    Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid.

    Book Reviews. Flight Named as one of ’s Best Novels - Akron Beacon Journal "an inherently riveting novel and one that showcases author Bob Adamov's genuine flair for originality, deftly crafted and memorable characters, as well as more plot twists and turns than a Coney Island roller coaster. - Midwest Book Review Chincoteague Calm "A Great Local Book" - Eastern Shore of Virginia. All the ponies on Assateague are small because their ancestors come from ponies in a part of Europe that are small. The ponies eat salty grass on the windy island, and there isn’t much shelter. In the Misty book, you will read a legend about how ponies came to America hundreds of years ago when a ship is wrecked and the ponies swim to shore.
