“An Ancient Prophecy. A Giant Quest. A Plethora of Homonyms.
Thirteen-year-old Toby Baxter is in a foul mood, and sitting in the middle seat on an eight-hour flight isn’t helping. Nor is the fact that he has to read Of Mice and Men on his vacation! His vacation—and mood—is interrupted, however, when he’s summoned back to RiverHome, landing him in the middle of a giant uprising. Linked by an ancient prophecy to his former arch-nemesis, Clygon, Toby is tasked with repairing the Sword—the lifeblood of RiverHome. To do so, the one-time enemies must battle rebel giants, trolls, stalagmites, and a primeval force in the form of a snake residing in Para-dies. Faced once again with an impossible challenge, will Toby seek the GOOD, or will his foul mood and growing anxieties sidetrack him from his call to be a HERO?

Filled with humor, tongue-in-cheek dialogue, and heroic life lessons, Aloha RiverHome: The GOOD Prophecy continues the magical adventures of Toby Baxter as he learns what it means to be a wise, good, hero. Toby’s latest Quest is the perfect read for middle schoolers, their parents and grandparents, and anyone looking for a unique, engaging, fast-paced fantasy adventure.

Whether or not you’ve kept up with The Adventures of Toby Baxter series, you’ll want to pick up Book 3 in the series, Aloha RiverHome—The GOOD Prophecy! It’s an exciting and unique adventurous Maui experience that you won’t find on a typical and regular Hawaiian family vacation.

In thirteen-year-old Toby Baxter’s latest adventure, the portal-crossing kid is back again in RiverHome while his family is vacationing in Hawaii. He thought his dealings with the life force of RiverHome, the Sword, and its back-up, Loach, were over. But it turns out he’s going to have to venture into the land of giants (if they still exist) to repair the now-broken Sword. This time around, Toby’s adventure is full of caves, stalagmites, and stalactites—but not the kind you’re thinking of. These ones are much more lethal. And much creepier and goop-like, respectively. And just like the other adventures, Toby has a big prophecy to fulfill. But can he, do it?

This is a wonderful, well-written, and spirited middle-grade fantasy adventure story. Just like Toby gets pulled through portals into RiverHome, Tim Wright knows exactly how to pull a young reader in with his exciting plot and relatable main character, Toby. Other characters featured are friends and nemeses, and while there is a lot of action, it’s balanced with comedic dialogue and Toby’s curious teenage contemplations. Unlike the other Toby Baxter books, this one carries an impactful, touching sentiment, as it is dedicated to the people who lost their lives, livelihoods, homes, land, and more in the devastating 2023 Lahaina, Hawaii fires.

Toby’s adventure is altogether thrilling, wholesome, fun, and extraordinary. It’s highly engaging for kids, teens, and adults. And with its unforgettably witty banter and fast-paced fantastical plot, it’s sure to leave readers endlessly entertained! It can easily be read as a standalone as Tim Wright cleverly begins with the “Toby Baxter Primer” where he introduces Toby, the characters and the setting. Thereby giving new readers an idea of what this wonderful adventurous series is about. The Adventures of Toby Baxter–Book 3: Aloha RiverHome–The GOOD Prophecy comes highly recommended by Chick Lit Book Café.  Book Reviewed by Micah Giordonela for CLBC-Multi-Genre Literary Reviews.Alt="The adventures of toby baxter"
