You can never go wrong with Joan Aiken, nothing really else to say as I dont want to spoil the inventive story, but its mystical, magical, moving and atmospheric.
Perfect for an 8 to 80 year old...

Highly imaginative children's book set in Wales with very appealing characters. The text is sprinkled with Welsh words and there is a glossary at the back, which fascinated me as a child. I've always felt since that Wales was a little bit mystical.

Am exciting story and a thoroughly good read - even for adults.

The book may have been first published over 40 years ago but I think it still stands up well. When I was young it drew me in to the story where i lived the adventure with Owen, Arabis and the others- and having re-read it recently I could see why I so enjoyed so much.

This is tangentially related to the James III sequence, and is a a tale of adventures and sinister goings on featuring schoolboy Owen, the Seljuk of Rum, and various other characters. It has an atmosphere as shadowy and sinister as "The Cuckoo Tree", as many dastardly plots as "Black hearts in Battersea", and lots of action and adventure. I think it's out of print, but I can't imagine why!
