‘McNeill has created a fabulous universe packed full of wonder and terror. The Beginning Woods has earned its place on a shelf with Gormenghast and The Princess Bride. I loved every word and was envious of quite a few. It opened my eyes wide and quickened my heart. A modern classic: rich, funny and terrifying’ — Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl

And that’s just what Eoin Colfer thought! The Beginning Woods is an absolutely enthralling adventure.

The Vanishings started without warning. People disappearing into thin air – just piles of clothes left behind. Each day, thousands gone without a trace. Young Max, abandoned in a Bookshop as a baby, is the only one who can find answers. To do that, he must enter another realm.

Older readers are invited to consider McNeill’s challenge: Dare you follow your dreams? Come hear first hand about the mystery no one can solve, the child no one wanted and the secret that could alter the future.

Ideal for children and teenagers aged 12+.
