Professor Pens Middle Grade Fantasy Novel


When 12 year-old Genevieve’s mother goes missing, she begins to search her house for clues to her disappearance. Nothing is unusual until a map drawn by Genevieve and her best friend takes on the feel and appearance of real rock. Genevieve is drawn to it. She swipes her hand across it and the turret ceiling in her bedroom suddenly slides back revealing a dark space. Intrigued she crawls up and see’s...

“... a bracelet. Made of multi-coloured stones – mauve, orange, blue-green, sea-green, midnight blue, rose pink – each stone engraved within it a design in a complimentary shade...”

Could this bracelet, her magical map and, what appears to be, her mother’s glove perched and pointing on top of the squire of the gate, all be clues to her disappearance? Find out in, Time Witch by Jacqueline Corcoran.

This book is exciting and mysterious as Genevieve finds herself on the adventure of her life after she slips into another world. Between her encounters with two youngsters engaged to be married, (a snooty princess and her dashing prince) witches, trolls, flying horses and a world based on “time,” this book will have your middle-graders staying up late reading under the covers with a flashlight. I LOVED it!
