Looking for the perfect Christmas gift? Here’s a Tales Before Bedtime recommended bookish gift.
The Lost Magician
by Piers Torday
Perfect for KS2 & KS3
IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IT,
IT MUST EXIST.
It is 1945.
They have survived the Blitz, but when Simon, Patricia, Evelyn and Larry step through a mysterious library door, it is the beginning of their most dangerous adventure yet.
They discover a magical world, where the stories of the library are locked in an eternal war. The children’s only hope is to search for the magician who created them – who has been lost for centuries.
WHAT THEY FIND WILL CHANGE NOT JUST THEIR OWN LIVES, BUT THE FATE OF THE WORLD FOR EVER…
I’ve fallen in love with Piers and his stories this year. He writes beautifully and creates the most moving, exciting adventures.
His latest novel, The Frozen Sea, has also recently been published and is firmly on my wishlist.
