Booth, Martin. Doctor Illuminatus [The Alchemist's Son #1] Little Brown,
2004 [0-316-01285-8]
Pip and his brother Tim move into an old English estate with their family
and run into a strange boy, Sebastian.  He turns out to be the son of a
alchemist from the Middle Ages and has been asleep for many years.  It is
his job to stop an evil alchemist from making a homunculs (artificial
human.)  Of course Sebastian enlists the help of Pip and Tim to fight the
evil madman.  This 183 page book is evil and dark.  It reminded me of a
cross between Harry Potter and John Bellair's books.
