Waterstones Says

A loving homage to Eva Ibbotson’s The Secret of Platform 13 from superfan Sibeal Pounder, this charming and eccentric novel works brilliantly on its own merits. Desperate to preserve the mist of their island, our band of unlikely heroes venture far afield in search of solutions.

Discover why the secrets are escaping in this fun, magical adventure by Sibeal Pounder, beautifully illustrated by Beatriz Castro. Beyond Platform 13 is inspired by characters from Eva Ibbotson's classic, The Secret of Platform 13.

The Island of Mist is under siege and Odge Gribble and Prince Ben are in hiding. Desperate to find out why the mist is disappearing, Odge travels through the gump to Vienna, to find a mistmaker expert.

But in yet another case of mistaken identity, Odge finds Lina, a nine-year-old girl looking for adventure. With the help of friends old and new, and some very interesting magic, Odge and Lina must discover the secret of the mist, before they lose their beloved island completely.

Sibeal Pounder is the author of Witch Wars and is Eva Ibbotson's biggest fan. Her magical story celebrates twenty-five years of Eva's original, with an updated illustrated edition of The Secret of Platform 13 also available.
