JoJo, Trip and Marcy - three 12-year olds from Ferry Village, Maine - embark on a journey to Camelot in an effort to locate a magical Marble known as the Chrimeus. The Marble must be delivered to the dark witches who now rule over a devastated and murky Camelot, in exchange for the release of JoJo's father, who apparently hid this part of his life from his family. Trip and Marcy are JoJo's best friends, but could not be more different from one another, adding friction to an already impossible quest.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your readers with this design?
1. Magic. The Chrimeus is a magical Marble, but there are other magical beings in the story as well. Some good, some evil. 2. Mystery. The "Puzzle" in the title hints at the need for the heroes to constantly figure things out. 3. Adventure. The story is a non-stop rollercoaster ride with a good, steady tempo.
