WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, April 13, 2021 - Kingdom of Florida, Volume I, the special, single-volume hardcover collection of the first four books in Taylor Thomas Smythe’s middle-grade fantasy series, is now available.
The new hardbound book clocks in at 732 pages and features the full texts of Books 1 - 4 in the Kingdom of Florida series--The Golden Alligator, The Lamplight Society, The Place Beyond the Sea, and The Fountain of Youth—along with the original black-and-white illustrations by Alice Waller. The colorful dust jacket bears a matte-finish design featuring eye-catching tropical blues and greens.
The release comes after last fall’s debut of The Curse of Coronado (Book 5) and ahead of the upcoming, penultimate sixth novel in the series.
The series, which draws inspiration from such classics as The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, and L. Frank Baum’s Oz books, follows the journey of a group of South Florida children as they discover a magical parallel world ruled by an evil prince.
Kingdom of Florida, Volume I is available today. The first five individual Kingdom of Florida books are independently published and available via online booksellers and www.kingdomofflorida.com in paperback, hardcover, Kindle ebook, and — for the first two installments — audiobook.
