Dr. Illuminatus is a fast-paced story of alchemy and adventure, and sorcery and suspense, in which past and present comfortably coexist. When Tim and Pip's family moves to an old English country estate, they accidentally awaken an alchemist's son, Sebastian, from a centuries-old slumber. But Sebastian's father's enemy, Pierre de Loudeac, has also awakened-and is relentlessly pursuing the dream of alchemists to create an homunculus, an artificial human made from dead material. Aided by Sebastian's wise guidance and insight into six hundred years' history, the two spirited siblings bravely take action to stop the man's ominous quest. But even as they daringly defeat de Loudeac in this battle, Evil lives on.... ``All the magic in Dr. Illuminatus is real,'' the author has noted, ``the chants, the herbs, the potions, and the equipment.'' The irresistible combination of history, humor, and horror will keep young readers on the edge of their seats-and anxious for the next installment.
