Escape the Rooms (the laugh-out-loud funny and mind-blowingly brilliant new book for kids!) Synopsis

The last thing Jack expected when he bungee-jumped at the fairground was to go plummeting right through the ground into the weird, wonderful Rooms...

There he must face a series of puzzles and traps alongside a mysterious girl called Cally, in order for them to find their way home.

Throw in a murderous polar bear, hundreds of tiny yet ferocious lions, some mind-blowing riddles, and get ready for a hilarious, helter-skelter adventure like no other!

  • Escape the Rooms follows two children dealing with loss on an amazing adventure.
  • Wildly funny and endlessly surprising, Escape the Rooms is also a story about friendship, overcoming fears and being kind to yourself.
  • Packed with fantastic pictures created by Stephen Mangan's sister, Anita

Escape the Rooms (the laugh-out-loud funny and mind-blowingly brilliant new book for kids!) Press Reviews

A high-energy, laugh-out-loud, fully illustrated adventure story by much-loved actor Stephen Mangan and talented artist Anita Mangan.

[Escape the Rooms] is richly imagined and deeply heartfelt, and Anita Mangan's cartoonish and poignant illustrations capture the tone perfectly ... It reminded me a little of The Wizard of Oz, with the children on a quest through different lands to get home. Hadley Freeman, Guardian

It's been described as a cross between Alice in Wonderland and The Crystal Maze and it manages to feel both classic and modern at the same time. Good Housekeeping
