Summary

Summary

Join Jordy, Alex, and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful place, accessible for just a moment through the trapdoor 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. The strange clans of small, lumpen people 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 incredible landscapes, ingenious devices, and cunning plot twists; Attica has a richness and depth that will delight listeners of all ages.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An excellent book, good and original and, in all the best ways, strange.” Neil Gaiman, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Kilworth more than delivers on the premise in his innovative fantasy adventure…Kilworth doesn’t skimp on his characterization or story, either. The children have distinct personalities and react to Attica in realistic ways, finding their own strengths in this exhilarating, unpredictable environment. This book is a rare find.” Booklist (starred review)
“This book is reminiscent of Narnia with its alternative, magical world. A fantastic read that will have imaginations working overtime.” The Bookseller
