A magical tourist, a bog beast, two hags and some very mixed-up seasons . . . it all adds up to a truly original magical adventure.
Neil and Lizzie's Dad is a Weatherman. But not the boring kind that you see on TV. He's one of the people who make sure that the Seasons change every year.
But this year the Autumn hasn't arrived. Who is stopping it. Why? And can Neil and Lizzie help their father bring in the Autumn before it's too late?
This is a rich, magical fantasy adventure from a talented debut author - a story that readers are sure to fall in love with.
