Nobody visits Eerie-on-Sea in winter. Especially not after darkness falls, and the night wind howls around Maw Rocks and the wreck of the battleship Leviathan. Eerie-on-Sea has always been a mysteriously chilling place, where strange stories seem to wash up. And it’s about to get even stranger. Herbert Lemon, Lost-and-Founder at the Grand Nautilus Hotel, knows that returning lost things to their rightful owners isn’t always easy. Especially when the lost thing isn’t a thing at all, but a girl’s missing parents. No one knows what happened to Violet Parma’s parents twelve years ago. But when she asks Herbie to help her find them, it appears that their strange disappearance might have something to do with a legendary sea-monster, the terrifying Malamander…
- A thrilling sea-splashed adventure full of eerie atmosphere
- Perfect for older fans of Sylvia Bishop and Lemony Snicket
- Thomas Taylor illustrated the original Harry Potter covers
- He is now winning widespread acclaim as a children’s author
“A wonderfully imaginative and atmospheric adventure, rich in myth and legend and with a delicious gothic edge… Taylor is best known as an illustrator – he famously created the original jacket for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – but Malamander confirms him as a ferociously talented writer… this really is one that deserves all the buzz.” Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
“Full of unforgettable characters and brimming with maritime mystery, Malamander is a masterclass in original story-telling. Taylor’s magical touch makes you believe in the impossible.” Catherine Doyle
