Twins Arthur and Rose can’t wait to go back to Roar, the fantasy world they get to through their grandad’s attic. Roar is a land of dragons, mermaids, unicorns, ninja wizards and where anything they can imagine can be real. 

But when they return there’s no time for exploring, because a message arrives from their scarecrow enemy, Crowky. 

WHAT’S IN THE BOX? 

The Box would always contain the things that scared the twins most – and if Crowky gets hold of it, Roar could be in more danger than ever. 

Soon they find themselves on another thrilling adventure, accompanied by old friends and new faces and seeing parts of Roar they’d almost forgotten. But will they get to the box before Crowky does? And if it opens, what will they see?

Praise for The Land of Roar:

‘This funny, captivating story is filled with the painful pangs of growing up and the transporting qualities of imagination’ Guardian

‘A vividly imagined adventure, […] full of heart, humour and a terrifying villain’ Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

‘This is proof, not that it’s needed, that Jenny McLachlan is a writer of enormous heart and versatility. I’m a really big fan’ Phil Earle, award-winning author of Being Billy and co-author of Get Me Out of Here! with Andy McNab

‘Roar is an exhilarating, hilarious, vividly drawn tribute to the power of the childhood imagination, the love of family and the magic we risk losing as we grow up. If you plan to visit one new place in 2019, make it Roar’ Sarah Driver, author of The Huntress trilogy
