There May Be a Castle

Life, death and a snowy quest in a world of monsters, knights and wizards. Yup – it’s the new Narnia! One frozen Christmas Eve, Mouse Mallory and his family set off across a snowy valley to visit his grandparents. They never arrive. As the wheels skid off the icy road, Mouse is thrown from the car. He wakes up in a magical landscape, with a chatty sheep and a bossy horse for company. So begins Mouse’s bizarre quest through a world of monsters, minstrels, knights and wizards. A world of terror and wonder. All on a mission to find a castle somewhere, far beyond. But what is this castle – and why is Mouse travelling there?
