can·ti·cle (kān'tĭ-kəl) n.  
  1. A song or chant, especially a nonmetrical hymn

It seemed like ages since Kate's father went off to war, and she is eager to
thank him for the beautiful  German music box he sent for her birthday.  But
when it starts playing a strange, new melody and Kate vanishes into thin air,
Captain Edison is willing to do anything to rescue his little girl.

When the Canticle Kingdom is attacked and the queen falls deathly ill, Joann,
a young blacksmith's apprentice, learns a terrible secret - the kingdom is contained
entirely within a music box in another world..  With the help pf his friends, Johann
races to bring aid from that other world in an effort to stop the dark power that
threatens to destroy them all.

Enter a beautiful world full of magic, danger, loyalty, and bravery in
The Canticle Kingdom, and discover that even the most ordinary objects
and people might be hiding something truly wonderful inside.
