Mit ‘Middleworld’ getaggte Beiträge

Fourteen-year-old Max Murphy is a typical city slicker whose best adventures involve pizza and video games. His parents are famous archaeologists but Max isn’t interested at all in their archeological craziness for Mayan culture including old pottery or ancient artifacts. For this reason they always leave him behind with Zia, their housekeeper, when they head off for foreign countries to excavate ancient Maya ruins. Max hates this and is really happy that his parents want to spend more time with him and plan a holiday trip to Italy together. But everything is ruined when his parents receive an unexpected permission to do another dig in Central America. Max is furious because they leave him alone and want to send him to a wilderness camp in Maine.

But instead of heading off to the camp, Zia tells him shortly after his parents‘ departure, that they want him to join them in San Xavier. When Max arrives there, he learns that his parents have mysteriously disappeared exploring an ancient Maya pyramid in the rain forest. His Uncle Ted, who seems to hate him, becomes his instant guardian.

Although his uncle doesn’t allow him to leave the house he runs away and gets lost in the rain forest. There, he meets Lola, a Mayan girl, and her two monkey friends who want to help him find out what actually happened to his parents. They discover hidden pyramids and ruins and mysterious treasures. It doesn’t take long and they have to run for their lives themselves because they accidentally summon evil Maya kings. Those want to hold the power of the Jaguar stones that can change the world. If all five stones are brought together the world is in great danger. (mehr …)
