Not only are we delighted to bring you our first online author event we are thrilled that Francesca Gibbons is one of our local authors.
With all the magic of Narnia and the humour of Mary Poppins, this is a future middle grade fantasy classic - and the beginning of an unforgettable journey…
Imogen should be nice to her little sister Marie. She should be nice to her mum's boyfriend too. And she certainly shouldn't follow a strange silver moth through a door in a tree. But then… who does what they're told?
Followed by Marie, Imogen finds herself falling into a magical kingdom where the two sisters are swept up in a thrilling race against time - helped by the spoiled prince of the kingdom, a dancing bear, a very grumpy hunter… and even the stars above them.
Thrilling, sharply funny, and with characters you will fall in love with, A Clock of Stars is a timeless fantasy from an astonishing new voice.
When I read A Clock of Stars it took me back to reading The Faraway Tree by torchlight under the covers after lights out...such is the magic of Francesca's storytelling and with illustrations by award winning author and artist Chris Riddell, this is a book you will want to keep on your bookshelf for generations to come.
I cannot wait to introduce both book and author to you on 9th October at 6pm...via zoom of course. The event is free but if you would like a signed copy of The Clock of Stars, £12.99 then please email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop in and see us on Burford High Street.
