the Adventures of Phippen Abercrombie
Book I: the Dragon Egg Curse
Mr. Craig R Milton
Phippen Abercrombie is a collector of adventures and he keeps his collection in sealed jars in his pantry. The timeless and mysterious Professor Abercrombie stores countless jars in his enchanted pantry each containing the unique past, present or future adventure of thousands of children.
Fourteen year old Cameron Tate is preparing to make the most of the last couple days of summer holidays before returning to school. A bookish, imaginative, loner, Cameron is dreading returning to school where he struggles to fit in. When he reluctantly goes on an errand for his mother he is surprised to find himself following a talking weasel through the woods near his home to a mysterious mansion.
The mansion's sole human inhabitant, Professor Phippen Abercrombie, presents Cameron with the opportunity to enter the pantry and seek out the jar with a label bearing his name and age, containing his adventure. Cameron retrieves his jar and twists the top off releasing a magical journey beyond anything he could ever have dreamed.
In an instant he is transported to the cursed kingdom of Krotan. Accompanied by three young farmers, the King, his brave knight Brogan and the knight's warrior daughter Phaelan, Cameron must confront the evil witch Dagma and the vengeful dragon Tiarnach. If Cameron is to defeat the Witch, save the Princess, and bring to an end the curse that has plagued Krotan, he must trust in his new friends and find the courage in himself to stand up for what he believes is right.
Filled with monsters, magic, acts of great heroism and sacrifice; The Dragon Egg Curse is a fantasy adventure for the young and the young at heart.
