Family Review Center recently honored author D.L. Carroll, creator of the “Sir Licksalot” children’s book series, with the “Star Award” for 2015. The Star Award is to recognize outstanding companies and business owners. An interview with Carroll is published in the 2015 Awards Edition of the Family Review Center’s Magazine.
“I am humbled to have been chosen for this prestigious Star Award, said D.L. Carroll. “Having the knowledge that the company’s editor shared my books with her loved one, is the ultimate reward.”
Each book in the “Sir Licksalot” series is a fast paced thrilling adventure. The characters have very distinctive personalities and behaviors that mirror readers and their friends. The stories all have a magical destination and include friendship, conflict, mystery, imagination, and most importantly relatable language.
The books are written for reluctant and hi-low readers. What is special about this series is that the language is simple. The reader doesn’t have to re-read the sentence a couple of times to comprehend it. The chapters are short so the reader can retain what has been read. In addition, each book has a message. Readers find themselves learning new things without even realizing they are being taught.
