Aaron and Stella are chosen by an invisible Supreme Ruler to retrieve the ancient Book of Understanding.

Aaron and Stella spend every summer at their grandparents’ house, playing on the beach in the day, and eating sushi at night. One evening, the children try some special sushi which transports them to an alternate universe – The Land of the Mind, a place traditionally governed by maths and quantum physics, which is being taken over by evil and chaos.

With the many different areas in the Land of the Mind being ruled over by the Dark Lords of Intolerance, Fear, Pride, Indifference, Betrayal and Despair, the children are tasked with rescuing the Book of Understanding, which contains all the rules on how to live a good life.

Eduard Shyfrin, with his powerful writing, has managed to combine mysticism and fairy-tale with quantum physics, mathematics and philosophy, in a wonderful atmospheric children story

“It is time for you to move onward,” said Sophie. “But beware; the closer you come to the book, the more strongly forces will oppose you.”

Restore peace to this fractured world before it is lost forever.

“You can choose to go back,” she croaked. “Of course you can, and tell yourselves that millions of people live normal, peaceful lives without having to make any effort to overcome any of the great evils in the world. But bear in mind that you may never again be offered an opportunity like this.”
