The Unexpected Find

Author(s): Toby Ibbotson

Fantasy, Magic and Science Fiction | 2019 - 2020 Best Books for Summer

Written by Toby Ibbotson, son of the bestselling author Eva Ibbotson, this exceptional middle grade story is captivating, heartfelt and brilliant in equal measure.

When a storm hits a small and sleepy town, it ravages every living thing. But storms don't just destroy, they uncover. And when a young boy discovers a mysterious object that has lay hidden beneath a centuries-old tree, he instantly knows that it's special. What he doesn't know is that his unexpected find will unite him with a girl searching for her missing father and trigger a series of events that will see them travelling across Europe under the most unusual circumstances.

Kathleen's review - I love this adventure. Great characters and great scenery. I like the friendship between William and Judy - William a boy whose mother is clueless, Judy a girl whose Iranian father disappears on a rescue mission of his friend - and I like the unusual Mr. Balderson who takes them both under his wing.
