Kingdom Keepers Boxed Set: Featuring Kingdom Keepers

In book one, five young teens tapped as models for theme park "guides" find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls. Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI-which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging-Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park. The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming?

Ridley Pearson

Ridley Pearson, born on March 13, 1953 in Glen Cove, New York, is an American writer. Pearson writes mostly suspense and thrillers, but has more recently begun writing novels for children.

Literary career

Pearson's novels for adults include "Undercurrents" (1988), "The Angel Maker" (1993), "No Witnesses" (1994), "Chain of Evidence" (1995), "Beyond Recognition" (1997), and "The Body of David Hayes" (2004). Pearson became the first American to receive the Raymond Chandler-Fulbright Fellowship at Oxford University in 1991. Many of his stories are set in the neighborhoods in and around Seattle, Washington, many featuring the Seattle Police detective Lou Boldt and forensic psychologist Daphne Mathews.

After his daughter asked him how Peter Pan met Captain Hook, Pearson teamed up with his long-time friend humorist Dave Barry to co-author "Peter and the Starcatchers", a prequel to "Peter Pan", which is published in the US by Disney and by Walker Books in the UK. Pearson and Barry have produced two further prequels – "Peter and the Shadow Thieves" and "Peter and the Secret of Rundoon" – and have announced a fourth called "Peter and the Sword of Mercy". [http://www.ridleypearson.com/appearances.html] Pearson has since been employed by Disney to author a novel set inside the Magic Kingdom theme park in Orlando, Florida. Named "The Kingdom Keepers", it features Disney characters coming to life and Walt Disney leaving clues for the secrets of the park. He has also written a sequel to that novel.

He is also the author of ""—adapted as the film "The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer" (2003)—and three mysteries featuring Chris Klick, under the pseudonyms of Joyce Reardon, Ph.D., and Wendell McCall, respectively.

Personal life

He was raised by his parents, Robert and Betsy Pearson, in Riverside Connecticut along with his siblings Bradley and Wendy. He was educated at the Pomfret School, The University Of Kansas, and Brown University. He currently lives in Saint Louis, Missouri with his wife Marcelle, and their two daughters Paige and Storey.

He also plays bass guitar and sings for the Rock Bottom Remainders, a band of published authors.
