"A wonderful tale of friendship and adventure." - JED Says Review
Have you ever just wanted to disappear and escape from all your troubles and woes?
10-year-old Sarah George certainly did after the shocking death of her beloved father. And then to make matters worse (if that was at all possible), her shattered family were forced to move to the middle of nowhere with her revolting Aunt Maude.
But when Sarah accidentally stumbles across an ancient book in the Manor library and is somehow magically transported to a far-off and enchanted land, Sarah soon begins to regret that wish when she finds herself stuck in the In-between.
In her epic, desperate quest to find a way to return home again, Sarah enlists the help of a rag-tag but fiercely loyal group of friends she is fortunate enough to meet during her time in the fantastical Land of Forever: a wise, old badger; a feisty, red-headed leprechaun; a mean-spirited, curmudgeon of a weasel; and a mighty, but sweet-natured fire dragon.
Together, they must battle the dark and sinister forces of the Silent Forest, just waiting to snatch them into its horrifying bowels, on their terrifying journey to locate the Bookkeeper.
But will the Bookkeeper be able to help our weary travelers? Or must they continue to the Middle Lands and the Tournament of the Four Kingdoms, where the most powerful sorcerer in the land holds Sarah's fate entirely in his hands.
A thrilling, page-turning adventure that will be sure to delight young readers for years to come.
