Created by a husband and wife duo — acclaimed fantasy artist Rodney Matthews and writer Sarah Matthews — Oddney's Otherland is a madcap magical mystery that kicks off when retired naturalist Professor Oddney discovers a strange secret realm at the end of a tunnel beneath his shed.

Accompanied by his trusty sidekick, Magnus the talking magpie, Oddney enters Otherland and embarks on a quest to find The Two-Headed Firedrake — a seemingly impossible task, given that the firedrake is said to reside on “a volcanic island surrounded by a lake full of ferocious fiends”.

Presented as a fancy large-format hardback, each page is resplendent with a detailed illustrative style that melds Arthur Rackham with high fantasy, while the story is driven by Oddney’s quest and characterful dialogue that lends itself well to reading aloud. Quirkily comic, there definitely be dragons in Oddney's Otherland, alongside a whole of lot high jinks adventure and themes of friendship, to boot.

Oddney's Otherland is available to buy at adventurematthews.com/collections/oddneys-otherland in a stunning hardback edition. A perfect gift for fans of fantasy fiction.
