Posted by webmaster
To coincide with the recent release of RANGER'S APPRENTICE: THE SIEGE OF MACINDAW --- the 6th book in John Flanagan's bestselling medieval fantasy about a lively 15-year-old boy living in Castle Redmont --- Penguin Young Readers Group has launched a theatrical bus tour entitled “Escape to Araluen.”

Hitting 22 cities nationwide, “Escape to Araluen” features three actors who are traveling across the country in the Rangers Apprentice tour bus to act out scenes from the first installment of the series. You can follow their adventures online at, where you'll find an interactive map that showcases videos from the road. Performances will include music, sound effects, prizes, an interactive apprentice selection ceremony, and an eight-foot tall villain. Each show will be followed by a book signing with the actors, where you can receive a special “Escape from Araluen” stamp and Ranger pin.

You can also check out the trio's behind-the-scenes videos and performances directly, here. Be sure to visit the series' official site for more information on the books, and to see if they’ll be traveling to your city!
