Something extraordinary is about to happen to Charlotte Mielswetzski, a decidedly ordinary girl…and it has everything to do with Greek mythology and her creepy English teacher, Mr. Metos. Peculiar, yellow- eyed men in tuxedoes have begun to follow her everywhere. And the sudden arrival from London of her cousin Zee, who believes he is the cause of a mysterious sickness affecting his friends in Britain, serves to thicken the plot. Can these odd strangers in tuxedoes really be stealing people’s shadows and taking them to the Underworld through an obscure door at the shopping mall? The cousins must get down to into Hades and across the River Styx to get to the bottom of this …they must save the world from THE SHADOW THIEVES   (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2008-2009)
