The Secret of Platform 13
Magic is afoot at King’s Cross Station in the glorious classic fantasy that got there before the Hogwarts Express! Under Platform 13 at King’s Cross is a secret door that leads to a magical island. The door appears only once every nine years. And this time when it opens, four mysterious figures step out into London’s busy streets. A wizard, an ogre, a fey and a young hag have come to find the prince of their kingdom, stolen as a baby nine years before. But the prince has become a horrible rich boy called Raymond Trottle, who doesn’t believe in magic and refuses to be rescued. How will they bring him home? Perhaps you’d like to go in his place?
