The Keepers of the StonePenny
On his eleventh birthday, Tray Whitfield is enjoying a meadow walk with his grandmother when they discover an unusual egg-shaped stone and a shiny copper penny with the current year stamped on it. When he puts the stone and the penny together in his pocket, Tray is suddenly transported back in time to an unfamiliar world. Where on earth did he go, how did he get there, and why does the penny now say that the year is 1957?
In StonePenny: The Keepers of the StonePenny —the first book of the StonePenny trilogy—Tray enlists the help of his best friends, Jen and Mack, to find out how he ended up on a lane that looks like an enchanted tree tunnel. What—and who—are at the end of the trail? Not even Tray and his active imagination can anticipate what happens next! Follow along on a fantastic adventure back in time and space that’s filled with friends, family, magic, and a whole lot of fun.
