Product Details


“Sedita, Seraydarian, and Hamaker’s series debut zips along nicely, mixing cryptic teases with affable characters. The hints of magic in the snappy illustrations add another layer of allure. Featuring flashes of time slips and a racially diverse cast, this graphic novel hits all the right spots for the inevitable sequel.Like the pathfinders, readers will be crying, “Plus Ultra!” and hoping for the next adventure.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“A promising new mystery series….[The] suspenseful adventures provide the foundation for many unexpected twists and will keep readers turning the pages.”
School Library Connection

“Sedita and Seraydarian bring much enthusiasm to the project, and the historical basis of Merriweather’s story, the real-life Henry Mercer and Mercer Museum of Doylestown, Pa., is certain to intrigue. Eisner Award–winning colorist Hamaker contributes antic scenes of the campers and richly depicts historic maps and [settings].”
Publishers Weekly

“The narrative is simple and likely to appeal to reluctant readers, and the engaging, vibrant illustrations help move the plot along. Readers will relate to the characters and be drawn into the narrative. This first book in an adventure-filled mystery graphic novel series will garner fans. Tweens will have fun with this quick read whose open ending will leave readers wanting to know more.”
School Library Journal

“Indiana Jones–style clever, and the thematic joy of searching is hard to resist. Characters’ personalities are easily accessible and each is visualized in clean, elegant strokes, while the backgrounds are lavishly detailed, most appropriate for a story about discovering secrets in strange places.”
