September 2016 Debut of the Month | In a nutshell: discover a secret fairy world under Hyde Park |
London’s parks are the starting point for this lively story of adventure and enchantment. Rowan’s mother disappeared suddenly seven years ago and life has been difficult ever since. Giving in to tears under a great beech in Hyde Park, one of her mother’s favourite places, Rowan is magically transformed into a fairy. As in Peter Pan, the fairy world is both inviting and unnerving, and when it emerges that she has particular powers it becomes a place of real danger for Rowan despite the friends she makes. A quest, a story of transformation and lost things found, this is an appealing mix of excitement, humour and magic. ~ Andrea Reece

Rowan Oakwing A London Fairy Tale by E. J. Clarke
Being a fairy is a lot more dangerous than you think ...
There's a strange magic to London's parks. When the sun sets and the gates are closed, tiny winged creatures come to life. The only way to meet them is to become one. And if you become one, there's no way back.
Rowan cries herself to sleep in Hyde Park and wakes up ten centimetres tall, with tiny oak-leaf wings. She's about to go on an adventure in the hidden world of fairies and foxes. But Rowan's quest will be perilous, with fearsome enemies at her heels. If she wants to get home, she'll need to find the courage she never knew she had, and discover powers she'd never even imagined ...
Utterly fresh but very much classic ... a modern Peter Pan. -- Irena Brignull, author of The Hawkweed Prophecy
