Description

When Connor starts creating a map of an imaginary world for his school project he has no idea where it will lead. As he draws the outlines of the islands and the mountains, the map begins to take shape. And then there's the tower-ominous and threatening - but so necessary that without it the map would not be complete. Perhaps without the tower, the map might not even exist. But the map does exist, and so does the tower. As Connor enters the world he's created he meets others there who all have their own tale to tell. Together they travel between many worlds, on many adventures and through many stories. On their journey they encounter places and creatures beyond Connor's imagination. But he has imagined them, hasn't he? Surely this world can't be real, because if it is, his life at home must just be another story ...

Review quote

[Praise for David Calcutt's Shadow Bringer]: A haunting and powerful psychological thriller ... With beautifully drawn characters and a real sense of brooding menace, the author has succeeded in blending reality with magic Lovereading4kids.co.uk It's beautifully written and will appeal particularly to fans of David Almond. Jill Murphy, The Bookbag [Praise for David Calcutt's Crowboy]: incredibly powerful and moving Birmingham Post This is a stunning book, daring, brilliantly written and 'staged' ... If it doesn't win prizes, there's something badly wrong with the literary world. Yahya Arrassi, Waterstones.com
