Daisy Thistledown has escaped from boarding school and has a mystery to solve. Her search for her missing mother will lead her across London and through a hidden doorway to another world, filled with plants and bursting with magic: the Greenwild.
But all is not well in this astonishing land. Before long Daisy finds herself confronting a dangerous presence that threatens green magic on both sides of the door. Daisy must band together with a botanical genius, a boy who can talk to animals, and a cat with an attitude, to channel the power that can revive the Greenwild and find her missing mother - and save her own world too.
Embark on an unforgettable adventure through the Greenwild, beautifully illustrated by Elisa Paganelli.

This wonderful book is a masterclass in how to write a timeless adventure story . . . Thomson is a razor-quick writer, who always keeps the reader tottering near a cliff.
The scene-setting is exquisite and the writing a delight.
