Description

Clara and Neil have always known the MacArthurs, the little people who live under Arthur's Seat, in Holyrood Park, but they are not quite prepared for what else is living under the legendary hill. Feuding faery lords, missing whisky, magic carpets, firestones and ancient spells are just the start.

Set against the backdrop of the Edinburgh Fringe and Military Tattoo this is a fast-paced comic adventure, full of magic, mayhem and mystery -- and, of course, a dragon.

Reviews

'For a debut novel, this is brilliant... The pace is fast moving, very readable and at times very funny... A well deserved addition to any school collection.'
--Janette Perkins, School Librarian Journal,

'... a diverting read which, refreshingly, mocks the convention it's written in. Anne Forbes has a vivid imagination which she has put to good use.'
-- Carousel, The Guide To Children's Books
