by Alex Polan
This book begins with Marco's letter to his parents from Camp Pikachu explaining that he gets to ride a zip line! This caught my boys' attention immediately because they've been zip lining twice now and thought it was a blast, so they could definitely relate to Marco's fear and enthusiasm about the sport. My kids have had a great time at Scout camp, but they were able to imagine how even greater camp would be if it involved Pokémon catching! At 110 pages with kid-friendly language and lots of action, Capturing Cresselia is the ideal book for reluctant readers (ages 8-12) and, of course, fans of Pokémon!
About the author:
Alex Polan began collecting Pokémon cards in 1998. He lives just north of San Francisco in a house overlooking the Pacific Ocean, where he sometimes imagines he sees the legendary Pokémon Kyogre. Alex has a wife, two sons, and a cat that is every bit as gruff and grouchy as Meowth.
