Vicki Sterling Hasty. Eliza and the Analogies of Burnshire. Baltimore: PublishAmerica, 2009.

Eliza wasn’t exactly thrilled about going to summer camp. She would have preferred to stay at home with her mother to practice her favorite activity—solving analogies. However, when her mother says she’s enrolled Eliza at Camp Camden, Eliza bravely packs a few trusty analogy books and gives camp a chance.

But then, just as Eliza begins to settle into the rhythm of camp, she stumbles upon a magic portal in the camp stable. It leads to the mystical land of Burnshire, where animals talk and the wicked king incinerates anyone who opposes him! The persecuted animals recruit Eliza and her friends to save Burnshire from the king by solving a series of analogies. Eliza’s skills are put to the test in this fast-paced fantasy adventure.

  1. I have read the novel. The detailed description of the emotion of Eliza when she first entered the camp and came across the animals made the story go further and more interesting. The ending of the novel was amazingly good! This is highly recommended!

  2. I haven’t finished the novel, but I have finished half-way. I especially love the character of Eliza in the novel and the adventure of hers after going through the magical portal was so thrilling and interesting…

  3. I’m intrigued. I’ll definitely read this novel. I’ll post my review about after it is read.
