Mosaic stirred the powder
with his fingertips. The powder rose from the table and swirled on its own. Gazing into the swirl, Mosaic the wizard caught a glimpse of Kazmir in his jeweled box. "Kazmir, from this stone you were born, your soul carved from rock of old, return now, for we must find the goddess with a heart of gold."
While on expedition
with her father in egypt, 12 year-old Michael-Ann discovers Kazmir, an enchanted toy camel with wings. Magically, she and Kazmir are summoned back to ancient Egypt by Mosaic the Great Wizard in order to rescue the young Pharaoh imprisoned among the Five Skies. Along the journey Michael-Ann encounters mystical creatures and learns the true meaning of balance, forgiveness and acceptance.
