A novel with echoes of timeless classics such as THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, THE BORROWERS and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, Garry Kilworth's ATTICA reveals a twilight world of forgotten wonders, and extraordinary adventures - all happening just above our heads. Join Jordy, Alex and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful other place, accessible for just a moment in time through the trap-door of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests, to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises - and that's before they meet the inhabitants: strange clans of small and lumpen people who live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and - somehow - find a way back home.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book is reminiscent of Narnia with its alternative, magical world. A fantastic read that will have imaginations working overtime - The Bookseller

An excellent book, good and original and, in all the best ways, strange - Neil Gaiman

Kilworth sends his fully dimensional characters on an exhilarating adventure - Booklist

One to watch. The book belongs in the mainstream of children's literature and has the ingredients to make it an 'adventure in the attic - classic’
