The Hidden Kingdom by Ian Beck
A pampered prince who has to give up everything he has ever known. A warrior-like girl who has promised to carry out her duty at any cost. An obedient young servant with a mission to complete and an icy chill in his heart. As ancient demons rise around them and conspire to destroy their world, only these three people can defeat the evil which threatens to engulf them. But to do so they must first find a way to survive in the bitter, snowy lands where they are banished, and discover how to work together despite their differences.

'Between the stunning covers of this remarkable book throbs an ancient tale of evil, legend, love, duty and warring forces that quite takes one’s breath away.' - The Daily Mail
Praise for The Secret History of Tom Trueheart:
'Ian Beck's prose has a crisp and springy rhythm. His illustrations, gnarled silhouettes, are marvellously complex. If you turn them upside down, they change completely. A volume to treasure.' Telegraph
'A delightful book, and one with a wide potential audience ... a story with a timeless quality and great charm for bedtime reading upwards.' Marcus Sedgwick, Literary Review
Praise for Tom Trueheart in the Land of Dark Stories:
'A pleasure to hold, read aloud and explore' - Amanda Craig
'The makings of a modern classic. The book is beautifully produced and the story itself has everything: pace, humour, a likeable hero and just the right amount of excitement to keep you turning the pages.' - School Librarian
