Aaron & Stella spend summers at their grandparents, playing on the beach during the day & eating sushi at night. One evening, the children try some special sushi which transports them to an alternate universe, The Land of the Mind, a place traditionally governed by math & quantum physics, which is being taken over by evil and chaos.
The children are tasked with rescuing the Book of Understanding, containing rules on living a good life. While preserving universal relevance, the novel is imbued with Jewish values, a metaphor for the People of the Book. Chosen because of their relationship to the Golden Ratio (Phi), the children travel on a Phi-Flyer & are guided by a wise raven. The children must learn how to navigate the infinite dimensions of quantum physics to save the Land of the Mind from falling into chaos. This children’s novel introduces children to quantum physics and classic morality through an adventure in another universe. Doing for quantum mechanics what Alice in Wonderland did for mathematics, it’s a celebration of the power of words and the role of science, exquisitely illustrated.
