Extraordinary Sam: And The Adventurers' Guild by Kevin A Springer is an entertaining story for children which revolves around twelve-year-old Sam Miller. Life changes for Sam Miller after discovering a dull gray box with dented corners and a tattered lid, a birthday gift to him from his grandfather. Readers are then taken on an adventurous journey to another realm with Sam where they meet Cormac, the dark leader of the realm, lead pirates, solve riddles, fight warriors and much more. They also come face to face with a dragon. A lot of extraordinary things happen in Sam's life when he is in the other realm, which forces him to abandon his fear, trust his instincts and handle situations accordingly.

The subtle message of believing in oneself runs through the plot, which makes the book even more endearing to young readers. Sam's character is relatable and well portrayed by the author, and will make children long for some adventure in their lives. The style of writing is vivid and fluid, giving a good pace and movement to the story. The author's descriptions make the scenes and characters come alive. There are many entertaining parts in the story like that of meeting the dragon, and the part where the pirates come into the scenes. With a great cover design, it's an engaging book for children and will keep them glued to the pages till the very end. It's definitely a read for all those who love action and adventure.
