Jason and the Quest for the Ram with the Gold-Colored Fleece
Publisher: TouchPoint Press
The power of friendship, and a little magic, can overcome the most challenging obstacles.
Jason, a ne’er-do-well 12-year-old, is hired to find the prize-winning ram with the gold-colored fleece, which has been stolen a week before the big fair. Accompanied by five of his closest friends, the group sets sail on what will become an epic journey. Or at least a good excuse to skip school. They face many perils along the way, including a giant serpent, strange beings that may or may not be gods of war, and deceitful humans. Once they locate the ram, Jason must perform an impossible task with the help of Melanie, his love interest who is also a witch.
The crew encounter more dangers on the voyage home and realize that getting the ram was the easy part. Someone will pay a terrible price and experience betrayal as they return the ram to its rightful owner.
The quest evolves from a combined will to succeed to a test of the endurance of friendship.
