“With a playful nod to Indiana Jones, the intrepid duo of Hananh and Clooney take readers on a rollicking adventure through the exotic locales of Israel. Packed with mind-bending riddles and a healthy dose of excitement, Hannah and the Magic Eye has a lot to say about cooperation, friendship, and acceptance, no matter the gender, religion, or disastrously fitting sunglasses.” —Natasha Deen, author of Guardian and Gatekeeper.

Hannah And The Magic Eye is the story of Hannah and Samir, two unlikely friends who embark on a fast-paced treasure hunt though modern-day Jerusalem to find the famed treasure of King Solomon’s Temple—the largest unrecovered fortune in history. But racing alongside them is the Cancellarii, the dangerous secret society of treasure hunters who kidnapped Hannah’s grandfather— the famed archeologist Henri Dubuisson. Now Hannah and Samir must rescue her grandfather by reaching the treasure first, and ransoming it back to the Cancellarii for her grandfather’s freedom.
But first Hannah and Samir must decipher an enchanted map and follow its clues through seven of Jerusalem’s most exotic sites. They must evade the Israeli police, ride camels through the desert, swim with hippies in the Dead Sea, drink copious black coffee, hitchhike with friendly Arabs, and somehow outfox the Cancellarii as they search for a pile of gold worth more than 56 billion dollars.
“what Enfield does really well is to identify a variety of religious and historical influences on culture and how that impacts the relationship between a Jewish girl and a Palestinian boy. Hannah and the Magic Eye is strongly recommended for readers who have enjoyed Enfield’s Wrush and other lightening paced adventure stories with multiple twists and turns.” – CM Magazine
