About This Book
Emma, Kate y Michael acaban de descubrir que, después de diez años desaparecidos, sus padres podrían estar vivos. Magnus el Siniestro, la criatura más cruel que hay en la Tierra, los secuestró porque sabían mucho, incluso demasiado, sobre los Libros de los Orígenes. Ahora los hermanos también han descubierto varias cosas sobre estos libros: son tres, confieren un poder extraordinario a quien los posee... y, según una profecía, ellos son los únicos que pueden liberar su magia y protegerla. De hecho, ya tienen uno, el Atlas Esmeralda, pero Magnus quiere ofrecerles un trueque muy tentador: sus padres a cambio del libro. Volverían a ser una familia..., pero saben que él lo quiere para dominar el mundo y sumirlo en las tinieblas. Algo muy peligroso.

  • The Emerald Atlas

    The Emerald Atlas
    Called “A new Narnia for the tween set” by the New York Times and perfect for fans of the His Dark Materials series, The Emerald Atlas brims with humor and action as it charts Kate, Michael, and Emma's extraordinary adventures through an unforgettable, enchanted world.   These three siblings have been in one orphanage after another for the last ten years, passed along like lost baggage.   Yet these unwanted children are more remarkable than they could possibly imagine. Ripped from their parents as babies, they are being protected from a horrible evil of devastating power, an evil they know nothing about.   Until now.   Before long, Kate, Michael, and Emma are on a journey through time to dangerous and secret corners of the world...a journey of allies and enemies, of magic and mayhem.  And—if an ancient prophesy is correct—what they do can change history, and it is up to them to set things right. From the Hardcover edition.

    The Fire Chronicle

    The Fire Chronicle
    After the tumultuous events of last winter, Kate, Michael, and Emma long to continue the hunt for their missing parents. But they themselves are now in great danger, and so the wizard Stanislaus Pym hides the children at the Edgar Allan Poe Home for Hopeless and Incorrigible Orphans. There, he says, they will be safe. How wrong he is.  The children are soon discovered by their enemies, and a frantic chase sends Kate a hundred years into the past, to a perilous, enchanted New York City. Searching for a way back to her brother and sister, she meets a mysterious boy whose fate is intricately—and dangerously—tied to her own. Meanwhile, Michael and Emma have set off to find the second of the Books of Beginning. A series of clues leads them into a hidden world where they must brave harsh polar storms, track down an ancient order of warriors, and confront terrible monsters. Will Michael and Emma find the legendary book of fire—and master its powers—before Kate is lost to them forever?  Exciting, suspenseful, and brimming with humor and heart, the next installment of the bestselling Books of Beginning trilogy will lead Kate, Michael, and Emma closer to their family—and to the magic that could save, or destroy, them all.

    New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature

    New World Orders in Contemporary Children's Literature
    Utopian Transformations
    Children's texts are highly responsive to social change and to global politics, and are implicated in shaping the values of children and young people. New World Orders, now in paperback for the first time, shows how texts for children and young people have responded to the cultural, economic and political movements of the last fifteen years. With a focus on international children's texts produced between 1988 and 2006, the authors discuss how utopian and dystopian tropes are pressed into service to project possible futures to child readers. The book considers what these texts have to say about globalization, neocolonialism, environmental issues, pressures on families and communities, and the idea of the posthuman. This fascinating volume is the first thorough study of how children's books imagine and propose possible worlds and societies.

    The Italian Renaissance

    The Italian Renaissance
    The Origins of Intellectual and Artistic Change...
    In this fascinating study, John Stephens inteprets the significance of the immense cultural change which took place in Italy from the time of Petrarch to the Reformation, and considers its wider contribution to Europe beyond the Alps. His important analysis (which is designed for students and serious general readers of history as well as the specialist) is not a straight narrative history; rather, it is an examination of the humanists, artists and patrons who were the instruments of this change; the contemporary factors that favoured it; and the elements of ancient thought they revived.
