Synopsis

The Secret Kingdom by Jenny Nimmo

Gabar wheeled around to see a crowd of thin green creatures creeping towards him. Their wet hair dangled, their red eyes flashed and their long arms swung like slimy vines. 'Camel,' said one. 'Let us take your heavy burdens.' Gabar raised his head and bellowed. But root-like fingers were now reaching for the bag that contained the moon cloak. Timoken has to flee his secret forest kingdom after it is attacked by sneaky, shape-shifting viridees. Protected from birth by a magical moon spider web, he travels with his camel, Gabar, seeking a new kingdom - a new home. Timoken also has magic himself. He can conjure rain from the air, talk to animals and fly high in the air. And when he saves three leopard cubs from a hunter, they become enchanted too, and sworn to protect him. But the powerful, slimy green viridees are always just a breath behind him. They want the moon spider's web. And they will do anything to get it...

About the Author

Jenny Nimmo

Jenny Nimmo lives in a converted watermill in Wales. Her husband, David Wynn Millward, is a painter and print-maker, and all three of her children speak Welsh fluently. She finds Wales, a land of legends, a very inspiring place to live.

For as long as she can remember, Jenny has loved books. At boarding school, reading was her way to overcome loneliness or boredom. However, she is aware that not everyone finds reading comes easily, and feels passionately that every child should have all the help they need, and access to as many books as they want.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
