Summary

Sometimes at the darkest hour, hope shines the brightest....

When Col's childhood imaginary friends come to life, he discovers a world where myths and legends are real. Accompanied by his guardians - a six-foot tiger, a badger in a waistcoat and a miniature knight - Col must race to Blitz-bombed London to save his sister.

But there are darker forces at work, even more than the Nazi bombings. Soon Col is pursued by the terrifying Midwinter King, who is determined to bring an eternal darkness down over everything.

Everything and More...

Ok... there’s a lot to process here...
World War II evacuee, the Holocaust, the fight of the Jews in 1930s Germany, kindertransport, the blitz, family torn apart by war and tragedy... oh, and UK mythology and magic... so yeah... kind of a lot to take in, and yet Ross has created a superb cast of characters that seem to live out 2 or 3 stories in one... honestly - this, is a flipping good book!

Judaism, religion, world war 2 and magic

An eclectic mix of themes that are thinly veiled beneath a children's story. Quite long in parts but a decent story that hammers home messages about war and anti-Semitism.

A must read

Loved this story!!

It's a great adventure with a lovely message about friendship and over coming fear. The last 10 chapters I couldn't stop listening. I would fully recommend this story for both adults and children 8+.
