The Other Alice
*WINNER of the CALDERDALE BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2017*
What happens when a tale with real magic, that was supposed to be finished, never was? This is a story about one of those stories . . .
Midge loves riddles, his cat, Twitch, and – most of all – stories. Especially because he’s grown up being read to by his sister Alice, a brilliant writer. When Alice goes missing and a talking cat turns up in her bedroom, Midge searches Alice’s stories for a clue. Soon he discovers that her secret book, The Museum of Unfinished Stories, is much more than just a story. In fact, he finds two of its characters wandering around town. But every tale has its villains – and with them leaping off the page, Midge, Gypsy and Piper must use all their wits and cunning to work out how the story ends and find Alice. If they fail, a more sinister finale threatens them all . . .
Reviews of The Other Alice
A fast-paced, tautly woven story stuffed full of imagination, magic and adventure.
Beautifully written . . . a true testament to the power of storytelling.
An exciting, original, gripping adventure, embroidered with riddles and curses, laced with dry wit, and which gallops along at a terrific pace.
