Synopsis

Storyteller's Secrets by Tony Mitton

When twins Toby and Tess meet a mysterious old traveller, they're fascinated by his magical tales of far-off places, strange enchantments and unbelievable miracles. Each time he visits the village he brings them a new tale and a special story-reminder from the bundle that he carries on his back. Most intriguing of all is the 'Map of Marvels', which shimmers and shifts and invites the children to make incredible journeys of their own.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
