has read and his library of books is quite vast. When he was eight, his dad got a job as a professor, teaching American history, which forced him and his family to relocate to Fairfield Connecticut. Both Tony and his brother would go to the University of Connecticut, where Tony would go through two majors (music then psychology), before he would decide to major in English literature. He worked in a college library, where he met his wife, and worked in different bookstores, and a publishing company. For many years, he wrote a lot of poetry. Besides writing novels, he also keeps up a blog called Friday Book Report and he became a member of Lesley University’s Creative Writing faculty (located in Cambridge, Massachusetts). He lives and works in Connecticut with his pair of dogs, two daughters, and his wife.

He has written dozens of books for children between the ages of six and fourteen. This includes many series like the “Danger Guys” series, “Secrets of Droon” series, “The Weird Zone” series, “The Copernicus Legacy”, “The Haunting of Derek Stone”, and “Underworld” series; as well as some stand alone novels. Tony’s books have sold very well, with twelve million copies being sold worldwide, with his books being translated into many languages. This all after taking writing lessons from Patricia Reilly Giff (a renowned author of children’s books) and failing many times to even get published; finally, he was able to get his first book “Danger Guys” published. He got the spark to write from reading to his kids when it was time to go to bed.

Many of Abbott’s books have been named Children’s Book of the Month and Junior Library Guild; they have also found their way onto state reading lists. “Firegirl” won the Society of Children’s Book Writer’s and Illustrators Golden Kite Award. In 2009, “The Postcard” won Mystery Writers of America’s Poe Award for best mystery in the juvenile category.

“The Hidden Stairs and the Magic Carpet” is the first book in the “Secrets of Droon” series. Three friends (Neal, Julie, and Eric) find a tiny room located underneath some stairs. Upon entering the room, they find themselves in a magical world full of flying lizards and shiny red men. They find themselves facing great challenges to survive and try to get back home.

Fans of the novel say that the novel offers characters for everyone to relate to, boys and girls, and Abbott creates a world where the characters fight intricate and ever-evolving struggle. The novels are so good that readers cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out so they can read them with their parents or kids (whichever the case may be). The novels serve as great material for reading and even bonding with.

Some readers did not like the novel for the way that Abbott takes from other kids books and boils down other things books do and puts it into an eighty page book to create something that is not as good as what he is ripping off but making children love them anyway.

“Journey to the Volcano Palace” is the second book in the “Secrets of Droon” series. The three friends (Neal, Julie, and Eric) are faced with a problem. Lord Sparr, a nasty man, has taken a jewel that has magic powers from their friend, Princess Keeah. She is need of their help. They know where it is, which is fine, if only the place was not located inside a volcano.

Fans of the novel liked the magic found in the story, and features interesting characters, fun fantasy, and a good story. The plot is not predictable, you never know what is going to happen next, and there are black and white characters (which some found to be good for the young audience, just right for them to handle).

Readers did not like the novel and say that if you do not like the series from the first, you never will. Some felt that the series just gets worse, and the books are shorter, and feel even more rushed as you go.

“The Mysterious Island” is the third book in the “Secrets of Droon” series. Eric, Neal, and Julie are sailing with their good friend Princess Keeah when they find themselves in the middle of a magical storm. They wind up shipwrecked on an island that belongs to a witch who is one of Lord Sparr’s. They must get off the island before Lord Sparr himself comes and gets them.

Fans of the novel liked how imaginative and enjoyable the book was, it matched the first two books. Parents like the books because it gets their kids, who typically do not like to read to read and read a lot. There are some who believe that the books are like the “Magic Treehouse” books.

Some readers did not like how easy it was for the group to beat Lord Sparr and his minions.

“City in the Clouds” is the fourth book in “The Secrets of Droon” series. Neal has turned into a bug again. Julie and Eric hope that there is someone in Droon who can help them with this problem. Princess Keeah thinks that there might be a cure but they will have to go to the City in the Clouds that is called Ro. They will have to do it within a day because the city will disappear after that.

Fans have seen their interest grow and grow with each book; giving them a lot of role-playing while reading to do with each and every book. Readers could not help but want to find out to their favorite characters. They enjoyed the book and could not wait for the next installment in the series.

Some readers did not like the way that the book ripped off from other, better book series.
