Summary

The second instalment of the international best-selling series from Jenny Nimmo starring Charlie Bone.

An academy for magic and special talents. A destiny unfulfilled. A secret legacy. Join Charlie Bone as he discovers the truth about the Red King, and the key to his own past....

January 1916. On the coldest night in memory, Henry Yewbeam's cousin Zeke tricks him into using the Time Twister, a beautiful marble full of shining colours that draws him into the future.

January 2002. Charlie meets Henry reappearing at Bloor's in the 21st century, and realises Henry's cousin is none other than old Ezekiel Bloor. Charlie and Fidelio are joined by Cook and the Flames in their attempts to hide Henry from Ezekiel's spies. But Charlie must soon enter the portrait of Skarpo the sorceror and retrieve the wand of a Welsh wizard.

With nearly five million copies sold, Jenny Nimmo's fantasy series is still charming generations of children over a decade after Charlie Bone was first printed.

Enjoyed immensely

The Charlie Bone series is fantastic! I enjoyed this book more than the last. His adventures and friends are wonderful. I finished this one and immediately had to start the next in the series! Jenny Nimmo is a phenomenal writer. I enjoyed Joe Cohen’s narration.
