The Shadow Moth by Francesca Gibbons

With all the magic of Narnia and the humour of Mary Poppins, this is a future middle grade fantasy classic – and the beginning of an unforgettable journey…

Imogen should be nice to her little sister Marie.  She should be nice to her mum’s boyfriend too.  And she certainly shouldn’t follow a strange silver moth through a door in a tree.

But then… who does what they’re told?

Followed by Marie, Imogen finds herself falling into a magical kingdom where the two sisters are swept up in a thrilling race against time – helped by the spoiled prince of the kingdom, a dancing bear, a very grumpy hunter and even the stars above…

Thrilling, sharply funny, and with characters you will fall in love with, A Clock of Stars is a timeless fantasy from an astonishing new voice.

Peer & Press Reviews

A Clock of Stars: The Shadow Moth fluttered straight into my heart.  Sometimes you pick up a book and know – from the very first pages – that you’re reading an instant classic.  This is one of those books.  Prepare to be spellbound.

Carlie Sorosiak, author of I, Cosmo

An utterly wonderful, timeless magical adventure packed with all the best things about children’s fiction.

Anna James, author of Pages & Co.
