Product Description

Here’s what we call wow-factor. A boy so brave he flies into the clouds on a kite to listen to the spirits of the dead. Forget surfing. Haoyou is the Kite Rider – a boy with a job like no other. Strapped to a kite and sent into the heavens, to carry messages back to Earth from there. But a stunt like that is bound to turn heads (just like this book.) Haoyou is soon winning not just admirers but deadly enemies. The Jade Circus offers him a way to see the world, and even perform before the great Kublai Khan himself. But is the circus master leading Haoyou into terrible danger? Ghosts and family, prophecy and fate; all the exotic sights, smells and sounds of Ancient China. A tale unlike any you have ever read, to set your imagination soaring.

“A masterpiece of storytelling.” The Times

Author/Illustrator

Geraldine McCaughrean

24402 mccaughrean 1 206732

Geraldine McCaughrean was born and educated in Enfield, North London, the third and youngest child of a fireman and a teacher. She attended Christ Church College of Education but instead of teaching chose to work for a magazine publishing house. Her favourite assignments included the best-selling children’s partworks Storyteller and Little Storyteller. Only in 1988 did she become a full-time writer. Since then, Geraldine has established herself as one of the most exciting children’s writer’s today.

She often visits nearby schools to talk about being a writer and play story-making games, and, of course, to find out what the really important people – the readers – are thinking.

In 2004, the Great Ormond Street Hospital trustees launched the search for an author to write the sequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s novel Peter Pan. Geraldine was chosen from over 200 applicants, and Peter Pan in Scarlet became a bestseller in 2006.

Geraldine and her husband John live in Berkshire and have one teenage daughter, Ailsa. In all, Geraldine has written over 140 books, mostly for children, as well as plays and poetry, and has been published in 25 languages.
