Travels with Sushi
Eduard Shyfrin, author
Aaron and Stella spend every summer at their grandparents’ house, playing on the beach in the day, and 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 maths and quantum physics, which is being taken over by evil and chaos. With the many different areas in the Land of the Mind being ruled over by the Dark Lords of Intolerance, Fear, Pride, Indifference, Betrayal and Despair, the children are tasked with rescuing the Book of Understanding, which contains all the rules on how to live a good life. Travels with Sushi in the Land of the Mind is an atmospheric children’s novel by Eduard Shyfrin which 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 by the talented Tomislav Tomic. Beautifully produced, Travels with Sushi makes a perfect gift, and is an educational, fun and imaginative debut novel.
