Morrigan Crow's adventures in the magical world of Nevermoor continue . . . The most anticipated sequel of the year - a treat for all fans of magic and 'wunder'. A stunningly designed package - with silver foil, hidden artwork under the jacket and beautifully designed interiors - a perfect gift for all young readers.

"light and dark, twists, inventiveness and big themes of prejudice and resistance"

Jessica Townsend’s acclaimed Rowlingesque Nevermoor, in which an unhappy girl finds her magical destiny thanks to being whisked away by a patron who resembles the 10th Doctor, now has a worthy sequel. In Wundersmith (Orion £12.99, 8+), Morrigan Crow and her diverse peers with special powers negotiate rights and wrongs. This has light and dark, twists, inventiveness and big themes of prejudice and resistance.
