Product description

Long before the Hogwarts Express pulled out of Platform 9 3/4, magical goings-on were already afoot at King’s Cross! Under Platform 13, a secret door leads to an enchanted island; a door which opens only once 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 and doesn’t want to go home. Can they rescue him before time runs out – and the doorway disappears forever? A classic tale of magical mayhem from the inimitable Eva Ibbotson.

“This kind of fun will never fail to delight” Philip Pullman
