Product description

The Russian Revolution. Fairy tale, spy thriller, love story. One man’s life during the last days of the Romanovs, beautifully imagined by award-winning author Marcus Sedgwick. Shortlisted for the Costa Children’s Book Award.

Set in the rich and atmospheric landscape of Russia during the revolution that sent shockwaves around the world, this is the partly true story of Arthur Ransome – a writer accused of being a spy.

Fictionalising history and blending it with one man’s real life, Marcus Sedgwick expertly crafts this innovative and stimulating novel of three parts – a fairy tale full of wise and foolish kings, princesses, wishes and magic; a bleak and threatening spy thriller, and a love story . . .
