Back cover copy

IT BEGAN THE DAY GRANDPA ESCAPED... Something very odd has happened to Colin and Sarah's much-loved grandfather. It's as if a stranger is inhabiting his body... as if Grandpa has been spirited away and a changeling left in his place. Raised all their lives on his tales of great heroes and fantastical legendary creatures, Colin and Sarah feel sure that the Faer Folk are involved. In an attempt to find him again, they follow Grandpa's path, crossing the boundary between the everyday world and the enchantments of the Otherworld... A wonderfully lyrical fantasy adventure brimming with characters from the Otherworld - from magnificent horses to mischievous night-elves and the legendary Sidhe.show more
