    Summary

    Two lamps were the only sources of light in the bedroom, each sitting on a nightstand on either side of the bed. Arthur had already changed for the night and was sitting up, a book open on his knees and glasses perched on the end of his nose. “Good evening, Mr. Parnassus.”

    Linus smiled. He rather liked the feeling. “Good evening, Mr. Baker,” he replied.

    Summary

    “It’s just a book,” he says. “I was stupid.”

    He doesn’t elaborate, but Arthur comes to place a pleasantly heated hand on his shoulder. Linus can’t help but lean into it.

    “It’s just a book. But books can be very significant,” Arthur says [...] "Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, for instance.”

    At that, Linus has to turn and give Arthur a frown. “You ridicule Bentham and then you talk about Locke.”

    “I’d love to rehash this debate, my dear. Let’s start with Descartes.”

    That particular morning debate lasts about four minutes before the two of them have to hurry to get down for breakfast on time.

    ~

    Linus Baker comes to stay at Marsyas Island to be a part of the family he found, growing closer with his new loved ones. Arthur Parnassus starts to overcome his fear of exposing the children to the outside world with Linus's help. Zoe Chapelwhite considers her bonds, and who she'll let into her home.

    The children continue to be themselves, and terrifyingly, even begin to grow up.

    A story over time about a family--the joys they experience and the challenges they face.

    Summary

    It is a wonderful, terrible thing to be young and foolish and in love.

    As he works to prepare the Marsyas orphanage for the arrival of its first wards, Arthur Parnassus, perhaps the last living phoenix, must choose carefully with whom he is willing to be vulnerable. Charles Werner is half middle manager and half jailer, while the mysterious island sprite seems to know more about who Arthur is than he is entirely comfortable with. And there are things on the island that Arthur would have just as gladly left in the past ...

    In a world where being who you are is no longer accepted life can unsurprisingly be hard sometimes. Luckily for these children, they have some adults taking care of them. Nothing will go wrong, right?

    Summary

    And there it was. The heat, and the question that had been there a while and never quite asked. Part of Linus felt his own heat rise to meet it, as if he was the one who held a phoenix trapped inside himself. A round, fat, sweaty phoenix who could never quite get off the ground.

    Summary

    Arthur Parnassus is an unconventional master of an orphanage for magical youth. At forty-five, he lives in a house in a cerulean sea with six children and an island sprite for company. But his semi-idyllic life is about to change.

    The events of The House in the Cerulean Sea from the perspective of one Arthur Parnassus. When another DICOMY caseworker is assigned to Marsyas Island, he worries. Hopefully, this doesn’t signal the beginning of the end of the life he fought to build. Hopefully, the children will behave, as much as they can.

    Hopefully, Arthur won’t fall in love with this one.

    Summary

    Mr. Linus Baker‘s life ended precisely four weeks, six days, eleven hours and eighteen minutes ago.
    That is to say, his old life. His new life began at that same moment, when he stepped out DICOMY‘s offices and onto a train platform. He sometimes feels quite at sea, since the amount of time he has spent living his new life is so out of balance with all the years he lived out his old one.
    -
    Or, life on Marsyas Island through the lens of three everyday activities: Eating, sleeping and dancing.

    Summary

    Arthur only understands a world of magic and the monsters who make you cry and the monsters who hold you and pet your hair until you fall asleep in their arms. 

    He knows he is not like the children on the mainland, but the others on the island are not like him, either. Their cheeks may also burn pink with shame and the handprint of their master, but they do not have fire in their veins. 

    The other children do not know how close he is to breaking. 

    When Arthur is eleven, he tries to send a letter.
