Paperback / softback

Description

A magical tale for nature lovers and fans of adventure, from award-winning author-illustrator Tim Tilley. Winner of Best Children's Book 6+: Silver at the Junior Design Awards 2021. "A charming fairytale adventure with an enduring ecological message." Peter Bunzl, author of CogheartWick has always lived in the dark and dreadful Harklights Match Factory and Orphanage, working tirelessly for greedy Old Ma Bogey.

He only dreams of escaping, until one day a bird drops something impossible and magical at his feet - a tiny baby in an acorn cradle... As midnight chimes, Wick is visited by the Hobs, miniature protectors of the forest.

Grateful for the kindness shown to their stolen child, they offer Wick the chance of a lifetime - escape from Harklights and begin a new life with them in the wild... Winner of the Joan Aiken Future Classics Prize, Harklights is a magical story celebrating family, friendship and the natural world, filled with a message of hope for our times.
