Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Spring 2011 Kids' Next List
“Choldenko's imagination flies high with this wacky and wonderful novel that pays homage to The Wizard of Oz. After losing their home, Finn and his sisters, India and Mouse, are sent by their mother to stay with Uncle Red in Colorado, but their plane lands in an altogether different world. The siblings are greeted like movie stars and each given their own house. Is it too good to be true? Even if you think you can guess what's going on here, the ending will still astonish you!”
-- Joanne R. Fritz, Chester County Book & Music Company, West Chester, PA


Description

Questions can be tricky things. Everyone has their own way of dealing with them. India Tompkins can charm her way out of answering most of them. Finn Tompkins is too quiet to be asked in the first place. And Mouse Tompkins? She’s a genius—she’s used to having all the answers.

But when they find themselves trapped in Falling Bird—a city seemingly without logic—the Tompkins kids are facing a whole slew of impossible questions, all demanding answers, and not even Mouse knows how to solve these.

How do you find your way home when you aren’t even on the map? What’s the fastest way to wrap your brain around a problem when time itself keeps getting away from you? And if your life at home wasn’t perfect, can you be sure you really want to go back?
