There is a place between now and then, and a space between here and there.

In that place the tale is told, and in that space a child suspends reliance on what is believed to be real.

The first book, The Gift of the Puzzle Box, takes place near the end of World War II. It tells the tale of a boy caught up on the edge of wondering what he’s made of. He longs to be useful, to be the man about the place, but nobody gives him a chance. Nobody, that is, until he runs away from home and finds himself caught up in a quest.

Here’s more about The Gift of the Puzzle Box story.
