Fiona Ingram

Author Fiona Ingramabout this book: The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper is a rollicking Middle grade adventure through the jungles of Mexico for young and young at heart explorers. It weaves together a lost tribe, crocodiles, fabulous treasures, and ancient and powerful stories from the Maya and Aztec peoples. Intriguing details of grisly customs and religious beliefs add depth to a page-turner of a story. Imagine 'The Da Vinci Code' meets 'The Famous Five' with a dash of 'Harry Potter' thrown in.

This is the third book in The Chronicles of the Stone series which describes the young heroes' urgent quest to locate and protect seven powerful stones from the ancient world. The characters of Adam, Justin, Kim, and James, along with the formidable Aunt Isabel and Gran, are artfully sketched. The sophisticated and clever evil genius Dr Khalid will be familiar to readers of the first two books. The Temple of the Crystal Timekeeper also introduces new friends and enemies, such as the proud and passionate young tribal boy, Tukum, and the powerful and devious Smoking Mirror, who has his own agenda in the story.

Lori Bentley's delightful illustrations add a lot to the book and the endnotes are a rich resource for those who are inspired to find out more. Young readers will learn about the Maya and the Aztecs, the history and mythology of ancient civilizations, and the role of preserving the natural heritage for today's and tomorrow's youngsters.
