The series will explore the Society of Explorers and Adventurers lore behind beloved Disney Parks characters, attractions, interconnected stories and more across Disney theme parks, resorts and cruise ships.
Here is the official description of the book:
Shinji Takahashi is just an ordinary kid. An ordinary homeschooled smart-alecky orphan kid being raised by his globe-trotting aunt Yui. But when a magical guardian decides to use him as a conduit to awaken its power, Shinji’s life takes a turn for the anything-but-ordinary. Captured by the menacing Hightower Corporation, which is bent on using the guardian’s magic for its own nefarious purposes, Shinji must team up with a brilliant young tech whiz named Lucy and her robot mouse, Tinker, in order to escape.
Together the two turn to the venerable Society of Explorers and Adventurers and its ragtag cast of spelunkers, hackers, mapmakers, pilots, and mythology experts (among other things) to return the guardian to its rightful home and release Shinji from its magic―which seems to be draining his life force. Time is ticking, the Hightower Corporation is hot on their tail, and success or failure might depend on one small thing―Shinji finally coming around to the belief that he is anything but ordinary.
This new story sounds like it will take readers on the adventure of a lifetime and all 320 pages is sure to keep young readers completely immersed and captivated. The countdown to this amazing books release is officially on and we can’t wait to see this amazing author’s new book hit shelves next spring!
