When a little boy's ball disappears down a mysterious hole in the garden, he can't stop thinking about what could be down there - a little mouse's house? The lair of a hungry troll? Or maybe even a dragon's den. Whatever it may be, he's determined to find out!

The Something is a glorious imaginative adventure from Rebecca Cobb, the award-winning creator of Aunt Amelia and Lunchtime, and illustrator of The Paper Dolls, written by Julia Donaldson.

In the media

Cobb's illustrations capture the joy of childhood.
The Sunday Times
A mysterious hole in the garden provokes some wonderfully imaginative theories. Another absolute gem from Cobb, one of my (and my five-year-old's) favourite picture book creators.
The Bookseller
Cobb taps into something quite magical in the heart of childhood
