He sat down and played his favourite song that the old man had taught him years before on his golden shell. His mind was flooded by memories of the stories about his grandfather’s adventures through a magical place where he had met many delightful creatures.
This book introduces you to Itzamna. In a meeting of the highest Mayan gods, it is decided to hide THE KEY. The great Shaman Tat is requested to hide THE KEY’s segments in places where Kukulkan will never find them.
With Ti and the Magical Key: How it all began, Dana Popov and Marc Evans have created a suspenseful story of a young boy ordered to search the magical key. Ti and his new friend are believable and lovingly described; if you were not a turtle fan before – you might become one, now. It is a great story about friendship, suitable for children aged 6+. The story has a very pleasant flow, cute drawings assisting the plot line. Ti and the Magical Key: How it all began is a very enjoyable read – not only for children.
This is for you and/or your children if you like children’s adventures and/or folk tales with a slightly educational touch.

About the author
We started the story of Ti and the Magical Key™ back in 2007 with the intention of bringing awareness to the tourists in what is today called the Riviera Maya. We had focused especially on the Mayan culture and the environment in this area however we never completed the story.
Being a parent with a daughter who loves her books no matter if they are in English, Spanish, French or German inspired us to have a look again at Ti. We finished the first story in 6 weeks and are already close to finish the second one. There is a time for everything so it seems.
