Elidor Summary


Elidor by Alan Garner

Roland, Helen, Nicholas and David, four Manchester children, are led into Elidor, a twilight world almost destroyed by fear and darkness.

On a gloomy day in Manchester, Roland, Helen, Nicholas and David are lured into a ruined church, where the fabric of time and place is weak enough to allow them into the twilight world of Elidor. It is a place almost destroyed by fear and darkness, and the children are charged with guarding its Treasures while a way is sought to save the dying land.

Then the evil forces find a path through to this world...

This new edition of Alan Garner's classic includes a special "Why You'll Love This Book" introduction from bestselling author, Jonathan Stroud.

Elidor Reviews


"Funny and wise" Cressida Cowell, author of `How to Train Your Dragon'

Praise for The Phantom Tollbooth:
`An altogether remarkable book, one that should delight any bright child, and that will be no burden for a parent to read aloud. Related with unflagging wit and a marvellous sense of the fun to be had with words, this book will be enjoyed by children for years to come.' Spectator

Praise for Elidor:
`Each detail, ordinary or sinister, establishes atmosphere, background or character exactly. Elidor is a remarkable book: intelligent, rich and terrifying.'
TLS

Praise for The Sword in the Stone:
`One of the most significant books in my life...One of the greatest and most influential fantasy novels of the last hundred years."
Garth Nix
