Hank Hudson by Clark Chamberlain, the first volume in a new series aimed at middle grade readers, is an absolute triumph of a story, and one that will hook readers of all ages from the very start! Many people in the know in the world of literature are aware that books for middle grade readers are the new "it" place to be, the place to find truly inventive and fantastic work that isn't available in much of the work being released for adults right now. Clark Chamberlain's work certainly doesn't disappoint. Follow our young hero, Hank Hudson, and his unique pet dog, Dog, as they set out on an epic adventure to find Hank's family after they have inadvertently left him behind as they moved across the country in search of a better life during the Great Depression. This book is one that readers will not be able to put down. And throw in the duo's discovery of a secret, a hidden world where there are powers and treasures Hank had no inkling of, and you've got a story that you simply won't be able to forget.
I simply cannot recommend Hank Hudson: Volume One any more highly than I am. This book has all the elements of an absolute smash hit, and I could see it being made into an extremely fun and exciting movie. Many, many readers would enjoy author Clark Chamberlain's book, including his intended audience of young readers, all the way up to adults who love a great read in the fantasy genre. The story ends with an exciting cliffhanger, and I, for one, simply cannot wait to read the next volume. Clark Chamberlain, I hope you are hard at work on the next Hank Hudson book ... write fast!
