Book Signing with Ridley Pearson
Get your imagination ready and give a warm welcome to New York Best-Selling Author, Ridley Pearson, as we celebrate the release of his two latest books featuring new adventures of the Kingdom Keepers, The Return: Disney Lands and The Syndrome. Ridley will be on hand for book signings March 28, 2015 at the Disneyland® Resort. See appearance schedule below for times of signings.
The Return: Disney Lands
With the defeat of the Overtakers behind them, the five teenagers known as the Kingdom Keepers should be celebrating. By all accounts they saved Disneyland from certain destruction. Why then did their mentor leave one last puzzle for them to decipher? The Keepers must solve a puzzle of the past, or be crushed under an evil that makes the Overtakers seem like gentle souls.
Fans of the Kingdom Keepers will devour this captivating stand-alone adventure told from the point of view of the Fairlies. When Amanda travels east to Orlando on a hunch, she’s met with the worst news possible. Kingdom Keeper Finn Whitman is missing. Calling on her own gift (she’s telekinetic), her sister Jess’s ability to dream the future, and their fellow Fairlie Mattie Weaver’s unexplained ability to read minds through physical contact, the three gifted girls must navigate treachery, deception, and the stubborn, unwilling parents of the missing Keepers if they’re to save their friends. As a special bonus, an excerpt of Disney Lands, the first book in the new Kingdom Keepers series, The Return, is included.
March 28 – Disneyana, Disneyland® park 10a.m-Noon
March 28 – World of Disney® Store, Downtown Disney® District from 2-4p.m.
