The Serpent’s Secret

By Sayantani Dasgupta

I received this review copy from Scholastics and then Supriya Kelkar mentioned it during her talk. I brought this on vacation and I am so glad I did.

This book is a pretty awesome book. I really like that it is a Multicultural story. It is not all American.

Kiran is an Indian princess. In the beginning, she doesn’t know this and thinks her parents are just calling her princess. Then her parents go missing and then on Halloween, which is her birthday, two trick and treaters show up at her house. Their names are Lal and Neel. They say she is a princess. This kicks off a wild adventure that involves two monsters, a new world and finding her parents.

This is the first book in a series. It features a very strong girl character mixed with magical monsters. It is the type of book a lot of kids would like. It is a thick book and younger readers might need to take their time. Older readers probably won’t want to put it down.
