Mister Monday

The Keys to the Kingdom
Book 1

Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is, in fact, supposed to die an early death. But then he is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock.

Arthur is safe – but his world is not. Along with the key comes a plague brought by bizarre creatures from another realm. A stranger named Mister Monday, his avenging messengers with blood-stained wings, and an army of dog-faced Fetchers will stop at nothing to get the key back – even if it means destroying Arthur and everything around him.

Desperate, Arthur ventures into a mysterious house – a house that only he can see. It is in this house that Arthur must unravel the secrets of the key – and discover his true fate.

“…this novel is a fresh, original start to an exciting new fantasy series.

— Voice of Youth Advocates

“The first in a seven part series for middle graders is every bit as exciting and suspenseful as the author’s previous young adult novels. Readers will eagerly anticipate the sequels.”

— School Library Journal
