Description

"Now-twelve-year-old Angus McFangus and his friends encounter a storm vortex and a stranger from the crypts"--

Praise for THE LIGHTNING CATCHER: “Mixing serious science with full-on fantasy.…With a motley collection of instructors, dangerous lightning dragons, a cinematic setting, and all manner of malevolent treachery, this fantastical adventure will find a wide audience.”

Auteur

Anne Cameron got the original idea for the Lightning Catcher series after reading an article about fulgurites, which are formed when lightning strikes sand with such ferocity that it melts the particles together and forms amazing, rootlike glass tubes. What would happen, she wondered, if lightning bolts could be caught deliberately, by expert lightning catchers?

Anne Cameron lives in England.



Texte du rabat

You have returned to the Perilous Exploratorium for Violent Weather and Vicious Storms. Enter, if you are prepared to face:

Murderous mist
Rancid rain
Scarlet sleeping snow
And four more types of dangerous weather, to make up the Deadly Seven

But none of the Deadly Seven is as hazardous as the swirling weather vortex surrounding the castle of the villain Scabious Dankhart. And nothing about the vortex is as deadly as the secret it is hiding.



Résumé

The funny, fast-paced third book in The Lightning Catcher series! Part Storm Chasers and part The 39 Clues, this school adventure story about twelve-year-old Angus McFangus and his dangerous gift for predicting catastrophic weather combines science, weather, and the fantastical.

Angus McFangus and his two best friends, Indigo Midnight and Dougal Dewsnap, are starting their second year at the Perilous Exploratorium for Violent Weather and Vicious Storms, where they are being trained to study and, eventually, become lightning catchers and manage the world's most dangerous weather. They have more than lessons on their minds, however—namely, the fate of Angus's parents, who have been kidnapped by the villain Scabious Dankhart. Angus's parents are kept prisoner in Castle Dankhart, where a violent weather explosion has created a "storm vortex" so that no one can tell what is going on inside. It's Angus, Indigo, and Dougal to the rescue. . . . Will they get there in time and all in one piece? Action-packed, lighthearted, and perfect for reluctant readers!
