Waterstones Says

Welcome to a world of flying dragons, magical mermaids, ninja wizards, wicked scarecrows and wildly inventive adventure. Welcome to The Land of Roar. Reminiscent of Peter Pan, The Neverending Story and Jumanji, Jenny McLachlan’s fantasy sweeps readers up in a page-turning adventure that is primed to kindle children’s unbridled imagination.

Our Children's Book of the Month for August 2019

The first in a new children's fantasy adventure series, full of imagination, humour and heart, and with echoes of Peter Pan, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Neverending Story and Jumanji. The Land of Roar is perfect for children aged 8 to 12, and can sit on their bookshelf next to Nevermoor, Wizards of Once and How to Train Your Dragon.

Readers can bring their fantasy world to life and meet dragons, unicorns, mermaids and more in this beautifully illustrated children's book. Believing is just the beginning . . .

When Arthur and Rose were little, they were heroes in the Land of Roar, an imaginary world that they found by climbing through the folding bed in their grandad's attic. Roar was filled with things they loved - dragons, mermaids, ninja wizards and adventure - as well as things that scared them (including a very creepy scarecrow. . .). 

Now the twins are eleven, Roar is just a memory. But when they help Grandad clean out the attic, Arthur is horrified as Grandad is pulled into the folding bed and vanishes. Is he playing a joke? Or is Roar . . . real?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A vividly imagined adventure, [...] full of heart, humour and a terrifying villain.' - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

'This is proof, not that it's needed, that Jenny McLachlan is a writer of enormous heart and versatility. I'm a really big fan.' - Phil Earle, award-winning author of Being Billy and co-author of Get Me Out of Here! with Andy McNab

'Roar is an exhilarating, hilarious, vividly drawn tribute to the power of the childhood imagination, the love of family and the magic we risk losing as we grow up. If you plan to visit one new place in 2019, make it Roar.' - Sarah Driver, author of The Huntress trilogy
