Publisher's Summary

From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler meets The Apothecary in this time-bending mystery from best-selling author Carol Goodman!
The day Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, four 13-year-olds converge at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where an eccentric curator is seeking four uncommonly brave souls to track down the hidden pages of the Kelmsbury Manuscript, an ancient book of Arthurian legends that lies scattered within the museum's collection and that holds the key to preventing a second attack on American soil.
When Madge, Joe, Kiku, and Walt agree to help, they have no idea that the Kelmsbury is already working its magic on them. But they begin to develop extraordinary powers and experience the feelings of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Morgan le Fay, and Lancelot: courage, friendship, love...and betrayal. Are they playing out a legend that's already been lived, over and over, across the ages? Or can the Metropolitans forge their own story?

Great for children and adults alike!

Truly enjoyed this one and I hope it becomes a series! Carol Goodman is always binge worthy, but this one really hits the mark on super touching and enjoyable storytelling for all ages!!!

I appreciate the use of historical and mythological events that create a new story that is impossible to put down!

The performer is also wonderfully pleasant to the ear and does a lovely job of differentiation between characters a I personally much prefer this to some of the “full cast” styles of production. Of course having such a strong and versatile performer, who I imagine had the guidance of a string director, is a gem to be treasured!

Very much recommended!
