Daisy Thistledown's magical adventure continues in The City Beyond the Sea, the spellbinding sequel to Blackwell's Children's Book of the Year, Greenwild: The World Behind the Door by Pari Thomson.

Across the ocean, a magical adventure awaits . . .

Daisy Thistledown and the Five O'Clock Club have defeated a terrifying foe, but their journey to find the missing Botanists is only just beginning.

Smuggling on board the long-awaited expedition to the heart of the Amazon, Daisy and her friends find themselves in danger on the high seas, pursued across the waves by Grim Reapers. Their only hope: to find the legendary Iffenwild, a mysterious magical pocket lost to time.

But beneath the waves of Iffenwild, a strange botanical magic stirs. It will take all of Daisy's courage and determination – and the trust of an unexpected new friend – if she is to save the Greenwild from a terrible fate.
