Fourth in the
modern-classic and bestselling bookwandering series for ages eight to
twelve that celebrates all that is best in life: books, adventure,
friendship – and cake.
Milo lives on board the
Sesquipedalian, or “Quip” – a magical train that uses the power of
imagination to travel through both Story and the real world. The train
is owned by Milo’s uncle, Horatio, and Milo has witnessed many of his
uncle’s dodgy dealings as a book smuggler trading in rare books.
Horatio takes on a dangerous new job, he needs the help of Tilly Pages.
And Tilly owes Horatio a favour. But when poisoned copies of The Wizard of Oz
are sent to Horatio and Tilly's grandfather, sending them both into
deep sleeps, Milo and Tilly find themselves racing against time to save
them – and to figure out what is going on.
Their journey takes
them to the Emerald City with Dorothy, rocketing on the unruly Quip, and
eventually to Venice in Italy, in pursuit of the mysterious Alchemist.
The very essence of imagination, story itself, may be in danger . . .
