Sylvie and the Songman
'Something had happened to her, something which had changed her for ever. There were many things she did not fully understand, but she felt at home here, as if this place, this adventure, had been waiting for her all her life.'
Sylvia Bartram's beloved bag, Mr Jackson, has lost his bark. The birds have stopped singing. And in the growing silence, her dad -- her dear music-making dad -- has disappeared.
Determined to find him, Sylvie and her best friend, kite-flying, tone-deaf George, are drawn into the nightmare world of the Songman, a world haunted by the terrifying Woodpecker Man in his swan-powered balloon, a world where nothing can sing and no one can speak. Only Sylvie can save the earth from its terrible, voiceless fate.
By turns thrilling adventure and enchanting fantasy, Tim Binding's Sylvie and the Songman brims with music and magic, all wonderfully illuminated by Angela Barrett's exquisite pictures.
