About this title

Synopsis:

Combine one magic timedoor, an evil sorcerer and a kidnapped princess-and that's a recipe for adventure. Add some goblins and trolls, two daring rescues and a magician and his king-and you've cooked up an adventure of a lifetime!

Christopher Jordan and his sister Molly get to live this adventure after they discover King Rupert of Endora and his magician Artemas hiding out in an old barn near their house. They are temporarily trapped in this world and must return home so the king can rescue his daughter, Princess Rosalind, who was kidnapped by the invading forces of the evil sorcerer Malaban, whose whereabouts remain a mystery.

Though suspecting King Rupert isn't being entirely honest with them, the children still assist him to determine when the timedoor will reopen. But after King Rupert and Artemas give them the slip and return to Endora in secret, Christopher and Molly are faced with a most difficult choice-either allow the timedoor to close or pursue King Rupert all the way to Endora and finally get to the bottom of his story. They decide to follow-and their lives will never be the same!

About the Author:

Thomas J. Prestopnik (pronounced press-TOP-nick) is the author of The Question Lies on Varick Street, a really fast read, and the second book in the 22-Minute Novel series. The first is titled Missing Tweets no. 4. He also wrote Prisoner of the Giant Boona Bird, the second of twelve planned stories in the Griffin Ghostley adventure series for 10 to 13 year old readers. Book #1 is Search for the Silver Swamp Monster.
 
In 2015, Prestopnik published Nicholas Raven and the Wizards' Web, a 120 chapter epic fantasy for adults and older teens. He began planning and outlining this Lord of the Ringsinspired novel in 1978 when he was fifteen, three years after first reading J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved classic, and wrote the first draft between 1999 and 2013.
 
His other works include The Endora Trilogy, a fantasy-adventure series for pre-teens and adults comprised of The Timedoor (Book 1), The Sword and the Crown (Book 2) and The Saving Light (Book 3). The first book had originally been published as The Visitors in Mrs. Halloway's Barn before the story was expanded into a trilogy and retitled The Timedoor.
 
Prestopnik has also penned the children's adventure Gabriel's Journey, a stand-alone novel enjoyed by both young and old alike, as well as the novella A Christmas Castle which is geared for adults and older teens. For more information, visit Prestopnik's Amazon author page or go to TomPresto.com.
