Stony Lake, Canada, with laughing loons, sullen sunfish and dangerous deadheads this is where Aditi and friends are off to this time. Their mission is a message for the Techno Sage. The Sage, however, has covered her island with a shield through which not even emails can penetrate. Dragons, a scientist sage, time-stretching jewels and a princess with an unusual assortment of friends, all come together in this techno-generation fantasy tale. But beneath the hi-tech trappings lie everyday issues of friendship and courage, dealt with in the author's inimitable style with sensitivity, sophistication and humour.
