Synopsis:
The beautifully spellbinding and critically-acclaimed story of a thousand magical worlds from the author of A Girl Called Owl and A Far Away Magic. When daydreamer Clementine discovers a mysterious house standing in the middle of town that was never there before, she is pulled towards it by the powerful sense of a mother she never knew. The place is full of snowglobes, swirling with stars and snow and each containing a trapped magician, watched over by Gan, the bitter keeper of the house. One of these is Dylan, a boy who teases her in the real world but who is now desperate for her help. So Clem ventures into the snowglobes, rescuing Dylan and discovering her own powerful connection to the magic of these thousand worlds. Vowing to release the magicians from the control of their enchantments, Clem unknowingly unleashes a struggle for power that will not only put her family, but the future of magic itself in danger. 'One of the most purely original and imaginative children's books I have read this year' Piers Torday, author of The Lost Magician 'Amy Wilson is the rising star of children's fantasy' Telegraph Best Children's Books of the Year 'Beautiful prose, a wholly original premise and filled to the brim with fairytale magic. Perfect reading as the colder nights draw in' Abi Elphinstone, author of Sky Song 'A spellbinding adventure in a magical and darkly beautiful world . . . utterly captivating' Sophie Anderson, author of The House with Chicken Legs
