Age 10+. What an absolutely brilliant, extraordinary and wildly inventive fantasy adventure. Published in hardback in 2007 to huge acclaim, this will be devoured for everything ordinary in London becomes extraordinary here in Un lun dun. Fast-paced, bizarre, funny but scary, it’s just what Harry Potter fans have been looking for only it’s much better written. Highly topical too for it has an underlying eco theme for London is under siege from the smog.

Reviews

Mieville's compelling heroine and her fantastical journey through the labyrinth of a strange London forms that rare book that feels instantly like a classic and yet is thoroughly modern. -- Holly Black, bestselling author of the YA novels TITHE and VALIANT A book which shows the world as it truly is: full of marvels and monsters and unexpected opportunities for heroism and magic. UN LUN DUN is delicious, twisty, ferocious fun, a book so crammed with inventions, delights, and unexpected turns that you will want to start reading it over again as soon as you've reached the end. -- Kelly Link, author of STRANGER THINGS HAPPEN and MAGIC FOR BEGINNERS From the Hardcover edition.
