The Emerald Atlas

By: John Stephens

Book Talk

Three ancient lost books of magic, and three abandoned children wandering from one orphanage to another… what could they possibly have in common? Kate has only a vague memory of the night her mother entrusted her younger brother and sister to her care—the same the night her parents disappeared from their lives. After ten years, she may have found some answers to her questions in the strange, new orphanage where they land, but it is a place wrapped in mystery, where they are the only orphans present. Doors appear in blank walls, photographs carry the children to a time past, and magic begins to appear all around them. Kate, Michael, and Emma have to draw on all their reserves of courage and reason to carry them through a whirlwind of harrowing adventures… and closer to the truth of what happened to their parents.
