Gillian Cross is one of the UK's top children's authors, and has won every major children's book prize. She is highly acclaimed internationally.
In "The Dark Ground", Robert is alone, in a strange jungle. He has no food, no shelter, no warmth. Unfamiliar creatures are roaming about - and he's not even sure how he got there...
Following the story of Robert's struggle for survival, through to his extraordinary realization of where he is and what has happened to him and then to his perilous journey to find his way home.
This is such an unusual adventure/fantasy story, it is gripping right from the start and you will not want to put it down until you have finished.
Although it gradually dawned on me what had happened to Robert, it was still so surprising and written with such imagination, that I couldn't wait to read book 2 in this trilogy "The Black Room" to find out what happened next.
This is a FINE-AS NEW copy of the book, is signed by the author and features the desirable and highly unusual holographic cover.
