The Feather Follower
Mattie can hear her mother crying. Wondering if this is because her stepfather's office keys are missing she decides that she must try and find them before he returns from a business trip. She discovers that though she cannot do this in the real world it may be possible to do so in a fantasy one. A white feather guides her through a magical world where the five holders of the keys live. Not only does she have to find these people but also persuade them to give her their keys. Her quest takes her up a mountain, into caverns, a maze, a wood, and a castle. But nothing is what it seems and lots of obstacles are put in her path.
