2017 Literary Classics - Gold Medal Award: Best Series - High School
Fast paced with lovable characters woven into an intricate fantasy adventure for younger readers. Stig and Meg pass through an inter-dimensional rift from their fantasy world to 21st century England. The young couple are startled by what they find. In this science fiction & fantasy novel a series of clues take the pair around the Cotswolds in England where they discover all is not what it seems. They meet eccentrics, simpletons and often laugh out loud characters, finding some more willing than others to help them. Their quest is to save their world from the actions of an evil human who wants to destroy all life there and bring its gold and riches to Earth for personal gain. Action packed with real life places and scenes but viewed by "out of this world" characters looking in. The humorous nuances of this story will appeal to older readers too.
