Overview

“I can hardly wait for their next page-turning adventure” Christopher Paolini

Tyler and Lucinda have been invited for another summer at mysterious, wonderful, scary Ordinary Farm, but this year something sinister is going on with their great-uncle Gideon and his unique animals, the dragons, unicorns, and sea-serpents he has rescued out of the time-rift called the Fault Line. The farm is under threat from Gideon’s billionaire rival Ed Stillman, and Gideon’s security measures include dangerous new creatures like bunyips and manticores.

But all the security in the world can’t protect Lucinda, Tyler, and the farm from dangers closer to home, like the witch Mrs. Needle and her son Colin, who want Ordinary Farm for themselves. The children do everything they can to keep the farm and its fabulous beasts safe, but when Uncle Gideon vanishes things quickly get worse – much worse.

Everything is going wrong. The farm is breaking down around them and the people who live there -- each one a stranded traveler from the past -- are terrified. The stakes have never been higher. Can Tyler and Lucinda find a way to save Ordinary Farm?

Master storytellers Tad Williams and Deborah Beale create a white-knuckle tale for their second book of adventures at Ordinary Farm.

Rick Kleffel
California Magic

Forget the gold. Take a drive down Pacific Coast Highway, and what you'll sense behind those hills is magic.

Deborah Beale and Tad Williams seem to have my number because 'The Dragons of Ordinary Farm' (HarperCollins ; June 2, 2009 ; $16.99) and the sequel 'The Secrets of Ordinary Farm' (The Beale-Williams Enterprise ; August 18, 2011 ; $9.99) transpire in precisely the sort of places I imagine just beyond the hillsides I can see. These are very real places,

    Ordinary is Anything But!

    What can I say? I finished the first book in two days. This one just took me one, even with my family visiting from Alabama. Every spare chance I got I was reading. This one's even better than the first one! I'm sure there's a third one coming, and I can barely wait!
