December Book of the Month
Sometimes at the darkest hour, hope shines the brightest…
In Blitz-bombed London, Col discovers a world where myths and legends are real. Accompanied by his guardians – a six-foot tiger, a well-dressed badger and a tiny knight – Col sets out on a quest to save his sister. But there are darker forces at work here. Soon Col is pursued by the terrifying Midwinter King, who is determined to bring an eternal darkness down over everything.
A gripping, unusual adventure with strong themes of self-belief, courage and the bonds of family and friendship. The mix of magical realism and WW2 tension works well.
