Description

Stig is eager to test out his Spiral Drive, a power unit built for his clockwork plane. He's so eager that he ignores his fellow inventor's words of warning. It's a decision that changes his life and tests whether he has enough fortitude and skill to survive.



Stephan von Clinkerhoffen's City of Chelldrah-ham: Stig's Flight of Encounters takes readers on a journey to Chelldrah-ham, the city of riches Stig calls home. They travel with him to strange and beautiful lands as his test flight goes astray and crashes into a wooden pod on a mission.



Stig's trip back home isn't going to be that easy. Soon he discovers bat-like creatures called the Bach that threaten the pod's homeland. He escapes the encounter but will have plenty more to face.



Stig must rely on what he finds in nature and the help of new friends like Meg, whom he meets on his trek. He's got his clockwork skills and a map that his father had given him. But is that enough to help him get back home?

About Stephan Von Clinkerhoffen

Stephan von Clinkerhoffen grew up close to the English Cotswolds, surrounded by nature and the region's rich history. An engineer for twenty-five years, he spent ten years in the British aerospace industry.

An artist for the last thirty years, von Clinkerhoffen has returned to England, where he rediscovered his love of local history and the English countryside.



He has received praise and numerous awards for his writing from Literary Classics, Kirkus Reviews, Readers' Favorite, and ForeWord Clarion.
