Sisters and brothers. Cats and dogs. Science and sports. Rivals or allies? Author James Larson plunges into the madcap world of middle school with his new Winnie and Winslow Adventure series.

The first book, “A” is for the Alchemist, introduces readers to twelve-year-old Winslow, who wants to do well in the upcoming football championship, and his brilliant kid sister, Winnie, who is finishing her sure-to-win entry for the national science contest—a robot designed with unique artificial intelligence that enables it to sing any and every piece of music.

Unbeknownst to them, Winnie and Winslow’s brilliance and bravery are about to be tested by a mad scientist who will stop at nothing to master the art of turning base metal into gold. And he’s just discovered that Winnie’s robot holds the key to his formula.

Joined by Cavalcade, the family cat, and Amulet, a cowardly homeless dog who dreams of being part of the family, too, Winnie and Winslow must set aside their differences and pool their resources if they have any hope of stopping the villainous alchemist before he kills anyone.

A thrilling young-adult adventure that will keep you guessing—and laughing—from start to finish, you’ll be glad this is just the beginning.
