Number 1 in series
By Garry Kilworth
Contemporary England melds with medieval Faerieland with extraordinary, wonderful, and terrifying results in this trilogy opener from twice Carnegie-shortlisted author, Garry Kilworth.
Faerieland. It's like a reflection of your world ... a warped reflection. And Jack has just stumbled right into it - with a whole lot of trouble on his tail. Trolls, goblins, ogres and giants ... all after one thing. But Jack's got no clue what. He needs some allies, like now. A wizard maybe. Or a High Fairy. Someone who can do serious magic. Someone who can help him get home. Anyone. Just not a dreamy young boggart named Spiggot...
The Knights of Leofwende continues with: 2. Mallmoc's Castle (July '03) and Boggart and Fen (July '04)
Twice short-listed for the Carnegie prize, Garry Kilworth has written a number of acclaimed stories for children, including the much-loved Welkin Weasels series.
