The Secret History of Tom Trueheart Series

By Ian Beck
Level 6

This is a great book for both good readers and reluctant readers! Not only are the plot and characters engaging, but I was impressed with how this modern-written book maintains a classic, timeless fairytale feel. While full of adventure and imagination, this book supports strong families and loyalty to family as well as courage, moral behavior, and persistence. This is a relatively quick read but also contains delightful language. This book is currently out of print, but used copies are available on or, and it might be available in your local library. This clean book contains no questionable language or content and supports good values. Be aware that the ending does not tie up all the loose strings, and readers will probably want to read its sequel, which is also a part of this reading program.
