A Daring Quest. True Consequences. Moral Courage.
Hamelin Stoop’s adventure begins.

Afraid of being caught by trackers from another world, a young mother abandons her baby boy in a tomato box inside the screened porch of a children’s home. The staff at the orphanage name him Hamelin Stoop, but he grows up longing to learn his real name, find his parents, and thus discover his true identity.

When the children’s home forgets his eighth birthday, he sneaks away at night. He soon discovers that he isn’t just running away — he is being summoned by the Ancient One. Guided by the Great Eagle through a mysterious cave, Hamelin must pass a dangerous test of courage before he can find his parents.

Hamelin’s failures, fears, and hopes become part of a larger story, a story of a great struggle between worlds and kingdoms where the old myths of magic, evil contracts, and enslaved children turn out to be real.

In this young adult fantasy series, Robert B. Sloan presents dynamic characters, strange new worlds, adventure, and of course, a battle between good and evil. This series is clean fiction, perfect for an older child or teen’s individual reading, or as a read-aloud for the family.

Be the Hands Curriculum Units

Kick off this holiday season by helping your kids learn about God's heart for the world and how they can live out His call to love others--from next door to around the globe. Engage your child with a real world issue from a biblical perspective, and help them understand how God has uniquely designed them to make a difference.

Be the Hands units:

  1. Build critical thinking skills: Students use online resources to learn about a big issue and complete activities to help them process deeply.
  2. Develop a biblical worldview: Students learn what God says about global issues in His Word and build their understanding of His character.
  3. Grow compassion: Students discover how an issue affects real people around the world. Stories build empathy and compassion as kids put themselves in the shoes of someone in need.
  4. Put love into action: Students choose a project, big or small, to make a difference right from home. God has called each of us to love one another, so let’s get started!

Home Instructor’s Guides: Include discussion questions, extension ideas, ways to include younger family members, and ideas for adapting lessons to groups/co-ops.

Student Notebooks: Available for Grades 4-5 and Grades 6-8.
