Dragons of Hallow Book 1


There are Three Great Secrets in Hallow, a country that loves secrets almost as much as it loves green jellybabies. No, I’m not going to tell you anything more about them. I am a loyal citizen of Hallow, and would never betray—

Oh, you have jellybabies?

Green ones?

Well, I suppose I could tell you a little more.

Come closer. Open your ears and your heart, and pass the green jellybabies.

I will tell you a story about an enormous magical pup, a child Queen and a very small minch-wiggin with the unfortunate title of Destroyer-of-Dragons.

A fascinating tale filled with falsehoods, fortitude and friendship (and just the right number of green jellybabies), from the award-winning author of A Clue for Clara and Museum of Thieves.

Perfect twisty plot and pace, constant laughs, a fresh new world, and characters to cheer: this book made me beam. I loved it!

Jaclyn Moriarty

Full of secrets and mystery, with wonder on every page.

Kate Temple

This highly engaging fantasy adventure is set in a unique magical world filled with delightful, quirky characters. There are many twists and turns, particularly as it comes to its startling conclusion, but there is also plenty of humour. Full-page illustrations by Sally Soweol Han scattered throughout the text add to the charm. Spellhound will be enjoyed by fantasy lovers aged nine and up, or would make a captivating read-aloud for younger children.
