Description

`Time to find out if you are a magician, Gwyn'


Gwyn's grandmother leaves him five gifts: a brooch, a piece of dried seaweed, a tin whistle, a scarf, and a broken toy horse. She tells him they will help make him a magician - but can Gwyn use them to bring his missing sister, Bethan, home?


The Snow Spider won the 1986 Smarties Grand Prix and it was awarded the Tir na n-Og Award in 1987. This edition celebrates its 30th anniversary of first publication.


Fantastic reading for Harry Potter fans from the author of Charlie Bone. Children who loved Moondial and Tom's Midnight Garden will relish this book. Perfect for readers aged 8 years and up.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. She was six when she went to boarding school and reading was a wonderful escape, it allowed her to believe that she was somewhere else. She begn to write her own stories when she was ten. She cannot help using magic in her work because myths legends and fairy-tales were her favourite reading as a child, and they have remained at the back of her mind ever since.


In 1986 her book `The Snow Spider' won the Smarties Grand Prix and, in 1987, was awarded the Tir na n'Og by the Welsh Arts Council. `The Rinaldi Ring' was chosen as Guardian Book of the Week, and was shortlisted for the Carnegie medal, for which she received a commendation.Five of Jenny's eight books about Charlie Bone in `The Children of the Red King' series were on the New York Times bestseller list, and she has now completed `The Secret Kingdom Trilogy' a prequel to the Charlie Bone Books..
