Something odd is happening at Oldby school. A teacher suddenly acts strangely. A classmate disappears. Bizarre forces are at work and it's up to a motley crew of 5th graders to investigate. Written with the reluctant elementary reader in mind, Shield Academy's short chapters take the reader on an engaging adventure that nearly ends in the destruction of the universe. (Lexile Level: 750L/Grade level: 4/5) "It was good! Thumbs up and I will recommend to friends" -- Ryder (5th grade student).
