Product description

Magic is afoot at King’s Cross Station in the glorious classic fantasy that got there before the Hogwarts Express! Under Platform 13 at King’s Cross is a secret door that leads to a magical island. The door appears only once every nine years. And this time when it opens, four mysterious figures step out into London’s busy streets. A wizard, an ogre, a fey and a young hag have come to find the prince of their kingdom, stolen as a baby nine years before. But the prince has become a horrible rich boy called Raymond Trottle, who doesn’t believe in magic and refuses to be rescued. How will they bring him home? Perhaps you’d like to go in his place?

  • Eva Ibbotson’s classic tale of monsters and magic
  • Now in a fully illustrated 25th anniversary edition
  • By the best-loved author of Journey to the River Sea
  • Look out for the new sequel, Beyond Platform 13
