Matterhorn the Brave Series #1: The Sword and the Flute

AMG Publishers / 2007 / Paperback

Stock No: WW78334


Product Description

Matthew Horn (a.k.a. Matterhorn) is a brave knight--when he isn't busy being a typical twelve-year-old boy. Few people have heard of him, which isn't surprising, for most of his adventures happen in other times and places. And like all who know how to travel, he can do so without drawing attention to himself.

Matt's adventures begin one afternoon while browsing through some musty books in an obscure, neglected corner of his middle school library. One book titled Ian's Flute literally demands his attention. Surprisingly, the book contains a nondescript title page followed by one blank page after another. While quizzically leafing through the blank pages, Matt unearths a portal into time travel and is suddenly introduced to a series of wild adventures filled with danger, mystery, and intrigue. As a result, Matterhorn and his friends travel around the globe and off it. Their adventures take them under the Earth and over the moon. Not bad for kids who don't even have driver's licenses! Read The Sword and the Flute and join Matterhorn the Brave in his early voyages that transcend space and time. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.

Publisher's Description

Mike Hamel's Matterhorn, the Brave

Adventure, Danger, and Inspiration

Matthew Horn (a.k.a. Matterhorn) is a brave knight-when he isn't busy being a typical twelve-year-old boy. Few people have heard of him, which isn't surprising, for most of his adventures happen in other times and places. And like all who know how to travel, he can do so without drawing attention to himself.

Matt's adventures begin one afternoon while browsing through some musty books in an obscure, neglected corner of his middle school library. One book literally demands his attention. Surprisingly, the book contains a nondescript title page followed by one blank page after another. While quizzically leafing through the blank pages, Matt discovers a portal into time travel and is suddenly introduced to a series of wild adventures filled with danger, mystery, and intrigue. As a result, Matterhorn and his friends (Aaron the Baron and others) travel around the globe and off it. Their adventures take them under the Earth and over the moon. Not bad for kids who don't even have driver's licenses.

The Sword and the Flute is volume 1 in the new Matterhorn the Brave series.

The Sword and the Flute is a fun adventure—the kind of book that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The first book in the Matterhorn the Brave series, The Sword and the Flute features a middle school kid who likes to read history. One day while searching the library shelves, Matt finds a book titled The Sword and the Flute. Daunted by the number of pages, he decides not to read it. But when he tries to put it back in its slot on the shelf, it won’t go in. Intrigued, he opens the book. Inside are only blank pages except for a curious black dot found on a middle page. Staring at the black dot, Matterhorn is sucked into another world.
Matterhorn’s quest includes a jeweled queen, a fun sidekick, a mysterious stranger, and a deceiving enemy. Is Matterhorn the promised chosen one who can save the forest and this strange world?
Author Mike Hamel wrote this fantasy for youth. Tales of Matterhorn the Brave were originally bedtime stories Hamel told to his four children. Edited by innovative editors Dan Penwell and Rick Steele, The Sword and the Flute is a good choice for boys and reluctant readers like myself who prefer stories with lots of action. – Hannah Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
