A magical, heartwarming illustrated tale for readers aged 5+.

Young readers will be delighted by this fantasy adventure by the author of The Wishkeeper's Apprentice.

We loved Rachel Chivers Khoo's The Wishkeeper's Apprentice and are excited to see her back again with another charming magical adventure for younger readers, packed with gorgeous black and white illustrations by Alice McKinley. This has such a classic feel and makes perfect family reading.


Late one night a flying house crash-lands in ten-year-old Callie's garden. It is the home of magician Winnifred and all of her magical artefacts. Winnifred asks for Callie's help finding her lost Wanderdust – until she realizes it is Callie's sadness that is causing her malfunctioning magic.

With Winnifred's most precious magical possessions at risk from malicious pixies and dangerous giants, can Callie and her friend Sam find the Wanderdust in time to save the magician?

Rachel Chivers Khoo was born in Belfast and spent most of her childhood sheltering in her local library from the endless Northern Irish rain. She studied English Literature at Oxford before working in book publishing.
