In The Key, Mack must find more of the Magnificent 12, the twelve twelve-year-olds fated to stop the queen from destroying the world, and assemble a keyÑa cheat sheet, reallyÑto a magical language. Along the way, heÕll transform the Loch Ness monster into a gigantic duck, and transport the Eiffel Tower across the River Seine.
