All aboard for the rip-roaring second journey in the bestselling Train to Impossible Places Adventures, with magic at every stop.

From the award-winning P.G. Bell, with dazzling illustrations from Flavia Sorrentino, join Suzy on this magical adventure, where the journey will never, ever take you where you expect it to.

Suzy can't believe her luck when a secret invitation magically appears - the Impossible Postal Express is ready to ride again! But the celebrations don't last long when Trollville is hit by a terrible tremor, putting everyone in danger. With the city in peril, a race against time begins from the magical Cloud Forge to the Uncanny Valley to catch the villain behind this dastardly plan. Will the Impossible Postal Express help Suzy get some answers?

A pacy, gutsy, creative and dramatic story with delightful depth. * Teach Primary * Bell's imagination takes full flight again for this second helping of extraordinary, exhilarating and inventive adventure. * Lancashire Post * Full of treasure, quirky magic, new characters... For every child who's dreamed of being whisked off on an adventure. * South Wales Evening Post * The second book in a series of fantasy adventures, this fun story is set in a world that defies the laws of gravity - and most other laws of physics, too! * BookTrust * Imagination abounds in this troll-centric series and this sequel delivers in fun adventure just as the first book did. * WRD About Books *
