New Release Features Fantasy with a Message

With the release of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic story A Wrinkle in Time in film version, fantasy with a message is finding a broader audience and experiencing renewed interest. In that tradition, Adventures with Theophilos Pott, a new release by Roger Long, joins the genre. Released by Redemption Press, this novel for tweens (ages ten to fifteen) tells the story of five children in a family who learn a family secret that takes them into the wondrous land of Everlight. There they meet one Theophilos Pott, an ageless bookstore owner, who leads the children into this mysterious land.

Awaiting in Everlight are talking tigers, a dragon that must undo a terrible wrong, and Princess Gwyn who needs the children’s help in fighting a battle far larger than themselves. As spreading darkness threatens to destroy the power of the light, the siblings learn to face difficulties with courage, the value of friendship, and how to life a life of purpose.

Roger Long, a former educator and current pastor of a small congregation in southwestern Illinois says, “The adventure with Mr. Pott takes readers on a journey of self-discovery that helps them see they all have gifts and abilities that make them unique. With the help of others, they learn they can find the courage to do things they could never do by themselves.”

Long is also the author of Ree’s Mountain, a fantasy for teens and young adults. Long says, “When we listen and see with our hearts, we learn much about ourselves, see how very special we are, and we see friends that we would have missed because we chose not to see them.”
