A new cover edition of Eva Ibbotson's hilarious, fantastical young fiction book.
Under Platform13 at Kings Cross Station there is a secret door that leads to a magical island...It appears only once every nine years. And when it opens, four mysterious figures step into the streets of London. A wizard, an ogre, a fey and a young hag have come to find the prince of their kingdom, stolen as a baby nine years before. But the prince has become a horrible rich boy called Raymond Trottle who doesn't understand magic and is determined not to be rescued. 'This kind of fun will never fail to delight.' - Philip Pullman.See all Product description

not great for young readers. Paragraphs jump between places without a change in style/font/heading which was hard for my 8 year old to understand. I started re-reading it with him cos he said 'i don't get it' and a few times I was caught out and saying "oh, hang on, we've now jumped back to the first place and the other lot of people!"
but after reading This little book you could get the feeling that maybe the Lovely and talented Miss Rowling just maybe may have read this little book when she was a small child, and enjoyed it so much that it buried its self in her Sub-conscience. probably not , but its a nice whimsical thought.
but all i know my neice did seem to have enjoyed it and so did I :-)
