Seldom has a book attracted more heartfelt praise than Uprooted - and it is all truly deserved! Uprooted is a gem of a novel that contains joy, heartache, adventure and breathless excitement. Like all the best stories based on fairy tales, there's also a touch of darkness to add some spice to its charms . . . It's no wonder there was a three-studio bidding war for movie rights! And now, this wonderful novel gets to wear a beautiful new face for its paperback edition, in May next year. Our head of design has done an outstanding job here. See below for the new paperback cover - the golden parts will be gilded in gold foil too for extra sumptuousness. The striking hardback cover art is on the right, for comparison, also looking very fine indeed. What do you think?! You can catch an extract of Uprooted here too, to experience a hint of its magic.
