Summary

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.

"A Clock of Stars: The Shadow Moth fluttered straight into my heart. Sometimes you pick up a book and know – from the very first pages – that you're reading an instant classic. This is one of those books. Prepare to be spellbound." (Carlie Sorosiak, author of I, Cosmo

"...a sparkling debut...boasts a funny, engaging voice, a strong sibling dynamic and a bold, intransigent heroine.” (Guardian)

Absolutely amazing book

This is one of the best books ever. I couldn’t stop listening to it. It’s full of adventure, excitement, moral, sadness, happiness and many more things. Love it.
