Twice shortlisted for the Carnegie prize, world-travelling Garry Kilworth has written a number of acclaimed and much-loved stories for children.
Nail biting adventure powers this time slip story in which three young people are transported back in time to search for their missing parents. Will they find their parents and, even if they do, will they be able to return home unless they can find the key to their time machine? Garry Douglas Kilworth is also the author of Jigsaw.
The land of Welkin is in trouble! Not only is it at risk of flood, but now the rat hordes are on the move, fighting to gain dominance over the other animals.... Sylver's search for the elusive humans - their only hope - leads him and his intrepid band of weasels to an enormous ruined castle, deep in the heart of the bleak flatlands of Darkmoor. Here he meets Clive of Coldkettle, the leader of the red squirrels - who are in a state of permanent war with the grey squirrels. Can Sylver suceed in his quest whilst caught in the midst of such a savage conflict?
Long ago, long before Sylver the weasel was born, the humans all left Welkin. Now life for a weasel - under the heavy paw of the vicious stoat rulers - is pretty miserable (unless you hap,pen to be a weasel who LIKES living in a hovel and toiling all hours for the benefit of the stoats). It's certainly not enough for Sylver. Or for his small band of outlaws, both jacks and jills. But slingshots and darts can only do so much against heavily-armed stoats and life as an outlaw has a fairly limited future (probably a painful one, too). That's when Sylver comes up with his plan - a heroic plan that could destroy the stoats' reign of power for ever. He will find the humans, and bring them back to Welkin! And the first step is to follow up a clue from the past - a clue that lies in a place known as THUNDER OAK...
