About the book

15-year-old author Vivienne Palin’s The Magic Sphere is a warm-hearted fantasy adventure sure to delight ages 8–12. With charming illustrations, this middle-grade chapter book tells the story of a mystery in a magical land that hero Chloe must solve with the help of a surprising group of new friends.

It was just another regular day in nine-year-old Chloe Teem’s town of Terast. Not one thing was out of the ordinary…until the clock struck five past twelve.

In just the blink of an eye, the once bustling town of Terast turned eerily silent. Nobody moved. Nobody talked. Nobody blinked. Everyone was frozen. Except Chloe.
