ELIZABETH HAYDON is the author of the bestselling Symphony of Ages fantasy series, which began with Rhapsody. The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme, set in the same enchanted world, is her first series for young readers. She lives on the East Coast with her husband and children.
"Vivid world building and Ven's old-fashioned adventuring spirit may fuel young readers' imaginations, and readers unfamiliar with the previous three volumes can start here." --Booklist on The Tree of Water "Haydon not only maintains the dazzling action, convincing characterizations, and vigorous world-building of the first book, but also carefully paves the way for further installments in The Lost Journals of Ven Polypheme series. Another surefire winner." --Booklist on The Thief Queen's Daughter "A delightful epic fantasy that will attract a readership both older and younger than the target audience." --Booklist (starred review) on The Floating Island "Haydon spins a story both warm and thrilling." --Publishers Weekly on The Floating Island "Haydon's fantastical universe, originally created for her adult novels, is filled with fun details, interesting characters, fast-paced adventure, snappy dialogue, and plenty of humor and heart." --School Library Journal on The Floating Island
