Who could have believed how much trouble an old chair could cause?
From the moment his late grandfather’s chair is delivered to Miles’ home, there seems to be magic at work. His long, friendless, school holidays are usually spent daydreaming and watching television. This year is different.
Chairs, people and books have one thing in common – you should not judge them by their covers!
Hidden under the leather covering of the chair he discovers clues to a world beyond his ordinary life in a North Yorkshire town in 1980. Miles is inexorably drawn into a dangerous world of witches, winged pigs and a mysterious tropical island.
Fearing for his life, whilst being hunted by a ferocious enemy, Miles decides that he should leave a record of his exploits. Thank goodness he did!
