A Perfectly Magnificent Cane
Twelve-year-old Gracie and her twin brother, Gene, have been adopted by the coolest couple ever! Their new parents, Winny and Vince MacPherson, have told them amazing stories about a mysterious family heritage, a three-realm universe called Tresia, and a mystical family heirloom kept especially for them...an old dancing cane.
Their adventures with the cane lead the siblings to a Christmas village, the Tresia Highlands, and through a dangerous passage. An annoying classmate somehow follows them, but is Cally is an enemy or a friend? And what about the giant eagle with the strange eyes and his rider, who show up everywhere they go?
Gracie and Gene must cross the river into the Kingdom Beyond Time to discover where the Scepter of Tresia is hidden. But can they escape Calypso, an evil green spirit who stalks them, especially when she is joined by their parents' old enemies, the Great Dragon Rasha, and Agent Khadol? How can Gracie and Gene claim the victory, master the secret of the cane, and see the mysteries of Tresia revealed before it's too late? Time is running out!
However, none of it matters because in the Dalen family, before the journey can begin, each daughter must discover the gift for herself. And Winny still hasn't found it.
