The Lovereading4Kids comment

Madcap extraordinary adventure of the highest order from BAFTA award winner Alex Williams, a far-from ordinary new talent in children’s books. This is his second novel. The first, The Talent Thief, was exceedingly well received. Packed with hair-raising adventures involving Madeleine and Rufus Breeze who come from a long line of fanmakers. Rest assured the readers imagination will be taken on a white-knuckle ride of fantabulous proportions.

Synopsis

Storm Maker by Alex Williams

Madeline and Rufus Breeze come from a long line of fantabulous fanmakers – they’ve been keeping people cool in style for centuries. And their eccentric inventor father has stubbornly continued the tradition . . . even though their village has been covered in snow for several years. Now the Breeze family is so in debt, local tyrant Bartholomew Tullock is threatening to take their home. Then a smooth-tongued stranger and his blue-haired dog arrive in town with a solution to the Breezes’ problem. Soon determined Madeline and her father are off on a death-defying journey to sell their breathtaking and breeze-making fans to the residents of the one nearby city that is (strangely) still hot. If only they didn’t have to face a mini-cyclone, stolen fans, enemy spies, eclectic elements and desert dunes hotter than an oven to get there . . . And in their absence it’s up to Rufus to keep his mother and their house safe from greedy Tullock and his nightmarish skeletal sidekick, Scratskin.

About the Author

Alex Williams

Alex Williams was introduced to adventure at the grand age of two months
when his delightfully mad family decided to move from stately London to the wilds of Cornwall.

Making short fantasy films at art college and winning the 'film most suitable for theatrical release' award at the 1991 Fuji Scholarship Awards paved the way to writing scripts for TV which led, in 2003, to a children's best writer BAFTA for the acclaimed TV series 'Sir Gadbout: The Worst Knight in the Land'. Recently Alex has turned his attentions to children's literature, penning books set in worlds much like our own but with curious creatures, gleaming machines, unlikely heroes and chilling twists and turns.
