Description

Who would want to have tea with mushrooms, when it's a hundred degrees and humid out? As Shelby and Shauna Kitt find out, quite a few people. These are, of course, people from Miriax, a planet in a different dimension where nothing and no one is anything like what the thirteen year-old brother and sister twins expect. On Miriax, lilac tea is served with explosive mushrooms, agitex leaves cure motion sickness, stick insects patrol the jungle, and library books carefully choose their readers, refusing to leave the shelf for anyone else. And, if you're not careful, the walls spit on you.

Shelby and Shauna's lives change drastically when planet Miriax recruits them to seal a dimensional hole that allows Klodians - nasty aliens - to travel to Earth. In order to succeed in their mission, Shelby and Shauna discover skills they never thought they possessed, make friends they never expected to have, and face enemies they never imagined existed.

Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes won "Best First Chapter Book" in the 2012 Children's Literary Classics Awards, together with a gold award in the "fantasy pre-teen" and "science-fiction pre-teen" categories. The novel was also an award-winning finalist in the young adult and science-fiction categories of the 2012 International Book Awards.

"I do not read a large amount of science fiction, but Shelby and Shauna Kitt and the Dimensional Holes may change that for me.  The characters are realistic and engaging.  The setting is magical--I want to take a trip to Miriax.  The story drew me in and kept me guessing until the last page." -- The Book Addict

"I read the book on my Kindle on my trip to Europe. It was such a good read! I had a hard time putting it down, some nights, by 2:30 am I had to force myself to close it and go to sleep!" - amazon.com
