Tomek lives a quiet life running his late parents' village store, which has everything you could ever need, and more. Then one day a girl visits. She asks Tomek if he sells something he's never heard of before: a drop of water from the magical River Qjar, which flows back to front and upside down. When he admits he has none, she slips away.

Tomek is desperate to follow the mysterious girl, and so he sets out on an incredible adventure. To find the upside down river, he must journey through strange and wondrous places: the Forest of Oblivion where monstrous bears roam, a meadow of deadly scented flowers, a long-hidden island cursed by a witch, and beyond . . .

A million-copy bestseller in France, this beloved fantasy story is at last published in English for the very first time.

"A fantasy story bursting with singular charm... The tone of this book is unlike anything else in the children’s book world now. It’s philosophical, profound, yet playful too, and Tomek’s journey is truly eye-opening." - Andrea Reece, LoveReadings

“old style fairy tale for modern readers”

At first I wasn't sure about this book (i completely missed a sentence, and thought it was about an old man for some reason!), but once i realised my mistake, i got really into it. It reads like an old style... More
