From the bestselling author of A Boy Called Christmas, The Girl Who Saved Christmas, Father Christmas and Me and The Truth Pixie. *Winner of the Gold Smarties Prize, the Blue Peter Book Award and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal* Samuel Blink is the hero of this story, but he doesn't know it yet. Right now, he and his sister Martha are in the back of his parents' car. He has no idea a giant log is about to fall from the sky and change his life forever. He doesn't know that he and Martha will be forced to move to Norway and eat their Aunt Eda's smelly brown cheese. He hasn't the slightest clue Martha will disappear into the Shadow Forest - a forest full of one-eyed trolls, deadly Truth Pixies, a shadow-stealing witch and the evil Changemaker. Samuel Blink doesn't know any of this. So don't tell him. It might ruin the book . . . An eerie, funny and exciting fairytale from multi-award-winning author Matt Haig. 'Fascinating and magical . . . Outstanding' The Times

“Just okay”

I 1st read this book when I was 12, I am now 16 and I find the story hard to get into and I also find non of the characters relatable in anyway. However I would recommend the book to younger readers
