So happy to share some wonderful reviews of The Tukor’s Journey. I am grateful to those who invested their time in the new book, and so excited that they enjoyed it. After a record breaking winter blizzard in April, these reviews warm my heart!
A review from Alex Lopez on NetGalley: “What a fun and adventurous book! Jeannine Kellogg’s imagination just flows through the page and brings Mitch, Tony, and Jovi to life with such vividness. Would recommend if you like book series like “The Spiderwick Chronicles” by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black or “Fablehaven” by Brandon Mull.”
“I loved this book! It draws you in from the very first page. It felt like the kind of storytelling that was reminiscent of my childhood the kind of story that is told for generations. Ms. Kellogg’s approach to the two different story lines of the siblings and the history of the Tukor and Grezniks definitely creates an intriguing book. This is definitely a book that kids and adults can sink their teeth into with humor, science fiction, drama, mystery, geography, history, and time travel. I cannot wait for my son to read this book so we can discuss it together. I may have to re-read it with him because the size of the book may intimidate him. Nothing to fear though. The story moves quick!” Maria’s Space blogger. Click here to read the full review.
“An outstanding read, that takes you to actual places around the world and introduces you to rare animals, while you journey with three children and some scary mythological beings. The story twists and turns and you get absorbed in the journey. This a book that when you start reading is hard to put down until one has finished it.” Silvia McGrath, Professor Owl’s Book review.

“I recently had the chance to review The Tukor’s Journey, a book written to appeal to a hard-to-reach audience of pre-teen and young teen boys. The author intentionally wrote this book to appeal to them, but without using cheap or stereotypical humor. Instead, she writes a book that echoes challenges that are faced in real life, encouraging readers to rise above struggles and work towards a higher calling. The book might look intimidating to reluctant readers because of its size, but it’s easy to stay engaged. The characters and themes are relatable, with enough elements of the fantastical to appeal to those with a vivid imagination, or encourage kids to explore a world that is not our own…it’s a good read, and even many kids who don’t love reading will be drawn in to the story.” Motherhood Moment Blog.

A new review from a student reader, forwarded from a high school librarian:“I loved it! It was really good. I just keep forgetting to bring it in. It ended too soon. I hate waiting for authors to write more books because it takes a long time to write books. I liked how fantastical it was and the story was really clear. I don’t usually like fantasy except for the Warrior series. I usually read history fiction but this was really good.”
I’m excited to share more soon!
