Product Description

Beautiful in every way: a sumptuously illustrated gem that will touch your deepest heart. Frank doesn’t know how to feel when Nick Underbridge saves her from bullies one afternoon. No one likes Nick. He’s big, he’s weird and he smells – or so everyone in Frank’s class thinks. Yet there’s something nice about Nick’s house. There’s strange music playing there, and it feels light and good and makes Frank feel happy for the first time in forever. All the same, there’s more to Nick (and to his house) than meets the eye. Soon Frank realises she isn’t the only one keeping secrets. Or the only one who needs help…

  • A deeply moving tale of friendship and the power of the extraordinary
  • Wonderfully expressive drawings by the award-winning Levi Pinfold
  • A.F. Harrold is the critically acclaimed author of The Imaginary
  • Menacing, poignant and darkly comic – a true flight of imagination

“Broodingly atmospheric … A fantasy blending the strange and the everyday.” Sunday Times

“Extraordinary … as moving, strange and profound as Skellig.” Guardian
