When Jorie and Rufus planned another summer of adventuring, they didn’t plan on sharing it with a snooty, stuck-up, bossy 10-year-old Nigel. When the Wizard Grootmonya calls on Jorie to remedy another disaster in Cabrynthius — the theft of the Magic Stones, Jorie grabs the Gold Key and the three children descend to the enchanted land beneath the Tarn. There they find more extraordinary adventures that bring them face to face again with the wicked Lord Fodomalk and his evil butterfly. Their troubles grow as the fiendish dragon not only snatches Nigel, but confines him to a cold dank cell with the illusive Professor Schrinch (yes, he’s still alive and as sneaky as ever). Jorie and Rufus — and the persnickety Nigel — are joined by all their old friends in this rollicking tale of magic, strange impersonations, and hair-raising exploits. They help Master Nigel with his confusion of the world beneath the Tarn and discover strengths in their new friend that even he didn’t know he had. Aside from spurts of jealousy from Rufus and impatience from Jorie, Nigel learns about bravery and friendship as he struggles with belief and enchantment. Follow this feisty threesome back to the evil, dark world of Shyloxia and the beautiful, bright world of Cabrynthius, where live all manner of creatures, naughty and nice. Do they recover the Magic Stones? What does that Gold Key open for them? Do they survive the shadowy world of nasty characters? Do Jorie and Rufus accept Nigel into their world? And what about Chook — that beloved baby dragon? And if you want to know how Jorie and Rufus survived their first summer adventures, pick up your copy of Jorie and the Magic Stones.
And The Golden Key
Jorie and the Gold Key’ is a second book of a series that A.H. Richardson wrote of enchantment, adventure and fun. No matter how old your child is they’ll love the continuation of Jorie adventure with Rufus. This book has no barrier of age or gender, wether if you’re a boy or a girl there’s something in this story for you.
This children fantasy tale has a parallel of good and evil. Underneath the tarn to the land of the Wizard Grootmonya in the mythical wonderful land of Cabrynthius. Then to Shyloxia the evil land of Lord Fodomalk who is after poor Jorie again for a magic key. Our young selfless heroes face another daring quest that they face with a young self absorb boy, Nigel who thinks he knows everything and looks down on what he can’t see. Together they enter the tarn and as soon as they are there the story takes a unexpected turn and now they quickly have to find out what the purpose of the key is and rescue Nigel from the evil Fodomalk.
This fantasy book is remarkably outstanding for any gender and all ages. Even though it is written for children there is meaning, a message to be learned. There are some hard words for a young reader but that what makes learning and growing with reading so wonderful, it’s how there mind developed and hunger for more. I also just want to mention how striking and theatrical the cover of the book strikes me, great job. Finally, I highly enjoyed ‘Jorie and the Major Key’, I had a hard time putting the book down knowing the struggles that our young heroine and heroes was up against. I know you’ll enjoy following this epic series as I have and so will you.
