    Children of the Red King #4: Charlie Bone and the Castle of Mirrors

    This long-awaited sequel to The New York Times and Book Sense bestseller, Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy, is the fourth installment in the Children of the Red King Quintet. The previous three titles have been published to critical acclaim and the series continues to reach an ever-wider readership.

    Back in Bloor's Academy, Charlie's power takes on a new dimension. He meets a new gallery of characters, including Mr. Pilgrim's replacement, Tantalus Ebony, and the mysterious new student Joshua Tilpin, who appears to be magnetic. But not all is well. Billy has been adopted by the O'Gres, a child-hating couple, who carry with them a gray bag of oaths wherever they go, seducing Billy to sign an oath of obedience, before locking him up behind a force field in an odd place called The Passing House. Olivia has no shortage of mysteries, either. Upset and confused, she peels an apple to find that the peel never ends. All of these mysteries come together as Charlie and his friends solve the mystery of the Castle of Mirrors.

About This Book

In January, 1916, Henry Yewbeam picks up a mysterious glowing glass ball that comes rolling towards him while he is playing marbles. The ball is, in truth, a time twister that his nasty cousin Zeke has made sure Henry will find. The unsuspecting Henry gazes into the time twister and is transported far into the future where he meets Charlie Bone, his great nephew and reluctant student at Bloor's Academy where Henry's now ancient, but still nasty cousin, Ezekiel, lives. Charlie has to hide Henry from Ezekiel and from all the other members of the extended and malevolent Yewbeam and Bloor families while he figures out a way to send Henry back to 1916.
