The adventure continues! With the end of the school year just a few weeks away, Sam Middleton is looking forward to a peaceful summer - until he receives a letter telling him that Jolly Goodfellow and his young nephew Edgar have disappeared. In this second installment to The Goodfellow Chronicles, readers join Sam and an expanding cast of Sage (a race of creatures who provide unseen inspiration to gifted humans) as they continue to explore the mysteries of an ancient and legendary scroll. When Sam realizes that his friends' disappearance has something to do with the scroll and that the scroll itself is linked to England's mysterious crop circles, he foregoes his plans for a quiet vacation and dedicates his summer to searching for Jolly and Edgar. But he isn't alone ... The evil Professor Mandrake is searching, too, and he has his own scroll to guide him. As the search for the missing Goodfellows ranges from England to the United States, and Sam and Mandrake battle for possession of the scrolls, we discover the origin of these special relics, as well as their importance to the history - and the future - of humankind. The Goodfellow Chronicles is a story of friendship, courage, sacrifice and loyalty. With an extensive cast of engaging and multi-dimensional characters, the Goodfellow Chronicles delivers a plot full of twists, turns and surprises, against a backdrop of the eternal battle between good and evil. The Goodfellow Chronicles was shortlisted for the Ontario Library Association's Red Maple Award, chosen as one of the Best Books for Fall by CBC Radio, awarded a Children's Choice Pick by the Winnipeg Free Press, chosen one of the year's Top Books by The Canadian Toy Testing Council, and given 2 Our Choice Awards by The Canadian Children's Book Centre. In a 2007 article Where to turn when Harry retires, The Globe and Mail (Canada's National Newspaper) included the Goodfellow Chronicles in a list of fantasy series for children to read after they had finished the final book in the Harry Potter series.
