“It was a beautiful thing… some wonderfully silly moments and an adventure with lots of heart. Marvellous work!” – Professor Elemental
“A well-written, wonderfully funny and engaging book. The book could be enjoyed by confident early readers or work equally well read aloud to encourage future reading.
The characters are entertaining and distinct and the story is imaginative and exciting.
Recommend.” – Maria, Amazon review
My first novel, based in an alternative Britain, the steam-driven country Albion Magna.
It is aimed at 8 – 12 years and the curious older reader and features illustrations by Nick Watton (http://nickwatton.com).
When the greatest minds at the Institute of Alchemic Sciences launch their portal into another world with the express intention of kidnapping an atomic scientist, they can little imagine that they will net themselves two young and very bemused children instead.
Abandoned by their captors and left to fend for themselves in a foreign, steam-powered land, things look grim for the dimension-hopping youngsters. That is until Institute Director Doctor Rheingold realises that the knowledge the children have of their own world could be useful to his ambitious plans and is desperate to get them back.
Embark on a voyage through the steampunk world of Albion Magna, with crazy vehicles more dangerous than practical, talking animals, mad scientists, formidable housekeepers, airship chases, and two kids who just want to get home.
