The Wonders of the Peculiar Parasol, by Mark Even

Hidden under a pile of coats, on an old coat rack in the attic, is a mysterious parasol. Little do three young cousins know that the parasol is enchanted and when held over the shoulder and twirled in the sunshine it has powers that are beyond their reason. In Mark Even’s debut novel in the Dragonstone Story series, The Wonders of the Peculiar Parasol, Gina is transported into Storyworld, where things are quite different indeed and she is escorted by a man known only as The Valet. As each child takes a turn to enter the magical land, they experience amazing adventures they could only have dreamed of, attending a party in a castle or flying through space. And for Mandy, it is the discovery that she is a witch. But when an evil sorceress, Loganna, is freed from her captivity things go from harmless adventures to a fight to save their family legacy that will require all of their courage.
