Description

The Sound and the Echoes is a high-concept, fantasy adventure for middle
grade and young adult readers, with 27 magical illustrations. Imagine that
everyone around you has a mirror image living somewhere else. Your world is
like a sound, which produced that other world of echoes. And in this land
men are governed by a terrible law-no Echo is allowed to live after his
Sound dies. One Sound especially must die. The Prince's Sound. The Fate
Sealers and Fortune Tellers will make sure of that! Because after this Sound
dies, the Echo Prince will have to die too.
Now, twelve-year-old Will Cleary is about to discover that he is the Sound
the Echoes are hunting. And so begins his perilous adventure into a
see-through, sparkling world, filled with spying crystal balls, an eerie
fortress of castaway children, a hunt for clues in an ancient book of
riddles, and a last-chance escape through a frozen gem-studded lake into a
secret land that holds the key to placing the Prince on the throne and
returning freedom to the Echoes.

About Dew Pellucid

Dew Pellucid first started writing books so he might have something new to read. Indeed, of the million books at the Orphanage of Castaway Children, there isn't one his watery eyes had not perused; this taking place in less than a decade. But now, as this old Echo draws near his one-hundredth birthday, his hunt for a good story is only rivaled by his everlasting quest after Cold Fire Mushrooms. For it was as he scrapped the bottom of his crystal ball mushroom container that Dew Pellucid first heard of Fredrick Fingeldy. Then strange events began to happen in his beloved library. And watching faithfully down every corridor, every garden path, Dew Pellucid witnessed a wonderful story, happening there, right before his eyes (his many Eyes). And, best of all, even he had a part to play in the unfolding tale, which he set down at last in the pages of a book. "I will make you famous!" he promised the Prince's Sound. And so he has.
