Mirrorscape Publisher's Summary

A thrilling adventure filled with fantastical creatures in an incredible secret world. Step into the Mirrorscape and explore the secret world behind the paintings. A dangerous world where anything is possible...a thrilling and inventive adventure for all fantasy fans, children and adults alike.

Imagine being able to step into a painting. This is the Mirrorscape.

Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, Melkin Womper is apprenticed to a master painter, Ambrosius Blenk. Son of a village weaver, Mel is overawed by the master's richly coloured and vividly detailed paintings. He is particularly amazed by the colours, because there are no colours back home. To have colour in your life, you have to buy the Pleasure, and the sinister scarlet-robed Fifth Mystery own the rights to such Pleasures.

Soon, Mel and his new friends, Ludo and Wren, find themselves caught in a power struggle between the Mystery and the master, one that involves stepping through paintings into a world where the bizarre is commonplace and all logic is irrelevant. It's a world where angels, pyramid mazes, imaginary monsters, talking houses and - most importantly - the simple paintbrush all combine to form a hugely original and deeply compelling fantasy.

    Melkin Womper is thrilled to escape his dull future as a village weaver and develop his artis-tic talent when he's apprenticed to Ambrosius Blenk, one of Vlam's most famous masters. Mel is especially excited by the colors that he'll be able to use, since color is a very expensive Pleasure, strictly controlled by the sinister Fifth Mystery. Mel can't wait to enjoy the wonders of the grand city and begin his important work for Blenk. Instead, his dreams are quickly crushed by the reality of days filled with unimportant tasks and bullying by the other apprentices.
