Synopsis:
On a car trip through Europe with his father, Hans searches for his mother who left them years ago, At the same time he immerses himself in a fantastic miniature book that only he can read.: the strange whimsical adventures of a sailor on a island where a deck of cards has come to life. A brilliant balancing act between rhyme and reason, reverie and reality, 'The Solitaire Mystery' invites the reader into both worlds, each chapter represented by a different card from the deck. In the end, the journey of Hans Thomas becomes our own, a universal search for meaning and fulfillment that not only enchants, but enriches our hearts and souls.

Review:
"A playful, ingenious, frequently moving...celebration of our persistent search for answers to the ultimate questions."

Kirkus, 05/01/1996

Review:
"Here is an honest-to-goodness dream-making bedtime story for grown-ups, in the proud tradition of 'Alice in Wonderland'....When our author is not crating miniature worlds peopled by the 52 cards in a deck, he proves equally adept at believable if slightly lost real people. Gaarder has an empathetic imagination."

Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 07/21/1996
