Book Description

22 Jun 2009 Terry, the Torus and the Tumblestones
Terry should never have been in the middle of Crow Wood that night - then the Torus couldn't have sucked him into the strange new world. But he was, and it did. So now he has a problem. To have any chance of getting home again, he needs to find the seven stones - but the Baron's secret police are closing in fast. Unless his new friends Gwen, Meeshka and Polka can help him solve the riddles and find the mysterious Watcher, Terry will never see his home again...". Watch out for the next two books in this mega-exciting adventure! Book Two - The Pale Death Moon. Book Three - The Guardian of the Past.

More About the Author

C. P. Goy (Chris Paul, for those interested) is the author of many short stories, magazine articles, a comedy musical (Crazy Capers, Dodgy Deals), and most recently, his Terry, the Torus and the Tumblestones series for children (and, it turns out, adults too.)
"I write when I have a story to tell," says Chris. "I never expected the adult fan base to be almost as big as the children's for this series. One day, I had this idea - what if you told a story, and nobody knew until the very end that... . From that moment on, the Tumblestones story just had to be told. It grew into three books with a big surprise at the end, so remember, there's something nobody knows yet...!"

The second book in the series, The Pale Death Moon, was published on 1st September 2010. One of the 'first reader' reviews declared: "This fabulous book has one of the most exciting endings I've ever read!" In March 2012 it was awarded the Flamingnet "Top Rated Award" by student reviewers.

The final book in the series, The Guardian of the Past, was released early on 1st August 2011, to the delight of many readers. Readers are respectfully requested to keep the big surprise at the end secret so other people can enjoy the ending. The proof reader of the final book declared:
"Rarely does the conclusion of a story both astonish and deeply satisfy. All the mysteries of the first two books are revealed, and the poignancy of the ending will leave both adults and children richly rewarded."

Chris lives in County Durham with his wife Elaine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven Stones- brilliant book 16 Nov 2009
A Kid's Review
I was lucky enough to meet the author, Chris Goy, and get a signed copy of this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through. It's impossible to put it down as there is always something exciting around the corner. I'd recommend this book to all children who enjoy an adventure. This is a great book and I just can't wait for the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read this year 6 Aug 2009
The comments in the front of this book are spot on. The characters and places do feel incredibly real. I think that's what makes this so good because you actually care what happens to Terry, Gwen, Meeshka and Polka (he's so cool!)It makes it much more exciting too so if you're like me you will find this book hard to put down. Nearly every chapter ends in an exciting way. Good points are excitement, the riddles, and wondering how it will all be explained. Bad points are having to wait for the next book to find out! All in all I would say this book can be enjoyed by anyone. Adults and kids. It's the best book I've read this year and I just can't stop thinking about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love this, your children will be next 5 Jan 2010
It is refreshing to read a story that isnt all about twists and turns and double dealing. There is a great pleasure in reading a story where most people are genuine (Some are not); where evil people exist but are not caricatures of a 1940's film noir.
Yes, it is a book that children will enjoy thoroughly. But it is a book that adults will love and be able to read with their children and enjoy.
Once the original premise is set, its narrative is cracking and doesnt stop.
Characterisation is its strength and I loved the evil baron, who had a grasp of realpolitik.
You wont be disappointed; well maybe if you dont buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I just cant wait for the next one!! 1 Dec 2009
I REALLY liked this book!!! It's just different somehow and I like different. The characters aren't like your normal fantasy weird impossible people that do crazy things. They are more like people I know and it feels like you are part of the whole thing even though I couldn't solve the riddles before Polka!

I just CAN'T WAIT for the next book so please HURRY UP C.P.Goy!!!!
