The Key to the Half Worlds

Andrew Chaplin's debut children's novel, The Key to the Half Worlds, is published by The Book Guild at £8.99.

It tells the exciting story of Richard Cranfield, a rather ordinary boy of 13, who suddenly finds himself launched into another, utterly alien, but strangely familiar, world by way of the school bus.

He is fortunate as he has an equally youthful companion with him on this extraordinary journey, his best friend Tom.

They realise that they are in an alternative reality, an Earth where magic is real and where all sorts of amazing and mythological creatures and beings actually live and breathe, side by side, as it were.

Sorcerers practiced their sorcery, and dragons and elves were commonplace and, in effect, ordinary living creatures.

Richard and Tom are amazed at first, but then they realise how dangerous and frightening this alternative version of their world really could be.

They meet a young female elf and assisted by a wizardly elf the boys become embroiled in a desperate plot to stop a wicked sorcerer elf from bringing the two realities together as a part of her campaign to dominate everything and everyone.

Could the boys help be the key to thwarting this evil design to bring about domination?

Would they save both versions of the world?

Would they be able to return home?

This book is published by The Book Guild at £8.99 and will make a superb Chirstmas present for any child who likes a touch of magic in their reading material. It'll also be great fun for parents, grandparents and older siblings, too!

It is available for purchase from our very own book and gift shop which you will find here >>>
