Overview

When Aunt Adelaide sends thirteen-year-old cousins Ivan and Daphne on a treasure hunt in the rain, they never expect to stumble into a whole new world – an enchanting land where words and numbers run wild. They are surprised again when the first people they meet beg them to find Lexicon’s missing children, who have wandered off, bewitched by lights in the sky.

Trekking between villages in search of clues, the cousins encounter a plague of punctuation, a curious creature, a fog of forgetting, the Mistress of Metaphor, a panel of poets, and the illogical mathematicians of Irrationality. But when a careless Mathemystical reflects them across the border into the ominous Land of Night, their peril deepens.

Kidnapped, imprisoned, and mesmerized--with time running out--will Daphne and Ivan find a way to solve the mystery of lights in the sky and restore the lost children of Lexicon to their homes?

Meet the Author

Pendred Noyce is a doctor and educator. She loves to ski, read, hike, do logic puzzles, and travel. She hasn’t been to Australia or Antarctica yet. She has five children but no pets, and she lives near Boston, Massachusetts with the parts of her family that haven’t already grown up.

Joan Charles is an artist, writer, and illustrator in Santa Monica, California. She grew up in a house very much like Aunt Adelaide's - filled with books, games, and imagination. As a child she put on plays and puppet shows, wrote and illustrated a family newspaper, and played endless games of Parcheesi with her sisters on rainy summer days. Her favorite thing to do was draw and make up stories, and that's still true today.

    must-have for any middle-schooler!!

    This book is a riveting read! It immediately draws you in when the main characters, 2 cousins, stumble into a magical land. The book takes you along for the adventure as Ivan and Daphne attempt solve mathematical and literary puzzles that get them one step closer to uncovering the big mystery. This book is one of the most creative and clever childrens books that I have read in a long time. It brought me back to the games that I used to play in my childhood, and I can't wait to see what comes next from the author.

    Don't let the 'for 9 to 12 year old reader' fool you!

    Don't let kids be the only ones to enjoy this book. I picked it up and practically read it in one sitting. It is quick paced with a wonderful wit and word challenges and math puzzles to keep your mind spinning. The story is alive with great characters that are brought to life by the beautiful illustrations throughout the entire book. I highly recommend this book for families to read. Great fun and all kinds of material for dinner conversations.

    For the young and the young at heart, it's all abut the journey to the Land of Lexicon! Great fun filled adventure for all ages!

    Thirteen year old cousins Ivan and Daphne thought it was going to be a boring summer at Aunt Adelaide's. Wrong!! Lost in Lexicon: An Adventure in Words and Numbers tells their tale and what a great fantasy adventure it is. Author Pendred Noyce targets readers 9 to 12 years old with this book but don't let that fool you - 70 year old adults and 7 year old children all love it. It is fun, humorous, and full of adventure and intrigue with one colorful character after another. One of my particular favorites is the Mistress of Metaphor and her pot of metaphor stew - reminds me of a woman I work with - snappy, colorful and always willing to trade quips with you. Don't stop there ...head to the website for an amazing and fun journey through the Land of Lexicon! I find this to be a great gift idea!

    For adventure loving fantasy book readers

    What a great read if you love intrigue, mystery, action, adventure, fantasy and fun. Cousins Ivan and Daphne have all of that and more in their summer adventure at Aunt Adelaide's farm. The author weaves words and number challenges throughout as Daphne and Ivan puzzle their way through looking for the lost children. This is a wonderful book for 9 to 12 year old readers....as well as their families. Lots of materials for dinner time discussions.
