The incredible adventures through time continue for Susan, Charles and Murray in this second instalment of the Drift House stories. Susan and Charles return to Uncle Farley's house for what they are sure will be the most exciting summer of their lives, and can't wait to learn more of Drift House's secrets. But things start off much sooner than they might think when a mighty tidal wave washes Drift House out to sea - with Susan and Farley on board, but Charles and the parrot, President Wilson, left behind in a tree. Separated by time and space, and beset by encounters with Vikings, Native Americans, the Trojan Horse and many other fascinating characters, this action-packed sequel to Drift House is both more accessible than the first, and with cliffhangers at every turn, even more thrilling.
“[Peck] shows a fecund imagination but also the influence of Hollywood films, Disney animation, and children's classics (by CS Lewis and E Nesbit).'” – Daily Telegraph
“'The book is thoroughly enjoyable read and one that will doubtless re-affirm Peck's reputation as one of the 21st century's finest talents'” – ReFresh magazine
