Two girls with very different superpowers join together to save the world from a tiny tyrant in this sequel to The Secret Spiral.
Flor Bernoulli, a fashion maven from Brooklyn, New York, and Lucy Moon, a horse-rustling farm girl from Georgia, are both in possession of magic keys that give them special powers. And they’re going need those powers if they have any hope of saving the universe.
Only four inches tall and made of nothing but squares and rectangles, Square Man is on a mission throughout the universe to destroy anything round or curved. And it’s up to Flor and Lucy to stop him. Helped by Dr. Pi, a pie-baking wizard thousands of years old, and Buddy Moon, Lucy’s father and owner of an ice plant, this fantasy adventure takes the girls on a romp through time and space…and introduces a bit of magical math at the same time.
Gillian Neimark is the author of The Secret Spiral and The Golden Rectangle, and a nom de plume for writer Jill Neimark, who is also the author of the highly acclaimed Bloodsong as well as Why Good Things Happen to Good People.Additionally, she is the coauthor of I Want Your Moo, a picture book that won a Teacher’s Choice Award for Children’s Books.
