Product Description

When Aunt Adelaide sends thirteen-year-old cousins Ivan and Daphne on a treasure hunt in the rain, they never expect to stumble into a whole new world--an enchanting land where words and numbers run wild. They are surprised again when the first people they meet beg them to find Lexicon's missing children, who have wandered off, bewitched by lights in the sky.


Trekking between villages in search of clues, the cousins encounter a plague of punctuation, a curious creature, a fog of forgetting, the Mistress of Metaphor, a panel of poets, and the illogical mathematicians of Irrationality. But when a careless Mathemystical reflects them across the border into the ominous Land of Night, their peril deepens.

Kidnapped, imprisoned, and mesmerized--with time running out--will Daphne and Ivan find a way to solve the mystery of lights in the sky and restore the lost children of Lexicon to their homes?

About the Author Pendred Noyce
When I was a child, I wanted more than anything to go to C.S. Lewis's land of Narnia. My sister and I probed dark closets, leaped over rivers, and ran down hills with our eyes closed, calling on Aslan to transport us to that magical world. Click Here to read more



About the Artist Joan Charles
I grew up in a big family, in a house very much like Aunt Adelaide's--filled with books, games, and imagination. As a child I read, put on puppet shows, wrote and illustrated a family newspaper, and played endless games of Parcheesi with my sisters on rainy summer days. Click Here to read more

The website offers a variety of Games & Activties


In my opinion this book goes above & beyond the "typical" book. The imagination used in writing this book will bring any child up to the next level. This book is targeted towards children ages 9 to 12 which is perfectly age appropriate.  It’s good for kids alone or for kids and parents reading together.

If your child needs more imagination & less TV/video games this book is perfect to keep them entertained.
