ATHERTON, THE HOUSE OF POWER
by Patrick Carman
2008 Kids' Wings Award
2008 Junior Library Guild Selection
2008 Texas Bluebonnet ListSM

A unique new world was being created. The plan was in place. Development had begun. Each detail was in the hands of a genius scientist. Carefully chosen population. No pollution. No regrets. No unnecessary drain on natural resources. Atherton was being launched. Everything was perfect...until...it was too late... because...it was realized that the scientist whose genius had created the perfect new world was, in fact, mad.

You can go along to witness the transformation of Atherton through the eyes of Edgar, a young orphan who works in Atherton's fig groves, a youngster driven by a memory of the promise of a Book of Secrets. Find a quiet corner in a rock wall. Snuggle up with a bottle of water that can't be opened. Open your book and become transformed into one who lives and works in a new world unlike any you've ever imagined. Perhaps, like Edgar and his friend, Isabel, you, too, will become one whose courage helps transform the evil around you into good.

This is one of the Kids' Wings' all-time favorites and best activity unit with Jeopardy-type game and recorded song included!
