The Eye of the North
‘The Eye of the North‘ leaves the reader little time to finish their toast before being rushed, like Emmeline, onto a liner of danger and adventure. Emmeline doesn’t understand the letter left to her by her parents, presuming them dead. However, en route to the mysterious Madame Blancheflour in Paris, she learns very quickly, that she is a target. What’s more, she is not alone, there is a Thing to help. This is a seat of your pants, lyrical, whirling adventure story with its foundations in the world of classics. We recommend ‘The Eye of the North‘ to daring, dreaming readers, aged from 9 or 10 years.
