Overview

Jack is the chosen one, the Radiant Boy the Magus needs in order to perfect the alchemy that will transform London of the 1600s into a golden city. But Jack isn't the kind of boy who will do what he is told by an evil genius, and he is soon involved in an epic and nail-biting adventure, featuring dragons, knights and Queen Elizabeth I, as he battles to save London.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR TANGLEWRECK: 'Winterson has a fine ear for children's dialogue and her writing is lucid, pitched perfectly at imaginative young readers' Sunday Telegraph 'An exceptional book: big, ambitious and awash with Winterson's usual inventiveness' Observer 'No one could fail to enjoy the book's exuberance of ideas and wacky charm' Evening Standard


Praise for 'The Battle of the Sun': 'Winterson's prose is incantatory, using repetition and resonant tautologies ... This is not a book to dash through. It is one to read slowly or aloud, in order to explore its complexity' Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times 'A beautifully crafted tale ... it's obvious in every word, every plot twist, and every character that Winterson had fun writing The Battle of the Sun. This book radiates enjoyment, and the reader can bask in it. I was mesmerised by craft of an endlessly inventive author writing at the height of her power' Guardian Praise for 'Tanglewreck': 'An exceptional book: big, ambitious and awash with Winterson's usual inventiveness' Observer 'Winterson has a fine ear for children's dialogue and her writing is lucid, pitched perfectly at imaginative young readers' Sunday Telegraph

Jeanette Winterson's first novel for children, Tanglewreck, was widely admired. Here in her second, readers will once more relish her free-spirited literary inventiveness and style. Jeanette won the Whitbread for her first book, Oranges are Not the Only Fruit. She lives in Oxfordshire and travels extensively lecturing about her work.
