One of the great classic novels springs to life and takes three unsuspecting youngsters on a wild thrill ride in L.L. Samson’s FACING THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME. The first book in The Enchanted Attic series, FACING THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME is a completely original take on the beloved Victor Hugo story written in 1831. While fourteen-year-old bookworm Ophelia is reading the classic tale one night in the secret attic, the book’s giant-size hero, Quasimodo, appears before her, in the flesh. Shocked and excited by the presence of this imposing figure, Ophelia recruits Linus, her twin brother, and their new friend Walter to help get Quasimodo back to his home in 15th century Paris the same way he got there—through the enchanted circle on the attic floor. They have 60 hours to accomplish their mission, or Quasimodo will suffer a horrific fate! Adding to their predicament – they must get past Quasimodo’s shady caretaker, Deacon Frollo, and mad scientist, Cato Grubbs, who both have plans of their own for Quasi. Will he make it safely home before it’s too late? Packed with adventure, The Enchanted Attic is the perfect series to introduce adolescents to classic literature. L.L. Samson (who fans know as “Lisa Samson”) weaves engrossing tales that readers will find hard to put down. Parents and teachers will delight in the way children latch on to this and the upcoming spins on classic tales, like Moby Dick and The Three Musketeers.
