The Book of Lost Things

Author(s): John Connolly

Children and Young Adult

'A brilliantly creepy coming of age novel' Daily Mirror

'A moving fable, brilliantly imagined, about the agony of loss and the pain of young adulthood' The Times

'This is no saccharine fairytale, but an eerie fable that's perfect for long winter nights' Daily Mail

This illustrated edition includes two new short stories - Cinderella, A Version and The Rat King, the latter introducing the Crooked Man who is central to the world of The Book of Lost Things - and an afterword from the author.

'Once upon a time, there was a boy who lost his mother . . .' As twelve-year-old David takes refuge from his grief in the myths and fairytales so beloved of his dead mother, he finds the real world and the fantasy world begin to blend. That is when bad things start to happen. That is when the Crooked Man comes. And David is violently propelled into a land populated by heroes, wolves and monsters in his quest to find the legendary Book of Lost Things.
