Waterstones Says

As Hazel struggles to adjust to a new life in England, she discovers that the idyllic surroundings of her aunt's cottage house a wealth of sinister creatures in this immersive children's novel from the author of A Pocketful of Stars.

A magical middle grade book about family, friendship and finding your place, with a delicate touch of magic. Perfect for 10-12 year olds and fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Michelle Harrison and Kiran Millwood-Hargrave and The Girl Who Speaks Bear.

Hazel's new life in England should have been the stuff of fairy tales; after all her aunt's cottage looked just like a gingerbread house, with a magical garden and whispering fireflies promising quests and adventures.

But as Hazel struggles to deal with the challenges of the everyday world - making friends, missing her family - she also learns that every fairy tale has a dark side. And there are terrifying creatures that lurk in the shadows...

“Magical, eerie, cleverly woven tale”

'Adventures sound rather exciting, I know. Most stories will tell you to seek them. But the sorts of adventures I went on were bothersome, repetitive and exhausting.'
