I felt it was a book that borrowed generously from every source imaginable and brought in nothing new. At one point, I swore I was reading Narnia: a more vicious, less pious one, but still, it was Narnia.

And ultimately, Time Traveling. There are very few ways to do this well. Mostly, its a gimmick authors use when they get their characters into impossible situations where they _will_ fail. Then, time travel. Just kidding. Everything's all right. Nearly as bad a betrayal as "it was all a dream". ( )

I found this book while wandering through Barnes and Noble and was enchanted by the cover (because green is my favorite color). Then, I saw where the audiobook was narrated by Jim Dale and knew I had to listen to the audiobook. I love Jim Dale and have listened to every book narrated by him.


I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. It's the story of Kate, Emma and Michael. Three orphaned children who are constantly being moved from orphanage to orphanage. Ten years after being abandoned, they end up being the only children at an orphange in Cambridge Falls. While exploring the orphanage, they come across a green book which they later learn is called The Emerald Atlas. The Atlas allows the children to travel back in time where they end up where their adventures begin.


I loved this story. It was fun and engaging, full of magic and reminescent of so many great fantasy series (such as Narnia, Harry Potter and The Golden Compass). Jim Dale, as always, was brillant. I loved his work so much that I didn't even mind that the obviously three American orphans spoke with a British accent.


This book left me wanting for more and I highly recommend it (although you might want to wait until closer for the second book to be released).

Three kids live in a series of unsavory orphanages after their parents leave them until they are sent to a strange, empty orphanage in Cambridge Falls. Upon exploring the house, they find an old blank book that transports them backwards in time and they find out about a much-desired treasure being sought by a beautiful, but evil, witch. They launch upon an adventure that jumps back and forth in time.

For such a long book, I didn't feel much emotion of any of the kids. The settings are described in detail but the plot is difficult to follow with the changes in time. In this first book, we also don't learn much about Dr. Pym, the "Dumbledore" of this story. He doesn't appear to show any affection for the kids and is only interested in their usefulness to finding and protecting the lost books. The magical beings in the book form more of a connection with the children than their human guardian. They type of middle-school reader who enjoys a detailed story of adventure might be attracted to this series. Definitely not a choice for reluctant readers. ( )

This is a story about 3 siblings that have grown up in many orphanages. They end up in an orphanage where they stumble upon a book that can transport them in time using photographs. In the story, each sibling must use their strengths to overcome the evil Countess, who is trying to find more of the books to become more powerful and give to her leader. The children discover magic and they learn to work together. This is one of others in the series that will continue with the same characters, as they try to find their parents.
