The year is 1750. A lonely boy named Joey stumbles into a parallel world behind his family’s farmhouse, and is elated to find his old friend Ben there. Together they join an expedition to retrieve a “gusher”—a buoyant, glowing sphere that holds an as-yet unthought-of brilliant idea. With a crack team of finders, diggers, seers, and winders, they face bloodthirsty trolls, an insane miner, and unrelenting hardships on their quest.

Nice to see a book for boys! Not too many out there.

And I keep forgetting you are in Oregon! When it gets really humid this summer in N Carolina, I will be thinking about a cool Oregon breeze...

Agreed. So we should embrace the new ones and make them known. Kudos to Shari Lyle-Soffe to for doing so.
