  1. Even though I’ve outgrown the reading level age for these books, they are still part of one of the best series in the world! :) :):):)

  2. Isabella says:

    Please make land of elyon into a movie I think it would be really exciting to see it come alive

  3. Julie says:

    Thank you so much for writing these books!!! I read all of them to my nine year old son and six year old daughter and am so sad that there are no more to read. I wish that the covers were available as prints because I would buy and frame all of them. I think I fell in love with the characters as much as my children!! We borrowed these books from our library but I will be buying all of them to keep. Such a beautiful story – thank you, thank you, thank you!

  4. Nicky says:

    Do you think that you would every make the elyon series into a movie

  5. Jennifer says:

    Mr. Patric Carmon, you’ve helped me successfully raise a reader! My sons (age 5 & 7) are enthralled by your books! We’re on the 5th book of the Land of Elyon & every evening we look forward with such anticipation to the next chapter! We LOVE the characters & all of the adventures. Thank you for writing these & giving my sons the most precious gift of all, the LOVE of READING!

  6. Lacy says:

    I am going to cry when this is finished

  7. Joe says:

    Where to start? Where to start….aha! OK, 1. This book series is amazing, I’ve read most of the books and probably will be sad when i finish the last one, which, you should right more like, books to… or something. And 2. I’m a teenager (13) and I still love these books, which brings me on to my second idea: make teen versions of the books, I mean I know you’re like a children’s author, but still teen versions of the books would be cool.. so yeah. Happy to put in input (haha) and great books bye.

  8. WhiteRaven says:

    I loved into the mist soooo much i made it into a school projec

  9. Samantha says:

    I love these books. i have read the dark hills divide, beyond the valley of thorns, into the mist, and i am reading the tenth city!! my favorite character is Murphy. the reason why i love Murphy is because he is a squirrel and that he is a hugger. the funniest character is Yipes. in Beyond The Valley Of Thorns he throws Murphy around while he screams on instinct. i really hope a movie company makes the movies so that we can visualize the characters better and to compare and contrast

  10. Isabela says:

    This book is awesome I cant wait to watch the movie of this story

  11. Erin says:

    hey Patrick, I have been a long time fan of the Elyon Series. I was still wondering if you were going to make those movies for this series? If so, let me know so I can audition for Alexa.

  12. kyia boggs says:

    i love the land of elyon series and i have read the entire series probably five times

  13. Serenity says:

    My favorite character in Into the Mist is Yipes because he is tiny and funny. But sense the 3 characters that are most mentioned areThorn, Thomas and Roland I want to say my actual most favorite character is Thorn because she protected Roland and is adveterous. My send favorite is Thomas because he is advterous too.

  14. Serenity says:

    You are the best author I have ever heard of. Sense this is the first book I’m reading by you I know that I’m definitley going to love the rest of your books Mr. Carman. And after I’m done with the series of The Land of Elyon i hope you have movies made so that I can watch them and see how close my visualization is to all of the characters. Thank you for writing The land of elyon. :)

  15. Serenity says:

    I have never stuck with a book before. When I saw your book Into the Mist in my school library I decided to check it out. I love it so much. I have never read a book with so much description in it. I can visualize so much in your book. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
