Queen Liliuokalani #6: Royal Prisoner (Treasure Chest)by Ann Hood
Synopses & Reviews
The secrets of Elm Medona thicken . . . with Harry Houdini!
When Great-Uncle Thorne arrives at Elm Medona, Maisie and Felix's lives get shaken up again. Uncle Thorne moves the family into the mansion proper. One night, Great-Aunt Maisie arranges for Thorne, Maisie, and Felix to rendezvous with her in The Treasure Chest. Minutes later, Maisie and Felix find themselves at a magic show on Coney Island in 1893 starring Harry Houdini. As they follow him and his brother Dash to Pennsylvania and Rhode Island and back to New York City, they wonder what has become of Great-Aunt Maisie and Great-Uncle Thorne. Then one evening at Tom Pastor's Famous 14th Street Theater, the curtain opens and all is revealed.
In Book 6 of The Treasure Chest, Felix and Maisie take a trip to New York City to visit their father and meet his new girlfriend. While there, Maisie reveals to Felix that she has a jeweled crown she took from The Treasure Chest. The twins travel to Hawaii in the late 1800s, where they spend time with the royal family and continue to master the magic of time-travel. There, they meet a young girl named Lydia who will one day grow up to be Queen Liliuokalani, the last queen of Hawaii.
Return to The Treasure Chest with Felix and Maisie . . .
When Felix Robbins gets a crush on Lily Goldstein, a classmate who is adopted from China, he decides to try to take her back in time so that she can see the country where she was born. Maisie discovers his plot, and foils it. But the twins end up in a small village on the Yangtze River, where they meet a girl named Pearl Buck in the days just before the Boxer Rebellion. With bandits chasing them, will they ever find safety . . . and return home?
