Why not come along on Ruth

Ruth Bay, a shy and bookish ten year-old girl, loves to ride her bicycle to nearby Lavender Village Bookstore.  In the corner of the stores sits an enchanted armchair, and one day, feeling more adventurous than usual, Ruth sits in the chair to peruse an Egyptian history book and suddenly finds herself magically transported into the pages.  Thrust back in time, and all at once able to interact with the storybook’s characters, Ruth Bay embarks on an amazing journey and encounters a multitude of people and mythical creatures, including a Mummy, a goddess, and an evil, dictator Minotaur, who has overthrown the king.
