Adventure, fantasy and fast paced excitement- it's all in the Emerald Atlas

Status: Bookseller Picks


The Emerald Atlas (Books of Beginning Series #1)




Imagine three kids who are orphans but feel like their parents are still out there somewhere.  They are shuffled from orphanage to orphanage until they end up as the only children at a creepy orphanage owned by the mysterious Dr. Pym.

An old book which takes the children through time is coveted by a horrible woman named the Countess- think Cruella De Ville!  There are brave and noble dwarves, the heroic Gabriel and a cast of evil creatures who make this the next Percy Jackson or Harry Potter!  The book is one of three- named after the mysterious books.  Can you say movie rights... This will be a successful trilogy.
