Britfield & the Lost Crown (Book 1)

Author: C.R. Stewart
386 pages
Juvenile fiction

The story of Britfield & the Lost Crown takes place in the United Kingdom. After escaping from the orphanage in a hot air balloon, the reader will follow along as Tom and his best friend Sarah are chased by Detective Gowerstone and his police force.

While caught up in the action taking them from Yorkshire to the shores of Dover, readers will be exposed to the rich geography, history, and architecture of England.

Along their journey, Tom and Sarah will befriend two professors. The professors will eventually help them on their way to discover if Tom’s parents are truly still alive and if he is, indeed, heir to the throne.

This novel also has a companion Study Guide, which is personally described by a homeschool mom:

“I found the Britfield Study Guide to be well thought out and thorough. Available for free to teachers and homeschoolers, the study guide includes learning opportunities focusing on vocabulary, comprehension, and “Going Deeper” exercises which encourage learners to think beyond the story. Portions of the study guide also include “Learn More with Technology” which assists learners in becoming familiar with online research.”

The study guide companion is an e-book that can be downloaded and printed. Containing vocabulary study, comprehension, and further in-depth questions, it is a comprehensive guide. It also includes suggestions for ways to enrich learning through further study of the people and places mentioned in the novel.

In addition to the study guide, the website also includes information and pictures about the locations mentioned in the novel to use in enhancing your study.
