Description


Magic, fantasy, and adventure combine to create this fast-paced series perfect for young readers!

Pick a book. Grow a Reader!

This series is part of Scholastic's early chapter book line Branches, aimed at newly independent readers. With easy-to-read text, high-interest content, fast-paced plots, and illustrations on every page, these books will boost reading confidence and stamina. Branches books help readers grow!

A terrible darkness is spreading across Perodia. Thorn, a powerful vulture, is using dark magic (and his dark army of spies!) to destroy the magical land. A young owl named Tag may be the only one who can save it! Tag dreams of one day becoming a brave warrior, but he is small . . . In this first book, Tag and his best friend -- a squirrel named Skyla -- meet the last firehawk. Together, the three friends learn about a magical stone. Could this stone be powerful enough to defeat Thorn? This action-packed series makes a great introduction to fantasy and quest stories for newly independent readers. Realistic black-and-white artwork appears on every page!

Praise For…


A Publishers Weekly bestselling series!

Praise for The Last Firehawk #1: The Ember Stone:

"The first book in this new series brings the animal fantasy genre to early chapter book readers.... The adventure is nonstop, making this an ideal choice for reluctant readers.... Detailed black-and-white illustrations blend well with the text, and will keep kids engaged. VERDICT: A strong beginning to an adventure series for chapter book readers, especially those who are not quite ready for Erin Hunter's 'Warriors' or Kathryn Lasky's 'Guardians of Ga'Hoole.'" -- School Library Journal

"A promising start to a series for fledgling fantasy readers." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Branches books:

"These books should be considered for larger libraries wanting to enhance their easy-reader collections." -- School Library Journal

"A nice stepping stone to more advanced chapter books." -- Booklist
