Waterstones Says

Utterly irresistible and hugely imaginative, the first instalment of a thrilling, funny fantasy series finds two misbehaving sisters plunged into a magical kingdom to face a deadly threat.

Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize Younger Readers Prize 2021

With all the magic of Narnia and the humour of Mary Poppins, this is a future middle grade fantasy classic - and the beginning of an unforgettable journey...

Imogen should be nice to her little sister Marie. She should be nice to her mum's boyfriend too. And she certainly shouldn't follow a strange silver moth through a door in a tree.
But then... who does what they're told?

Followed by Marie, Imogen finds herself falling into a magical kingdom where the two sisters are swept up in a thrilling race against time - helped by the spoiled prince of the kingdom, a dancing bear, a very grumpy hunter... and even the stars above them.

Thrilling, sharply funny, and with characters you will fall in love with, A Clock of Stars is a timeless fantasy from an astonishing new voice.

“Fear it turned out trumped most emotions.”

Moths come in all sizes, some are so small you hardly see them at all. Others are large enough to follow. I have to admit to never following a moth – apart from when I have tried to take the odd photograph of a... More

“Fizzing with fairytale know-how”

With echoes of Narnia and the traditional fairytales we all know, more than a sprinkling of the Slavic, plus a dose of modern life in our main characters, their sibling rivalries and their feelings towards mum’s new... More

“A truly excellent adventure!”

Portal fantasy is a staple of children's fantasy, and it's always a treat to see a new take on it - and Gibbons knocks it out of the park. The Shadow Moth works as a standalone, but I am delighted that the... More
