This adventure story of two - then three - young people answers questions about beings who help when you least expect it and who sometimes need your help, too...

Ride along in a magical boat provided by the powers of the earth. Join youngsters like you who help to solve the problems made by other human beings, problems like polluting things without cleaning up after themselves.

Join three friends in a fast-moving, sometimes dangerous tale of cooperation between the powers of the earth and the powers in young hearts. Solutions are possible with open-minded listening, careful planning and undaunted courage.


'Like C.S. Lewis, Müller offers effective characterizations... and an exciting plot that's ballasted by moral seriousness. The quest's puzzles and challenges are original and involving, and the ending is genuinely moving... A delightful, compelling fantasy adventure, sure to win fans.'
-- Kirkus Reviews

'A romp! Eric Müller delivers a fast-paced adventure that leads us through the mysterious realms of the elemental world. We meet characters who face danger with courage, fortitude and decisiveness. Young readers will have much to contemplate long after they have finished the last page.'
– Pamela Dalton, award-winning children’s books illustrator

'An amazing adventure that will delight any reader! A profound wisdom in its pages reminiscent of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works, this is a wonderful chapter book to read aloud to a child and for older children to enjoy on their own.'
– Margaret Gorman, Waldorf adult and high school educator and mentor


Eric G. Müller teaches high school literature and drama at the Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School in New York, and he is director of Teacher Education at the Alkion Center there. He has published two novels and a collection of poetry.
