Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Book 7 of The Treasure Chest, Maisie and Felix meet a young Alexander Graham Bell (the inventor of the telephone) in Edinborough, Scotland, just as he leaves for a year with his grandfather, an elocutionist, in London. When the twins get separated from Alexander, they join the thousands of orphans in the streets of Victorian London. Maisie becomes an orange seller and Felix a chimney sweep as they search the foggy streets for Alexander...and each other. Back at home, they cope with the upcoming wedding of Great Uncle Thorne, who makes them leave Elm Medona and return to the upstairs servants quarters.

Includes great non-fiction content with biographies of Alexander Graham Bell and Charles Dickens and Ann Hood's Favorite Facts from her research!

 

Synopsis:

Ann Hoods “delightful” (NYT) historical series continues with one of Americas great female heroes!

Great-Uncle Thorne sends Maisie, Felix, and the Ziff twins on a dangerous trip back in time through The Treasure Chest and into the Congo to find Amy Pickworth, Thornes missing aunt. When Maisie and Felix get separated from the twins, they use the magic of The Treasure Chest and find themselves in early twentieth-century Kansas with a young girl named Amelia Earhart.

Every Treasure Chest book features a biography of the featured historical figure along with Anns Favorite Facts from her research!

Synopsis:

While exploring The Treasure Chest, Felix and Maisie are transported to a Massachusetts farm in 1836. Disappointed that they have not landed in their beloved New York City, they wonder why they were brought to Massachusetts to meet a young girl named Clara Barton. Perhaps Clara has a message for the twins? Or maybe they have one for her?
