The Saint in the Cellar
by Laura Vosika and Chris R. Powell
Once upon a time, a boy named Jacob lived in a world of knights and dragons—when he wasn’t going to first grade, learning manners and waltzes, and eating steak tartare.
While his parents’ careers keep them occupied, he befriends the large and rambunctious family next door and explores his new home—the mansion of a 19th century railroad baron. He discovers a man living in the walls in his basement. Anthony says he is a monk living in the medieval anchorite tradition, sealed in a cell for life to pray.
Mama does not like his friendship with the kids next door. And she doesn’t believe there’s a saint in the cellar. But then, she doesn’t believe in dragons or Methred, either.
What if she’s wrong….?
