'The Book of Lost Magic'
"The Book of Lost Magic," written and illustrated by students at the Jacksonville Arts & Music School, is a tale that explores the meaning of friendship.
Kai, Kam, Mira and Bash go from questioning each other to learning to trust and working together to defeat the evil Apollyon, who would want nothing more than to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
