The Rescue of Ravenwood (Paperback)Natasha Farrant (author)
One of the most accomplished children's writers around triumphs again with this engrossing and empowering story of fighting for what you believe in, as a group of children set out to save the incredible titular house from demolition.
From the Costa Award winning author of Voyage of the Sparrowhawk comes an epic adventure with a call to arms: we must fight to save the most treasured things on our planet. Ravenwood. A place where things happen . . . On the top of the hill, overlooking the sea, that's where you'll find a magical place . . . To Bea and Raffy, Ravenwood is home. In its own way, the house rescued them, even if it did have a fallen-down tree taking up most of the kitchen. So the idea that it could be sold. Demolished even. Well, that's unthinkable. Then again, it's not like the children get a choice. But the truth is, we can all make our own choices, especially if we care enough . . . A beautiful, soulful, exciting story about holding onto what's precious, and guarding the extraordinary nature that surrounds us.
