|The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens (2011)|
Containing elements of Harry Potter, Narnia, and Fablehaven, this is an engaging fantasy with the makings of a classic. It is fresh and original, with a voice and characters all its own. Kate was only four; Michael, two; and Emma a baby when they were whisked away from their parents on a snowy Christmas Eve night. Ten years later, after bouncing from one orphanage to the next, they find themselves at a mysterious orphanage run by Dr. Stanislaus Pym. There, they discover a hidden book that transports them to the past, where an evil witch holds the town captive. Prophecies, wizards, argumentative dwarves, and an ancient evil all make an appearance in this epic adventure, but at its heart it is the tale of three children, their search to discover the fate of their parents, and their bickering, loyal, entirely believable relationship. Ages 10 and up. –Tracy, Book Picks Winter 2011/2012
