Lissa Evans - Author

About the Author

Lissa Evans still remembers cracking her first joke, age 7. It involved a hippo. (We’ll say no more.) But the comedy bug was born and, following a medicine degree, Lissa changed careers to become a comedy producer for radio and TV. Eventually, after a decade of running a red pencil through other people’s work, Lissa began to write something of her own. This is Lissa Evans' third book for children. Her first, Small Change for Stuart (published in the USA as Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms), was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and the Costa Children’s Book Award. She has also written books for adults.  She has two teenage daughters, and lives in London.

Author: Lissa Evans Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 06/06/2019

Stuart Horten, ten years old and small for his age, is about to have the strangest ADVENTURE of his life. After moving to the boring town of Beeton, he finds himself swept up in an INCREDIBLE QUEST to find his great-uncle's lost legacy: a magician's workshop stuffed with trickery and MAGIC. There are clues to follow, unbearable neighbours to avoid and PUZZLES to solve, but what starts as FUN ends up as DANGER, and Stuart begins to realise that he can't finish the task on his own...

Big Change for Stuart

Author: Lissa Evans Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/05/2013

Stuart Horten (ten, but looks younger) is now the owner of a magician's workshop - except that without his Great-Uncle's Last Will and Testament, he can't actually prove it. Which is a problem, since someone else wants it as well; someone who has a lot of money. The workshop contains seven magnificent stage illusions, but when Stuart starts to investigate them, he discovers that each is the gateway to a magical adventure, with a puzzle to solve, and a clue to extract. As the clues mount up, the adventures become riskier. Friendship is strained, danger looms, and Stuart has to decide what sort of prize he really, truly wants.
