A spell-binding new children's book from one of Britain's best-loved authors of fantasy adventure.
Perfect for fans of Eva Ibbotson, Inkheart, and the Charlie Bone series.
The yellow letter arrived on a Saturday, otherwise Henry would have been at school.
The envelope was such a bright, sunny colour, no one would have believed that it contained a bombshell.
Less than 10 minutes after the arrival of the mysterious letter, Henry is on the run with his Auntie Pearl, possibly never to return home.
Henry has a secret. He is twelve, but he hasn't aged a day since the moment he was thrust a hundred years into the future.
Now his secret has put him in danger. His only hope is the protection of the Guardians of the Lost.
A wonderfully immersive fantasy book for children aged 9 and up. "A fast moving, dialogue-driven romp with plenty of cliff-hangers for those first hooked into reading by Harry Potter". (The Bookseller on Midnight for Charlie Bone).
