Waterstones Says

The debut children’s novel from the illustrator of Philip Pullman’s Book of Dust sequence, The Magic Place is a timeless fable about breaking free from the dark and embracing a bewitching new world of possibility. A beautiful story rippling with wonder and hope, The Magic Place marks Wormell out as an author to watch.

And even though she only saw it in her dreams, she felt sure it was real.

From her cellar bedroom, Clementine dreams of a magic place. And she's determined to find it one day. But first she must escape from her wicked aunt and uncle and from the Great Black City.

With the help of her best friend, Gilbert, a very clever cat, she sets off on an epic journey that just might make her dreams come true. A thrilling, moving and funny adventure about looking for the most magical place of all. HOME.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Brimming with detail and dazzling perspective. One of the last great draughtsmen and hugely inspiring both for those accomplished and aspiring. Walks all over the page like a true pen and ink warrior' - Chris Mould

'The Magic Place is an extraordinary piece of work. So much time and skill has gone into it. There is such excitement in Wormell's scenes and landscapes, plus a wonderful Dickensian sense of the grotesque in his characters' - David Tazzyman
