An Honorable Mention for this Multi-Award-Winning Novel

NZ_Mammoth_Trouble_v2_300dpi_200x300This first book in the Noah Zarc science fiction series is ideal for kids as young as 8 and as old as 14, depending on reading level and parental involvement.

Noah lives for piloting spaceships through time, dodging killer robots and saving Earth’s animals from extinction. Life couldn’t be better. But the twelve-year-old time traveler learns it could be a whole lot worse. His mom is kidnapped and taken to Mars; his dad is stranded in the Ice Age; and Noah is attacked at every turn by a foe bent on destroying Earth… for the second time.

If you’re looking for an out-of-this-world, action-packed adventure, and love such books as Percy Jackson, The Softwire, Artemis Fowl, or The Search for Wondla, then Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble needs to be your next thrill ride.

Be sure to read the rest of Noah’s adventures through space and time, with Book 2 of the series, Noah Zarc: Cataclysm, and Book 3, Noah Zarc: Declaration.


Eric-Hoffer-Award-Banner_2014 Eric Hoffer Award 2014 – Honorable Mention – Young Adult (Juvenile and YA)

It’s always exciting to win awards, and Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble by D. Robert Pease has won several. The Eric Hoffer Award is just the latest, and frankly, perhaps one of the most difficult to obtain.

First, there’s no telling how many hundreds of entries they had in this category; we can only guess, as they’ve not publicized the number. Second, the category itself – Young Adult – is actually a mix of “juvenile” and “young adult” titles. That makes it tougher for a book like Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble, which is really targeted at a younger “middle grade” audience.

Nonetheless, the judges at the Eric Hoffer Awards made this wonderful book one of its Honorable Mentions in this broad category, ultimately making it one of the top 7 books in the category.

We congratulate D. Robert Pease on his continued success. We also hope that if you have kids between the ages of 8 and 14 who love great science fiction adventures (boys or girls, as there are great characters with whom each of them can relate), you’ll check out the full Noah Zarc series, which you can find here: Middle Grade Books.
