When the rest of her family goes to help search for the missing uncle, she is shunted off to stay with the stern old lady across the street. While Jelly is at the depths of her despair, a whisper in the dead of night leads her to a book in the forbidden attic ... and the adventure of a lifetime.

What a great adventure... I was so impressed with how AJ Smith developed cool characters in both real and unusual worlds. Although aimed at young ages, this is the kind of story that older readers here loved too!
