Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Readers who have followed Dido Twite' s escapades in BLACK HEARTS IN BATTERSEA and NIGHTBIRDS ON NANTUCKET will welcome her return in her wildest adventure yet.

Now back in print, THE CUCKOO TREE and THE STOLEN LAKE continue the Wolves Chronicles, the exhilarating and imaginative series that stemmed from Joan Aiken' s classic THE WOLVES OF WILLOUGHBY CHASE.

A dazzling piece of dramatic, snowballing adventure, THE STOLEN LAKE is full of fantastical details: revolving palaces, witches who are also court dressmakers, an apocalyptic volcanic eruption, and an infernal country with a noticeable lack of female children. On her way back to London aboard the British man-of-war Thrush, twelve-year-old Dido Twite finds herself and the crew summoned to the aid of the tyrannical queen of New Cumbria. A neighboring king has stolen the queen' s lake and is holding it for ransom, and it' s up to Dido and the crew to face fire, flood, execution, and wild beasts to get the lake back — or else.

Synopsis:

Dido Twite is in American New Cumbria on her wildest adventure yet. Part of a set of reissued titles. Readership level: 9-11yrs.
