Children's Ebooks: Time Talisman Series
A series of children's ebooks published by our children's books imprint, Autumn Wonders, is now available for purchase and download at ilovebooks.com, the new ebookstore by MediaCorp.
Written by talented mulit-talented Singaporean writer Don Bosco, the Time Talisman series is for readers aged 8 to 14. It takes young readers into an alternative history of Singapore, to explore a magical colonial city where alchemists struggle for power and young kids lead the battle against evil.
It all starts in present-day Singapore, when young Justin Low and his good friends Emily Anson and Roz Hamid come across a mysterious talisman. Time and again, against their wishes, the kids are transported back to Singapore's wild colonial past. They have their hands full as they battle a whole gallery of dangerous villains, including ambitious alchemists, ruthless sorcerers and power-hungry conspiracy groups. Even in the most unlikely places, they manage to find helpful allies, from righteous warriors and eccentric mystics to creative artists who are willing to risk their lives to protect their communities from the forces of evil.
There are currently two books in the series - The Secret of Monk's Hill and Newton's Curse - with more on the way.
Don maintains a very cool and helpful (for both budding young writers and parents) website called SuperCoolBooks. Check it out for more information about the series, his other works and innovative downloadable content.
The Time Talisman series is also available on Kindle, iTunes, Kobo and other ebookstores.
