Atmospheric, intelligent and thought-provoking, this is the kind of story that leaps out and yells 'surprise!' every time you feel sure you have a handle on it.

Three children get lost in the woods and desperately try to help each other to find their way home before the legendary Old Crony - who they say eats children - makes an appearance.

Tapping into the natural world around them and putting their code-cracking know how to good use, the children find clues in the rhythm of birdsong and shapes o

A wonderful read that builds suspense from the get-go.

Charlie and Dizzy get lost in the woods, after following what they believe to be secret messages on the forest’s floor. As they try to fathom what they’re being told, a darkness descends: darker than any darkness Charlie has experiences before.

Mind-bending in the absolute best way, this is yet another triumph from Christopher Edge.
The story starts with three children going into the woods behind their school to look at what appears to be a message in code. Then strange things start happening, the path is lost and it gets dark. Can they find their way home, when even the moon and stars seem to have changed above them?
Each chapter builds suspense and I found myself reading faster and faster as it hurtled towards a conclusion.
The blend of

Charlie has moved from London to the countryside and is struggling to fit in. Dizzy isn't interested in school, preferring to be outside in nature, observing and watching. Johnny is a bit of a bully and teases both Charlie and Dizzy. When all three get lost in the woods, they have to rely on each other to find the way home. But strange things keep happening, messages are being left for them, paths disappear and the legend of Old Crony, who eats children, is on all their minds.

Another wonderful b

A mind-blowing, heart-stopping, dimension-defying dash through time that thrums with tantalising twists & leaves you completely breathless. With a nod to WW2 in this masterclass in mixing suspense & science; this is Edge at his most edgiest.
