Synopsis

Every hundred years, in the magical town of Knockmealldown, fairies known as the Good Folk join the villagers for a Great Festival. It's a raucous, beautiful, enchanted celebration.
Well, it's supposed to be.
Except every time Brian helps to organise the Great Festival it's a disappointment. Worse, this time the Folk Princess has been stolen. Can Brian thwart the Princess's evil captor in time to avoid the wrath of the Folk King and Queen, and finally deliver a Festival to remember?

A magical adventure filled with myth, mischief and misunderstandings, perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman and Diana Wynne Jones and those who love modern fairy tales with a comic twist.

In the media
A charismatic, frolicking sense of absurdity, The Cloak of Feathers dances precariously along a rope-bridge woven of folklore, comedy, danger and delight, beckoning the beguiled reader to follow. - Imogen Russell Williams, THE TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
