A time-hopping graphic novel adventure that will take you to unexpected places.

Young readers will be enchanted by this action-packed graphic novel, filled with humour and emotion, perfect for 8+.

We love the sound of this magical, time-hopping, international adventure story, told through beautiful illustrations in a graphic novel format. We are often asked to recommend titles for kids whose family members are experiencing dementia and this gentle, entertaining book explores the subject with humour and empathy.


Lately Lily's grandad has been confused and forgetful, but Lily just knows that if she can help Grandad unlock his past, he'll be back to normal.

Then Grandad's memories magically start coming to life and Lily and Grandad travel back to his childhood in Hungary. But they both get more than they bargained for when they get stuck in Grandad's darkest memory....

Can Lily find the light at the end of the tunnel?

Nigel Baines is an experienced illustrator and book designer who has worked for various trade publishing houses. He is a keen walker and would like to spend half the year living on top of the Andes. His other great loves are Grantham Town Football Club and any kind of travel.
