Over Sea, Under Stone

Over Sea, Under Stone Cover

 

Staff Pick

Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising sequence is a classic in children's fantasy, and the entire series is wonderful. But I have a special fondness for the very first in the sequence, Over Sea, Under Stone. While visiting their mysterious "Great Uncle Merry" at his seaside home in Cornwall, three children find an ancient map that begins an epic quest involving the forces of light and dark. Subtle magic and hints of Arthurian legend make this a captivating lead-in to the mythic sequels.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

On holiday in Cornwall, the three Drew children discover an ancient map in the attic of the house that they are staying in. They know immediately that it is special. It is even more than that — the key to finding a grail, a source of power to fight the forces of evil known as the Dark. And in searching for it themselves, the Drews put their very lives in peril.

This is the first volume of Susan Cooper's brilliant and absorbing fantasy sequence known as The Dark Is Rising.
