Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Theo is a bright boy who loves computer games and Greek myths. One day he falls mysteriously ill. The best doctors can find neither the cause nor the cure. His wealthy aunt Martha decides that Theo's only chance is to travel the globe in search of a solution, in the hope that something spiritual will set his body right. But this journey can be no ordinary one...."--BOOK JACKET. "Crisscrossing Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, Aunt Martha takes Theo on a tour of the world's religions, from Christianity, Judaism, and Islam and their various branches to Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Shinto, yoga, animism, and voodoo. At each stop, a special guide explains the tenets and the history of the faith and helps the child understand its spirituality. There is a lot for the skeptical Theo to sink his teeth into. But along the way he learns such facts as why Sikhs are forbidden to cut their hair, why Indiana Jones was looking for the Lost Ark of the Covenant in Ethiopia, and why Hindu pilgrims bathe in the Ganges."--BOOK JACKET.
