In search of stolen whispers . . .
For over a thousand years, the Box of Whispers has guarded the most precious treasure in the Land of Een.
So, when the Box is suddenly stolen, an unlikely crew is assembled to travel into the wilds of the outside world—and, to everyone’s surprise, one of the chosen is the young misfit, Kendra Kandlestar.
Before she knows it, the girl who has always dreamed of adventure is swept away on a magical journey where doors speak in riddles, plants cast dangerous spells, and strange creatures seem to lurk in every shadow—and the only thing she has to help her is a handful of enchanted carrot seeds.
