Blizzard Entertainment and Scholastic have teamed up for an Alliance that brings a Horde of young readers into the world of Warcraft this fall. (See what I did there?) World of Warcraft: Traveler is a new series for readers ages 8-12 and will introduce your kids to Azeroth this November.
Written by Greg Weisman, who just wrapped up the fascinating Star Wars Rebels comic book series Star Wars: Kanan, World of Warcraft: Traveler shows readers Azeroth from a child’s point of view for the first time:
It’s been years since twelve-year-old Aramar Thorne, a clever boy who is never without his precious sketch book, has seen his father. So when Captain Greydon Thorne comes ashore and asks his son to join him at sea, it feels as if someone has redrawn Aram’s entire world. Before he knows it, Aram is aboard the Wavestrider with Lakeshire fading to a distant dot on the horizon.
My 7-year-old daughter has teamed up with us a few times as a newbie in World of Warcraft, and she is captivated by the vibrant world and its creatures. This book series promises to be just as intriguing for young readers.
Blizzard Entertainment is masterful at creating exciting trailers, so it’s no surprise that they have one ready to give you the lowdown on the new series:
World of Warcraft: Traveler hits bookstore shelves November 2016, followed by the second book in the series in November 2017.
