Description

LOST IN A MAZE OF MYSTERY . . . Everyone knows that the creatures of the outside world are forbidden by magic to enter the land of Een. That’s why Kendra Kandlestar is so surprised when a giant Unger arrives in the middle of the night to deliver a cryptic message: If she can find the Door to Unger, she will be able to unlock the truth about her long-lost family. But when Kendra finds herself trekking through the wilderness with a magic-peddling faun and a rebellious Unger, she begins to wonder if it’s all just a clever trap to lead her into the heart of danger. Whom can Kendra trust? There’s only one way to find out: peek through the Door to Unger and enter a world of magic, monsters, and mystery!



About the Author

Growing up on a farm, Lee Edward Fodi was subjected to various horrible chores such as cleaning up after chickens, pigs, geese, and younger siblings. There was a time when his father harbored hopes that his son would take over the family business--but these aspirations came to an abrupt end when the young author accidentally ran the tractor over his dad's outhouse (thankfully, his dad was not inside at the time). As a result, Fodi went on to pursue his love of art, mythology, and storytelling, all of which (luckily) do not require any skill in operating heavy machinery. He is the author and illustrator of "The Chronicles of Kendra Kandlestar" and has also illustrated several picture books, including "I'll Follow the Moon" and "The Chocolatier's Apprentice," a Canadian national bestseller. When he is not writing and illustrating, Fodi spends his time teaching kids how to daydream through his fun-filled creative writing workshops. He enjoys travelling, and especially exploring castles, mazes, tombs, and temples--not to mention tiny places hidden between the cracks of here and there.
