No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Adam?s sister is a singing sensation and he is her biggest fan. Unlike his superstar sibling, this twelveyear- old boy excels at absolutely nothing?although his sister would argue that he?s the master of getting on her nerves. But when a mysterious creature as old as time steals her talent, it?s Adam who fearlessly leads the charge to retrieve it and stop the creature before it can take the talents of other children.

Brimming with colorful characters and dastardly villains, and recalling the best of Roald Dahl, Alex Williams presents a humorous adventure about where talent truly lies.
