What do you get when you cross a grandpa who loves jokes, twins who have vivid imaginations and a dusty old fold out bed?
The Land of Roar by Jenny McLachlan of course!
Meet the twins, Arthur and Rose who until fairly recently loved playing together and creating magical worlds. But now Rose is more interested in the older girl next door and wants nothing to do with Arthur, who still seeks out magical play, imagination and much more fun than just talking on the trampoline.
But things change when Grandad asks them to clean out the attic and a fold out bed that they had forgotten about appears and Grandad – disappears.
Determined to find him, Arthur needs to remember what he can about the fold out bed – and the world that is within!
You’ll fly high with a once in a lifetime friend named Win, swim with a blue haired girl called Mitch and try to escape the most feared of all – Crowky.
Not only will you escape with Arthur and Rose to find Grandad, you’ll also love the wicked sense of humour scattered throughout the story, engaging the most reluctant of readers and entwining magical lands, fun and adventure.
The Land of Roar is reminiscent of Peter Pan, Jumanji and The never-ending story – all of the favourites wrapped up within one story.
Children 8 and up will love reading this book and looking at the accompanying illustrations and maps.
