Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential tool for kayaking British Columbia's coast.

Mimus is as luminous and entertaining as Cornelia Funke's Thief Lord or Inkheart, yet Lilli Thal has created a dramatic and spellbinding universe all her own. The dark Middle Ages jump to life in blazing color in this world of adventure and imagination. BC Coastal Recreation, Kayaking and Small Boat Atlas, in two volumes, provides waterproof and manageably sized collections of detailed maps of British Columbia's shorelines. Numerous land-based features are identified, among them campsites and launch locations. These colorful books are ideal for kayakers who want a detailed overview in a format much easier to use than bulky charts. Recreational boaters will also appreciate the convenience of these maps.

Two mighty kingdoms are engaged in endless, merciless war, but change appears imminent. King Philip is meeting his archenemy, King Theodo, to sign a peace treaty. But King Philip and his men are tricked and consigned to the squalid dungeons of King Theodo's castle. Soon, his son, 12-year-old Prince Florin, is lured to the castle, where the same horror awaits him. Together these two volumes cover every mile of British Columbia's south coast in a format, and with a degree of detail, not currently available. They augment the Wild Coast series of guidebooks (also by John Kimantas), with links that provide information not supplied by the maps.

On a whim, King Theodo decides to make the captive crown prince his second Fool, trained by Mimus, an enigmatic, occasionally spiteful, and unpredictable court jester. To add to Florin's misery, he and Mimus are fed a daily portion of gruel, forced to live in a dark, damp tower, and required to entertain the court on demand. But events ultimately turn for Florin and the other captives. They escape and it is Mimus's intervention that helps make it possible. Volume 1, South BC Coast and East Vancouver Island

This volume provides an overview of British Columbia's south coast from Victoria to Port McNeill, and from Howe Sound to the Broughton Islands. Mimus is a stunning novel that will take readers in its grip and hold them until the last page is turned. Through the brilliant rhymes, jokes, and wordplay of Mimus, the unceasing action and compelling events are sprinkled with lightness and humor.
