Product Description

Long before the Hogwarts Express pulled out of Platform 9 3/4, magical goings-on were already afoot at at King’s Cross station. It’s true. Under Platform 13, a secret door leads to a magical island; a door which only opens every nine years. Last time it opened, the island’s baby prince was stolen and lost on the streets of London. Now a peculiar rescue party, led by a wizard and an ogre, must find him and bring him back. But their long-lost prince has become a spoilt rich boy who doesn’t believe in magic. How can they take him back home? Perhaps you’d like to go in his place?

Eva Ibbotson is the award-winning author of many books for children and adults. She has a daughter and three sons, who showed her that children like to read about ghosts, wizards, and witches “because they are just like people but madder and more interesting.”

She was born in Vienna, in Austria, but moved to England with her family when the Nazis came to power. After training to be a physiologist which she didn’t enjoy because she didn’t like doing experiments on animals, Eva got married and had four very nice children.

Her first children’s book, The Great Ghost Rescue was published in 1975, and she is best known for titles like Journey to the River Sea and The Dragonfly Pool. Eva died in 2010, aged 85.
