Description

A spell-binding adventure of magical fantasy from the author of Charlie Bone, Jenny Nimmo. Timoken, the lost king of a secret kingdom that was destroyed by wicked viridees, believes he has found a new home in a castle in medieval Britain. But when an evil steward takes control of the castle, he imprisons Timoken and wreaks havoc on surrounding villages. With the help of Gabar the talking camel, a mysterious wizard and a friendly dragon, Timoken escapes and embarks on a journey to find and rescue his friends - and build himself a kingdom to call home for good. Combining all of Jenny Nimmo's trademark elements - unusual but compelling characters, stunning magic and a rich, vibrant story - The Secret Kingdom is perfect for lovers of Charlie Bone and fantasy books.

About Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live. For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. She feels passionately that every child should have access to as many books as they want. Jenny enjoys writing about magic because it is inexplicable and unpredictable, and anything can happen. In 1986 her book, The Snow Spider, won the Smarties Grand Prix, and in 1987 it 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 and received a commendation. Her series of Charlie Bone books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies and are much-loved. www.charlie-bone.com
