Acea and the Animal Kingdom
by Kyle Shoop
Welcome to the Animal Kingdom – where mystery and adventure roam free!
Twelve-year-old Acea Bishop was always the nerdy kid who would rather go to the library during recess to read about animals instead of playing basketball like the other boys. Now, after waking up inside of an ancient kingdom strangely resembling a zoo, Acea is running from those same animals he used to love reading about.
Worse yet? Acea’s not just on a quest to get home – his mom and the dad-he-never-knew are both being held hostage inside by an evil sorcerer with a vendetta. Realizing that his odds of survival and freeing his parents are slim, Acea raises an army of animals to combat the sorcerer and regain control of the kingdom which houses mysteries into his past.
Acea has secrets. Big ones. He just doesn’t know it yet.
