We are incredibly excited to announce a wonderful new signing to Magic Oxygen Publishing, in the form of Sue Hampton, a prolific and vibrantly entertaining children’s author.
Sue has an enormous back catalogue that includes The Waterhouse Girl, The Gorilla Dreams, Alas and Alack, Just For One Day, Ongalonging and many more.
Michael Morpurgo is a great fan of her work too – take a look at Sue’s website and see what he has to say about it.
In our blog post a few days back, we revealed that Sue’s forthcoming title with us is called The Dreamer, edited by our lovely Izzy Robertson and you’ll be able to get your hands on a copy when she launches it at the Lyme Literary Festival between the 9th and 15th February 2015.
Here’s a little taster of what The Dreamer is all about.
Friends Lark and Fedor live close to nature, haunted by loss but lit by imagination. When they meet a mystical old man living alone on a mountain, they begin an adventure that soon becomes dark and desperate.
The Dreamer has no name and nothing to share with them but the beauty and magic of his crystal story bowl. But its power proves irresistible to Moro, who already owns the village and its people.
Lark and Fedor’s world is soon under threat as greed begins to destroy all it touches and the weak are first to die.
As with Gordon Strong’s new title, The Empire of Evil, you can click here and let us know if you’d like to reserve and guarantee a first edition signed copy from the author at £5.99 + £1.50 P&P if you require posting.
