Summary

A delightfully adventurous debut from 14-year-old author, Raeann Gillberg
 
Peter and his family are visiting Petra, a very old structure carved out of a cliff in Jordan and one of the seven wonders of the world. But for Peter this is anything besides a normal family vacation. From Peter’s strange dreams to Lilly’s crazy theories, nothing seems to make sense. Will Peter look past what he thinks he knows and find something inside himself he didn’t know was there? Will he unravel the mystery of the Ageless Gem, or is it nothing more than an ageless bedtime story?

    A rock is a rock, part of cliff, road or sea. But now can you guess what else it can be? 
    A rock can be a…dinosaur bone, stepping-stone, hopscotch marker, fire sparker. Find out about the many roles a rock can play in this poetic exploration of rocks around the world. 
    Laura Purdie Salas's lyrical, rhyming text and Violeta Dabija's glowing illustrations make simple yet profound observations about seemingly ordinary objects and encourage readers to suggest "what else it can be!" Using metaphors for a leaf (tree topper / rain stopper), a rock (hopscotch marker / fire sparker), and water (thirst quencher / kid drencher), these insightful picture books creatively highlight a variety of roles and relationships in nature.

    Dear Diary..."Magic is a mystery that doesn't need solving." That's what illusionist Drake Lonestar told me when I saw him perform. I was skeptical that the famous magician could really make the River Heights courthouse disappear, but I was wrong. It turns out that the courthouse wasn't the only thing that vanished. So did important evidence relating to a jewel heist - and all signs point to Lonestar as the thief! Now the magician himself has disappeared into thin air - and all of River Heights is looking at me to track him down. I just hope I can do it soon, because I have a feeling Lonestar has one last trick up his sleeve....
