Summary

'Peter Dickinson is the most surprising, the most original of children's writers at work today. His books carry a charge of excitement, and a restless exploration of large ideas, which I find unfailingly thrilling' Philip Pullman

The Ropemaker Summary

The Ropemaker by Peter Dickinson

The magic in the Valley is dying.

In the forest, the cedar trees whisper the news. The age-old spell can no longer protect the land from its enemies.

Four companions must find the sorcerer who conjured the ancient power. He has not been seen for centuries, hidden in the dark heart of an evil Empire. Their journey is desperately dangerous, and the travellers are shadowed by a mysterious figure. Is the shape-changing Ropemaker their ally? Or a deadly enemey? And does he command the deepest magic of all? That weaves and unweaves the great rope that is time itself....
