Synopsis: A novel with echoes of timeless classics such as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Borrowers, and Alice in Wonderland, Garry Kilworth's Attica reveals a twilight world of forgotten wonders, and extraordinary adventures—all happening just above our heads. Join Jordy, Alex, and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful other place, accessible for just a moment in time through the trap-door of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests, to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises—and that's before they meet the inhabitants: strange clans of small and lumpen people who live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and—somehow—find a way back home. A story of courage, loyalty and friendship; of Browsers, Shadow-Tangles and Tatterdermalions; of incredible landscapes, ingenious devices, and cunning plot twists, Attica has a richness and depth that will delight readers of all ages.
