Good. You’re curious. You’re brave. If you join this adventure, I will introduce you to some of the events and people in this perilous book. It is an alarming account of two extraordinary adventurers, a missing magician’s diary, a symphony of smells, and a deadly secret. Be careful – our enemies are watching. And tell no one...because the name of this book is secret.
Ok, I warned you. But if you think I’ll give anything away, you’re wrong. I’m not going to remind you of our heroes, Cass and Max-Ernst or their on going fight against the evil Dr. L and Ms. Mauvais, and I certainly wont be telling you about the nefarious Lord Pharoah, or how the kids finally meet the amazing Pietro!
I promise, your taste buds will tingle. Your palate will sing! Oh no, have I accidentally tempted you to read this book? Because in this tooth-rotting adventure, Cass’s mom has been kidnapped by the sinister chocolatier Señor Hugo! Can Cass and Max-Ernest discover the evil ingredient before its too late?
You’re not supposed to know that Cass may be in grave danger after eating the dreaded Time Travel Chocolate. Or that Max-Ernest, our expert hypochondriac, must diagnose Cass’s mysterious condition before it’s too late. For Max-Ernest, it’s a race against time; for Cass, a race through it. For you, well it’s a race to find out what happens.
A class trip to the local natural history museum turns dangerous when Cass accidentally breaks a finger off a priceless mummy. This “crime” of vandalism leads her and her friends Max-Ernest and Yo-Yoji on an expedition into a land of majestic pyramids, dusty tombs, and the walking dead. Is it Egypt? Or somewhere much stranger?
I feared this might happen.
I knew reading was a dangerous
business, but now it's not safe for writers, either!
Pseudonymous Bosch is the anonymous pseudonymous author of the Secret Series. Not much is known about him other than that he has a passionate love of chocolate and cheese and an equally passionate hatred of mayonnaise. Rumors of Boschian sightings are just as frequent and about as reliable as reports of alien abductions. If you ever meet anyone claiming to be Pseudonymous himself he is almost certainly an impostor. The real Pseudonymous is said currently to be hiding in a cave in a remote jungle (although there are contrary reports that he is somewhere in Greenland). Do not visit him at his website.
Gilbert Fold managed to fend off attacks from the evil midnight sun in order to illustrate the books in the Secret series. Laughing in the face of danger, he also does work for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications, and has won many toy awards. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
