The sequel to Guardians of Magic, Tiggy Thistle and the Lost Guardians is a thrilling, magical adventure from Chris Riddell, creator of Goth Girl and Ottoline. With two-colour illustrations throughout, this hardback edition is the perfect gift for readers of seven to eleven.

Zam, Phoebe and Bathsheba: the three Guardians of Magic, they disappeared with no warning nearly ten years ago. Without them, the Kingdom of Thrynne fell to the icy grip of a powerful sorceress and most people have fled in desperate search of warmer lands, escaping the snow monsters that roam the streets . . .

Meanwhile, nine-year-old Tiggy Thistle lives hidden and safe with a kindly Badger – until the day she meets the elf Crumple Stiltskin, one of the crafty Stiltskin brothers, and suddenly she must run from her happy home.

So begins Tiggy's quest to find Zam, Phoebe and Bathsheba – the lost guardians – and their beautiful cloud horses. The only people, she believes, who can save the kingdom from the curse of endless winter . . .

Tiggy Thistle and the Lost Guardians is the second and final title in The Cloud Horse Chronicles.

Sumptuously presented in a foiled dust jacket, this is the perfect gift for all adventure-seekers and fantasy fans!'
Riddell’s characteristic wit and humour shine through
An absorbing, original and supremely entertaining read
