Impossible Creatures by Katherine Rundell

"The first fantasy fiction title from a best-selling children’s author. This multi award winning book is a great read for Key Stage 2 young people and above.

Very much in the tradition of Philip Pullman and Tolkien but with it's own distinct voice, this is the first book of a trilogy following the adventures of Christopher who finds a way into the hidden world of the Archipelago and Mal, who he meets there, and the killer who is trying to track Mal down.

Featuring a baby griffin, a flying coat, sphinxes and centaurs and other mythical creatures to spark the imagination, this one comes thoroughly recommended and I can’t wait for the next book in the series!"
