Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ben wants a Mongolian Fighting Fish more than anything. But when he goes to Mr. Dodds's Pet Emporium with his hard-earned savings, he buys a cat instead. He doesn't have a choice, really. The cat insists.

Iggy (as the tabby likes to be called) has been kidnapped from his home, a parallel world known as the Secret Country. And as the two soon discover, Iggy is not the only animal to fall victim to the pet-store owner's devious scheme: Mr. Dodds is stealing the Secret Country's magical creatures and selling them to England's rich and curious. Being away from their homeland causes the creatures with any connection to the Secret Country to be under immediate threat. What's more, it seems Ben's mother is their long-lost queen.

With his mother's life hanging in the balance, it's up to Ben to play his part in an ancient prophecy and prove he's worthy of the title of Prince of Eidolon.

Review:

"In The Secret Country, Jane Johnson introduces us to a whole new world of enchantments, filled with amazing characters and outlandish situations, all brought together with a welcome warmth and wit, and presented in Jane's elegant, effortless prose. It's a marvelous start to what promises to be a wonderfully off-beat and original series." Clive Barker

Review:

"Reminiscent of C. S. Lewis's Narnia Stories." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

This first installment of "a wonderfully offbeat and original series" (Clive Barker) introduces Ben Arnold, who learns his new pet — a talking cat — has been kidnapped from his home in the magical realm of Eidolon, in a devious magical-creature-trafficking scheme.
