Publisher's Summary

After the worldquake, magic is seeping into our world.

Effie Truelove has made a promise to keep her grandfather's magical books safe from danger. Whatever it takes. But it's not always easy when you're a pupil at the Tusitala School for the Gifted, Troubled and Strange.

Together with her new school friends, Maximilian, Wolf, Lexy and Raven, Effie must travel to the mysterious Otherworld and brave the terrifying Diberi, a secret organisation with plans that could destroy the entire universe.

Scarlett Thomas on top form

Best children's book we've listened to in ages. Other worlds, magic, nicely pictured, dark enough without being scary.

Good story, good foundation for a series

A good story, which gets better as it goes and draws you in.

My only real gripe is that there is no gap between the end of the chapter and Roger telling you it's now chapter x. This is really annoying as it jars and stops you getting lost in excellent narration

Enjoyable story

If you could sum up Dragon's Green in three words, what would they be?

Interesting and enjoyable

What about Roger Allam’s performance did you like?

Good clear narrative. I enjoyed his reading of the book very much.

Any additional comments?

A very good story, well paced and very well written. I am looking forward to book 2.
