Synopsis

The Eyes of Doctor Dee by Maggie Pearson

It's 1581 and Barnabas and Temperance make their way to London in search of Temperance's lost love. But quickly, they call into a sinister world of poltergeists, spies, lynch mobs, and even a plot to kill Queen Elizabeth I. Above all else, they meet Doctor John Dee, who remains one of the most intriguing characters from Tudor times - a strange mixture of serious scientist and dabbler in the paranormal. As Maggie Pearson says, 'Nobody in Elizabethan England knew the difference between astronomy and astrology or chemistry and alchemy. Or even between mathematics and magic.' His sole quest seems to have been trying to understand how the world worked, but he soon got side-tracked into magic ...

About the Author

Whilst her three children were growing up, Maggie Pearson held a variety of jobs - including bar maid, librarian and freelance journalist - but she now pursues a career as a highly-successful children's writer. Her first novel, Owl-Light, was shortlisted for the WH Smith Mind-boggling Book Award. She lives mostly in a sixteenth-century cottage in Suffolk with her husband, two cats and a goat, and sometimes in the French Pyrenees. She spent years compiling this extraordinary collection of folk tales as a labour of love. She has also written A Slip in Time and The Eyes of Doctor Dee for the Victorian Flashbacks series, Is There Anybody There? for the Wired Up series, and the folk tale collection The House of the Cats.
