Greenwild: The World Behind the Door is the first book in the most extraordinary new fantasy series of 2023.
'Greenwild is a thrilling adventure that takes seed in your imagination and runs wild!' - M. G. Leonard
Open the door to a spellbinding world where the wilderness is alive and a deep magic rises from the earth itself . . .
Daisy Thistledown has recently 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, 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.
Phenomenal . . . If you don’t believe in magic, you will after you’ve read Greenwild.
A. F. Steadman, author of Skandar and the Unicorn Thief
A spellbinding, enchanting read full of wildness and beauty.
Hannah Gold, author of The Last Bear
This enthralling story is entwined with the magic of the natural world, and in Daisy Thistledown, Pari Thomson has created a brave and endearing hero who grows with each new challenge. Elisa Paganelli’s stunning illustrations make this a truly wonderful book that children will love.
