About the Author

Philippa Pearce’s books include Mrs. Cockle’s Cat, which received the Kate Greenaway Medal, and The Battle of Bubble and Squeak, winner of the Whitbread Medal. She lives in England.

From Our Editors

The line between fantasy and reality is often blurred. A mesmerizing tale of a boy's journey across the boundaries of reality, this Carnegie Medal winner has the appeal of such works as Indian in the Cupboard and Behind the Attic Wall. This imaginative and beautiful book is a must for the bookshelf of all classrooms.

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
