Genre: Children /Middle Grade
Published: Fantastic Press (July 23, 2013)
Zoe and Zak are back in India. Again. And this time they’re attending Moonstock Himalayan Boarding School, which might seem fun except for the fact that the school is a little strange. Students ride elephants instead of school buses, snarling monkeys work as security guards, and angry parrots monitor the halls. And even when they manage to get used to the wildlife, the food is absolutely terrible.But living with a bunch of other kids their age can be a lot of fun too, or at least it seems that way until Zoe’s roommate goes missing. Following the directions written on a steamy bathroom mirror, Zoe and Zak fly through the clouds on their magic carpet to learn that the two of them have been chosen yet again. This time they’ve been asked to lift the Yogi’s Curse.It’s not going to be easy. Zoe and Zak don’t even know what the Yogi’s Curse is let alone how to lift it, but like it or not, they soon discover that a whole lot of people are depending on them. Now, if they’re going to save the day, they’re going to have to fool the monkey guards, avoid the nasty parrots, and maybe even develop a supernatural ability or two. Because lurking beneath Moonstock is a powerful new enemy. And if Zoe and Zak can’t stop him, nobody can.
I loved the first book in the series and was hoping that The Yogi’s Curse wouldn’t be a disappointment and it wasn’t. As soon as I started reading I knew I was going to experience another great adventure with the duo. I love both Zoe and Zak their humor is so funny at times. With talk about elephant snot and the likes this book would definitely appeal to middle grade children.
Zoe’s Yogi powers were changing and there are some great things in the book which you will be saying WOW to.
A great read for both children and adults, well written and I look forward to reading the third book in the series.
