 photo SapphireCave_zpse03546df.jpgHello, Paul here with you to kick off the Leap Into Books Givaway Hop, hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Co-hosted by Jinky is Reading.

Today I’m pleased to spotlight author Peter M. Leschner’s children’s book The Sapphire Prism Cave. I love the cover of this book as well as the blurb. I’m a big fan, as you know, of children’s and middle grade books and am quite excited to read and review this book.

Before we learn about The Sapphire Prism Cave, let’s learn a little bit about the author. Here is his biography from Amazon:

Peter M. Leschner has been a practicing real estate and corporate attorney in New York City and New Jersey for over 30 years. He has been a Partner and Of Counsel at several major New York law firms. He is a graduate of Colby College (BA), New England School of Law (JD) and New York University (LLM). Startling Connections was his first novel. The Sapphire Prism Cave (Book 1 of A Journey Through the Space Vortex trilogy) is his second novel. He wrote it for and with his daughter Katherine. Peter lives in Tenafly, New Jersey with his wife and two children.

The Sapphire Prism Cave by Peter M. Leschner takes you on a soaring journey of the heart and imagination. James and Julia, spirited, fun loving 11-year-old twins, stumble upon an incredible cave filled with multi-colored, magic crystals which endow them with special powers that touch and transform their childhood in wonderful ways. Everything changes when James is mysteriously drawn through a hole in the cave’s ceiling and transported through a space vortex to a planet in a distant galaxy. There he uses his newfound powers to surmount challenges he encounters in the enchanted kingdom he discovers. Back home, Julia and her family attempt to unlock the mystery of James’ disappearance. Will James and Julia be reunited after being separated by time and space? Join them on their adventures and find out!

The Sapphire Prism Cave is Book 1 of the A Journey Through The Space Vortex trilogy.

“The reader, too, through Leschner’s vivid and fanciful descriptions, his bold imagination, and his genuine gift of wonderment, experiences a kingdom of truth and beauty, as well as danger and courage.”
Patrice Adcroft, Former Editorial Director, Discover Magazine
