This August we’re thrilled to be publishing A Chase in Time – the first book in an action-packed new series written by Sally Nicholls, winner of the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, and with artwork by Brett Helquist, illustrator of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
And today we’re delighted to share an exclusive preview of A Chase in Time – you can read the first chapter of the new book here!
The old gilt-edged mirror has hung in Alex’s aunt’s house for as long as he can remember. Alex hardly notices it, until the day he and his sister are pulled through the mirror, back into 1912. It’s the same house, but a very different place to live, and the people they meet need their help. Soon they’re caught up in car chases and treasure hunts as they race to find a priceless golden cup – but will they ever be able to return to their own time?
From multi-award-winning author Sally Nicholls, A Chase in Time is the first in a brilliant time-slip adventure series for 7+ readers, beautifully illustrated by Brett Helquist.
And here’s a look inside the book:
