The Universes Inside the Lighthouse: Balky Point Adventure #1

Pam Stucky (Author) Jim Tierney (Illustrator)


An ordinary lighthouse on the outside.
A portal to all of space and time on the inside.

"Aliens, infinite universes, ghosts AND time travel ... a winning literary combination if ever there was one." -Just One More Chapter reviews

When Emma notices something unusual in the lighthouse lobby, she has no idea that unraveling this mystery will be just the beginning of an adventure that will take her and her friends to distant planets, throughout time and the multiverse, and to a place where everything is possible.

Together with her twin brother Charlie, an identical Charlie from a parallel Earth, mysterious Eve, enchanting Ben, and unconventional but endearing scientist Dr. Waldo, can Emma chase down Vik, a man under the influence of an entity called The Void, before he destroys all the universes?

Inspired by the timeless wonder and fantasy of A Wrinkle in Time, with just a dash of Doctor Who, Pam Stucky has created a smart and unforgettable story of adventure, curiosity, and the humanity of all beings-even aliens.

Exciting and imaginative, courageous and thought-provoking, this novel commends the strength of compassion, and the inherent power within each person to change the world ... or the universe.

"Reminded me of Christopher Pike's wonderful series Spooksville (one of my all time favourites growing up) .... The plot was full of twists and turns ... it was suspenseful and exciting, a perfect children's adventure story and a compelling read. I would recommend this to anyone with teenagers that enjoy adventure stories of any kind, and I can't wait for the second in the series." -Alison, Chapter One Reviews

"I never grew tired of seeing what [the author] might come up with next.... What would it be like to visit other planets? As someone who has often wondered about this, I was intrigued by all of the places that these characters see. Earth is unique in many different ways. It was nice to see this subtly acknowledged before the author went on to show the amazing range of possibilities. I would have liked to visit (almost) all of them." -Astilbe, Long and Short Reviews"

"I recommend this book to fans of Doctor Who, and anyone who loves to read Sci-Fi novels." -Rachel, Rachel's Really Random Reviews
