From the Inside Flap
Tizzie and Louis are on holiday in Cornwall. When they arrive at the beach, they go off exploring and discover a cave - rather a magical cave as it turns out, and they soon find themselves in Kernowland where they come across some weird and not-so-wonderful characters. After being attacked by giant climbing crabs, they have the great misfortune to meet the nasty Melanchol Drym, the fearsome Cap'n Pigleg, the slimy Mr and Mrs Maggitt, and the none-too-nice Brazilian brainboiler tree - to mention just a few... --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

They can be somewhat bloodthirsty, but this does not seem to bother children (in the tradition of Grimm etc!), and there are many good touches that make them think - the slave boat going to "Acirfa" for instance. When he worked out this was Africa, he then started looking for all the other anagrams!
As we live in Cornwall, he has had fun spotting the place names of places we go and have been to.
Great book for reluctant readers too - I have recommended to several friends children, who weren't that keen to read, and they have all been engrossed too!
My 7 year old ASD child who cant read was also taken by the book and even though he usually throws books away in frustration, he really treasures this one.
I have read this book with my children and its brilliant. Not just the story which is an adventure set in Cornwall but the text, the layout of the book, the colour of the pages and the length of each chapter. These points may not seem important to some but those parents who have reluctant readers or those with dyslexia, irlen syndrome, ASD etc will appreciate how important these are.
If you want to buy a child a gift then make it this one!
Note the author: Thank you!
There are only two downsides to this great book is the length of the chapters because some are only two pages long and the pictures are in the back of the book so you have to keep constanly flipping to the back of the book just to see a picture!
Apart from those two downsides all round great book, if I had to age rate it I would say eight plus. ( - :
