The Order of the Scribes has fallen. Jaiden and Anjali have until sunrise to find the mythical kings, or legends will be lost forever.
The day after the Day of the Dead, eleven year-old Jaiden and thirteen year-old Anjali Medina wonder why Papa never arrives to pick them up for visitation. Under the impression he is running late they go to the library for Story Time Tuesday and expect to meet him later. Nothing goes according to plan when the Storyteller learns of Papa’s absence.
Jaiden and Anjali discover Papa is a member of the Order of the Scribes, a secret organization that has existed since the time of Assyrian kings to protect the first great library of the world. The Order has fallen and the Lord of Forgetfulness has returned with the intention of erasing the memory of stories from the world.
Now Jaiden and Anjali have until sunrise—in the mortal realm—to find the mythical kings—in the story realm—and lead them into battle against a great darkness before its shadow crosses the veil between realms.
To succeed they must apply everything Papa has taught them about mythology and legend, and most importantly they must learn to use the their imagination. For it is in the power of their imagination where they find the beauty and magic only found in books.
This is a story I decided to write to inspire in my children a love of books and reading. In the words of author, Frank Serafini, “There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.”
For my children and yours, I would love to see Jaiden and Anjali and the Mythical Kings become that book.
For it is a story that emphasizes the positive influence children will have in the presence of an involved father and in discovering the wonder in their family heritage. It encourages young girls to be confident in who they are, and encourages boys to overcome their fears while teaching children about the adventures of mythology.
