Awakening on the damp, cold floor of a black-as-midnight cave, a young man struggles to free his hands that are bound behind him.
Why is he here? As his hands break free, he reaches up to touch his eyes. Is he blind? He fingers a binding that covers his eyes. He hears a voice. Whose voice is it? It is the deep, gentle voice of someone who sounds as if he is entertained by what he has found. He will learn that the voice belongs to a good-natured, wildly creative adventurer from a world in which everything is new and strange.
With the blindfold removed, the young man's bright green eyes can see clearly in the darkness, but he has no memory of who he is, where he came from, or what events caused him to be bound on the floor of a cavern. He has yet to learn of his own incredible powers that must be developed through trial. The adventurer names him Happenstance. So begins an adventure like no other where the unbelievable is common and the destination is extraordinary.
Recommended for grades 4 and up, Happenstance Found will take you on a wild ride to a different world where mystery and adventure are threatened by supernatural forces intent on destroying Happenstance.
