Description

'A wonderful whirlwind of magic and adventure, and every bit as enchanting as the original Peter Pan. I absolutely loved it!' Catherine Doyle

Number 14 Darlington Road, looks like a perfectly ordinary townhouse - at first glance, anyway, but magic is good at hiding . . . when it's waiting for the right person to discover it . . .

Martha Pennydrop is ten, and desperate to grow up. But growing up is a tricky business. It means turning your back on imagination, fun and magic, because those were the things that led to the Terrible Day when something awful nearly happened to Martha's younger brother, Scruff, which would have been All Her Fault.

But when Martha and Scruff discover a drawer full of mysterious gold dust in the bedroom of their new house - along with a window that's seemingly impossible to close - it's the start of an incredible adventure to a magical world: Neverland!

The Pennydrop's new house used to belong to another family - the Darlings - who once visited this world themselves. Now Peter Pan is back, and in need of their help. Neverland is in the icy grip of a terrible curse - cast long ago by Captain Hook. And only Martha and Scruff can save it . . .

A reluctant Martha and excited Scruff are swept off to Neverland and into the company of the Lost Kids. But when Scruff is kidnapped, Martha must rediscover all the imagination, magic and belief she has buried deep inside herself for so long, to save him - and Neverland itself.

About the Author

Abi Elphinstone grew up in Scotland where she spent most of her childhood running wild across the moors, hiding in tree houses and building dens in the woods. After being coaxed out of her tree house, she studied English at Bristol University and then worked as an English teacher in Africa, Berkshire and London.

She is the bestselling and multi-award shortlisted author of Rumblestar (first in The Unmapped Chronicles), Sky Song, & The Dreamsnatcher trilogy, published by S&S. When she's not writing, Abi volunteers for Beanstalk, speaks in schools and travels the world looking for her next story.

- Catherine Doyle, bestselling author of The Storm Keeper's Island

'Abi Elphinstone's imagination is as colourful and enticing as a sweetshop. In reimagining Peter Pan, she blows fairy dust over the classic tale and makes it fly . . . the perfect bedtime story for children of all ages.'
- M.G Leonard

'For fans of Peter Pan dreams really do come true in this magical sequel. Saving Neverland soars with Joy'
- Piers Torday

'An awfully big new adventure in Neverland that's icy, dicey, delightful and dazzling in equal measure!'
- Peter Bunzl

'Having written the sequel to a much loved book myself, I totally understand how exciting yet nerve wracking it is - and such a responsibility!- to tackle a story so many people know. And Abi Elphinstone was the perfect choice to write this adventure- it's full of Abi's trademark wit, wonder & high-stakes action and has the most brilliant cast of characters. Martha is a superb reluctant hero and Peter, the boy who lives for adventures, is quite a complicated individual! It honestly felt like reading a true classic. I think it might be Abi's best book yet.'
- Emma Carroll

'Saving Neverland is a return to Neverland for our times. It is daring, funny, joyful - everything we know and love about Abi Elphinstone'
- Maz Evans

'Elphinstone's reimaginig of J.M Barrie's classic is thrilling, imaginative and brilliantly reinterpreted for a modern audience, and features a young heroine who learns how to shake off the weight of the world and have an adventure.'
- Charlotte Eyre, The Bookseller
