"Thoughtful fantasy classic" Purchased on Mighty Ape

I bought and read this book to my children and have now bought it for my grandchildren. To my mind its an absolute classic ,presenting moral and metaphysical dilemnas that resonate with kids, combined with terrifying and thrilling scenarios. Set in recognisable Auckland .And written by our own Maurice Gee,which means the characters and dialogue are authentic and theres none of that formulaic stuff you get in the crowded kid fiction scene these days.


When Theo and Rachel Matheson head for Auckland to spend a fortnight with their uncle and aunt, they are prepared for the usual entertainments that the city can provide. But their relatives have curious neighbours who seem to take an unusual interest in the red-haired twins. And once they meet the extraordinary Mr Jones, their holiday begins to take a course of its own. Beneath extinct volcanoes giant creatures are waking from a spellbound sleep of several thousand years. Their goal is the destruction of the world. Time is running out. The Matheson twins, chosen to oppose the monsters, know themselves to be as fallible as any other eleven-year-olds …This children's classic by award-winning Maurice Gee is now a major motion picture event.


Winner of Gaelyn Gordon Award for a Much-Loved Book 2004.
