Pack your suitcase for a magical adventure! Perfect for fans of The Train to Impossible Places and The Polar Bear Explorers Club.
At the Strangeworlds Travel Agency, each suitcase transports you to a different world. All you have to do is step inside . . .
When 12-year-old Flick Hudson accidentally ends up in the Strangeworlds Travel Agency, she uncovers a fantastic secret: there are hundreds of other worlds just steps away from ours. All you have to do to visit them is jump into the right suitcase. Then Flick gets the invitation of a lifetime: join Strangeworlds’ magical travel society and explore other worlds.
But, unknown to Flick, the world at the very centre of it all, a city called Five Lights, is in danger. Buildings and even streets are mysteriously disappearing. Once Flick realizes what’s happening she must race against time, travelling through unchartered worlds, seeking a way to fix Five Lights before it collapses into nothingness — and takes our world with it.
A magical adventure for 9+ readers that will take you to whole new worlds.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
This is one cracking new series for children 9+ to get in on as it has endless possibilities for so many adventures. The Strangeworlds Travel Agency is just what it says and has a unique way of travelling to extremely weird and wonderful new worlds. For very special people, that have been invited to join this exclusive club of world travellers, they simply choose a suitcase, open it up and step inside, then they are taken on a fabulous holiday.
It is of course very secretive and has strict rules that must be followed and with notes of the place, people and world made and handed to the travel agent. That is now Jonathan, due to his dad going missing a little while ago. When Felicity moves into the area she comes across the travel agency and is soon found to have the very special qualities needed to be invited to be a traveller.
Jonathan accompanies Felicity on her new adventures where they travel to some pretty weird, wonderful and bizarre places. There is also a little detective work going on with them both trying to find out what happened to Jonathan’s dad, a bit of danger and a lot of being a hero too.
A great story to get the series off to a tremendous start.
I wish to thank NetGalley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
