Description

Tom is determined to rescue his father, Jack the Giant-Killer, from the clutches of the dastardly Ormestone. But to do so he will have to venture into the most dangerous territory of all-the Land of Myths and Legends. Tom is brave and true, but can he overcome such terrors as the ferocious Norse dragon, an angry Cyclops and-worst of all-the hungry Minotaur waiting in the centre of the labyrinth? Join Tom in his third epic adventure as he faces dangers and creatures galore in the land of Myths and Legends.show more

Review quote

Praise for The Secret History of Tom Trueheart, Boy Adventurer: 'Ian Beck's prose has a crisp and springy rhythm. His illustrations, gnarled silhouettes, are marvellously complex. If you turn them upside down, they change completely. A volume to treasure.' Telegraph 'a delightful book, and one with a wide potential audience ... a story with a timeless quality and great charm for bedtime reading upwards.' Marcus Sedgwick, Literary Review Praise for Tom Trueheart and the Land of Dark Stories: 'a pleasure to hold, read aloud and explore' Amanda Craig, The Times 'the makings of a modern classic. The book is beautifully produced and the story itself has everything: pace, humour, a likeable hero and just the right amount of excitement to keep you turning the pages.' School Librarianshow more
