It was Paul's ninth birthday, summer vacation was just around the corner, and the anticipation of swimming in a brand new pool was overwhelming. The excitement of watching the construction made him daydream of how much fun he would soon have. As Paul enjoyed gazing at the deep hole, while his imagination exploded, so did his curiosity when he noticed a box-like structure sticking out of the dirt. Paul's Aunt Vicky paid for the new pool, but did she know about the secret treasure? What was inside the box that Paul found, and was his discovery a secret? Why was Henry's tone threatening when he demanded Paul to give him the box? Why was Henry dressed in rags, desperately searching for food, and did he live in the woods? What did Henry know about the ring that Paul didn't know, and why did Henry miss his family? I highly recommend 'Secrets of the Magic Ring' to children, ages six to eleven, who enjoy fun-filled stories from beginning to end. Karen McQuestion created a mystical-magical adventure as the characters come to life in this vibrant, mysterious tale. What did Vicky wish for, and did her wish come true? Where did Paul's mother find the ring, and how did Vicky lose it? What did Grammy know about the ring, why did Henry spy on Paul's house, and who did Clem talk to? Did Mira know about the history of the ring, and did she tell Jasmine? Will Jasmine break the rules to help Henry? Can the gold ring with a sparkling blue gem, taken from a box that looked like a pirate's chest, lead to big trouble? Who was the ring a perfect fit for? Will happiness turn into misery, after many wishes are granted?
