The Lost Magician
'If you can imagine it, it exists ... somewhere.' The new spellbinding fantasy adventure from the bestselling, award-winning author of The Last Wild trilogy.
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 the magical world of Folio, where an enchanted kingdom of fairy knights, bears and tree gods is under threat from a sinister robot army.
The many stories of the Library are locked in eternal war, and the children's only hope is to find their creator - a magician who has been lost for centuries.
What they find will change not just their own lives, but the fate of the world, for ever ...
An ode to the world of Narnia, The Lost Magician is a classic in the making from one of the UK's most talented children's authors.
Praise for Piers Torday:
'the new master of books for children who like magic and modernity with their lust for adventure' - The Times
In the media
Torday pays tribute to reading, libraries and imagination in one of the most clever and ambitious children's books you'll read this year
An entrancing story that champions imagination at a time when we most need it
You'll be on the edge of your seat ... an original, and imaginative war cry for the importance of reading and the magic of libraries
Thrilling, epic, wise. Truly a book for our times. (With extra rainbow unicorns!)
