After meeting an outspoken girl with strange hair that changes colors with her mood, he is swept into a futuristic world filled with dragonlike creatures, vast technology, and enslaved giants.But Simon also stumbles upon a secret: He can perform magic in this parallel world! While fighting mystical creatures, unraveling an ancient mystery, and even experiencing his first kiss, Simon discovers that he, an outsider from Earth, is the only person who can save the high-tech planet from an impending doom.Parallel to Simon's adventures is a mystery involving a catlike spy and a magical swordsman who both struggle to maintain peace among the paraworlds. But evil lurks in unexpected places, and few people can be trusted.

Out of this Paraworld!

Tweeners will thoroughly enjoy the audio recording of Paraworld Zero by Matthew and Alicia Peterson. My kids, already loyal Paraworld fans, delighted in hearing their favorite characters come to life. The story is chalk-full of humor and character which will keep young listeners captivated until the surprise ending. We can’t wait to see what Simon will do next!

Great Book.

I really enjoyed this book. There was a similiar feel to Harry Potter but I thought the plot was even better in this book. Every time I was in the car my kids wouldn't let us listen to anything else. I hear Book 2 is in the process of being written. We can't wait.
