– The Seeing Scroll –
A Children’s Mystery and Fantasy Adventure
A week after Gia’s grandfather died, he sent her a key. But her dad wouldn’t believe her.
With the help of her drama-king best friend, they set about finding what it opens and discover a curious riddle and an ancient scroll. It throws them momentarily back in time, luring them with visions — titbits of dangerous secrets, including dungeons, treasure and an Earl’s ship. Whose secrets are they? Why were they kept?
Meanwhile, police exhume her grandfather’s coffin; accuse him of theft, and there are people hunting for the scroll. Or are they searching for the treasure? But the allure of the Seeing Scroll is strong, and the kids soon decide that whatever Gia’s grandfather is involved in, is a secret too. It can surely help them. But is it wise to trust an enchanted parchment? Especially one that carries an ancient curse?
“Stray too long where you don’t belong and the world you’re from could be forever gone.”
A page-turning action adventure for children. Not too scary for grownups, either.
