But although she loves her magical animal companion - a lizard called Layla - Farah isn't entirely convinced that she's cut out for the life of adventure, which seems to bring endless danger!When it becomes clear that Farah and her fellow Moonchildren - Leo and Amira - have unlocked moon magic that could destroy the Sahar Peninsula, Farah and her friends are thrust into another accidental adventure. And it takes them to a burning desert and another mysterious city which holds deadly secrets of its own ... Go on more magical adventures in Moonchild: Voyage of the Lost and Found, the stunning prequel to Moonchild: City of the Sun
