about

Our hero Iffleplum is no ordinary ifflepinn. He dreams of dashing deeds and derring-do and saving damsels in distress. But on finding himself entrapped in a faery mushroom ring and menaced by the shambling shadow-creatures known as Gropes, he thinks again-too late! -- "Don't throw your heart away on wild deeds," his Iffle-mother Mumkin had warned him. But alas! when his wild wishes suddenly come true, in fearful shock, the spirit of his heart flies out as he is whisked away on a terrifying and unexpected trip! Left a wanderer with an empty heart, his search to find its elfin-spirit once again plunges him into the worlds of Half-Elves, Wise-Arks, Men and Goblins, Trolls and Ogres, and more fantastical adventures than he ever dreamed... -- -- Muz Murray, a world-travelling adventurer, is a practised story­teller, a surrealist artist and illu­strator, having been a Scenic Artist & Costume Designer and actor in theatre and film, stuntman and singer, zoo-keeper, elephant trainer, art teacher, deckhand, Night-club singer and many other weird and wonderful occupations, whilst hitch-hiking halfway round the world (being shot at by bandits, surviving knife attacks, hold-ups, poisoned darts and earthquakes in Africa) crossing deserts, living with Dervishes in Turkey and Iran and Yogis in India, As a mystic, he now teaches in Yoga Centres around the world.

Editorial Reviews

"Ifflepinn Island is one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure to read and own. I cannot put into words what an exciting and exhilarating story this is. The whole thing is unique from start to finish, you will not be disappointed. i find it hard to believe that this amazing work hasn't yet been made into an epic film although I'm sure it will be given time, as it's that good. I would recommend you read this book whether you are an adult or not; it matters not as it will enthral you all. This really is a must have book. Get it while you can."-Thomas Field. "Ifflepinn Island is a joy; heart-warming, exciting, page turning, thought provoking, believable and lovable. You can't wait to find out what the next chapter will have in store, but at the same time you don't want it to end-fabulous!" -Karina Stewart . "I would class it in the genre of 'Moomintroll meets the Hobbit, somewhere way beyond the far side of Narnia'. I love the unique style of the writing!" -Hannah Greenwood.
