Waterstones Says

The debut children’s novel from the illustrator of Philip Pullman’s Book of Dust sequence, The Magic Place is a timeless fable about breaking free from the dark and embracing a bewitching new world of possibility. 

'And even though she only saw it in her dreams, she felt sure it was real.' Clementine works as a slave for her wicked aunt and uncle. But she dreams of a magic place, and she's determined to escape and find it. With the help of a very clever cat, she sets off on an adventure that might just make her dreams come true.
