Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

London, 1877. Twelve-year-old Hope Glover climbs a tree to rescue a kite but instead finds the kite pulling her into the sky, over the ocean, and into a storm! She is rescued by a small, beautiful ship--the Basset--and drawn into a magical world where a war rages between centaurs and winged horses. It's up to Hope to find a solution which turns out to include an out-of-practice genie, a new pair of wings, and the legendary Pandora's box itself! Middle-grade boys and girls will be swept up in this first exciting adventure in the fantastic world of the Basset!

Synopsis:

While climbing a tree to rescue a kite, 11-year-old Hope is pulled into the sky, away from the reality of life in London in 1867, and into a world of magic.
