Gorgeous and funny - and a lovely celebration of the magic of books! -- Helen Falconer, author of THE CHANGELING

Scarlett Thomas has always loved stories, magic and mysterious places. She tried (and failed) to write her first novel when she was six. Since then she has successfully written lots of novels, but this is her first one for children. She lives near the sea in an old house full of books, and is a professor in the English department of the University of Kent.


Dragon's Green is the first volume in the Worldquake Sequence.
