    Toby's father, a brilliant scientist, has discovered an alarming truth about the great oak Tree that Toby’s people call home: it’s alive. And if they continue digging deeper into the heart of the Tree, their whole civilization could be at risk. In an attempt to silence Professor Lolness, the builders who control things in the Tree take him and his family captive. But Toby manages to escape, taking with him the secret to the Tree’s energy - a secret his pursuers will do anything to get their hands on, even if it means killing an innocent boy.

    Toby’s world is under greater threat than ever before. A giant crater has been dug right into the center of the Tree, moss and lichen have invaded the branches, and one tyrant controls it all. Leo Blue, once Toby’s best friend, is holding Toby’s beloved Elisha prisoner, hunting the Grass People with merciless force, and inflicting a life of poverty and fear on the Tree People. But after several years among the Grass People, Toby has returned to fight back. And this time he’s not alone: a resistance is forming.

    "Je suis parti un matin d'hiver en chasse de l'enfance. J'avais décidé de la capturer entière et vivante. 'Regarde, elle est là, tu la vois ?' Je l'avais toujours sentie battre en moi, elle ne m'avait jamais quitté. Mais c'était le vol d'un papillon obscur à l'intérieur, le frôlement d'ailes invisibles dont je ne retrouvais qu'un peu de poudre sur mes bras au réveil." "Neverland" est un retour au pays d'enfance, un irrésistible voyage vers ces hauts territoires perdus que nous portons tous en nous.

    A toy soldier. A butter dish. A compass. Mundane objects, perhaps, but to the remarkable authors in this collection, artifacts such as these have inspired stories that go to the heart of the human experience of World War I. Each author was invited to choose an object that had a connection to the war - a writing kit for David Almond, a helmet for Michael Morpurgo - and use it as the inspiration for an original short story.
