Adventure stories (Children's / Teenage)

"A sumptuously imagined children's debut" The Telegraph

"A fast paced; single minded adventure. Female bravery is a given" The Observer

When Art's mother is accused of witchcraft and captured, she is determined to get her back - at any cost. A lyrical adventure with folklore at its heart, for fans of THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS.

Twelve-year-old Art lives in a small village in Scotland. Her mother has always made potions that cure the sick, but now the townspeople say she is a witch. One cloudless night, Art's mother is arrested and taken to England.

Art mounts her horse, taking a sword, a tightrope, and a herbal recipe book, and begins a journey through wild forests, using nature's signs and symbols to guide her.

But will she spot the signs from the omens? Will she reach her mother, before it's too late?

'A wonderful book' - Piers Torday
'Very exciting' - Anthony McGowan
'Thrilling and uplifting' - Frank Cottrell-Boyce
'Gripping. I raced through it' - A.M. Howell
