A spell-binding adventure of magical fantasy from the author of Charlie Bone, Jenny Nimmo. Gabar wheeled around to see a crowd of thin green creatures creeping towards him. Their wet hair dangled, their red eyes flashed and their long arms swung like slimy vines. 'Camel, ' said one. 'Let us take your heavy burdens. ' Gabar raised his head and bellowed. But root-like fingers were now reaching for the bag that contained the moon cloak. Timoken has to flee his secret forest kingdom after it is attacked by sneaky, shape-shifting viridees. Protected from birth by a magical moon spider web, he travels with his camel, Gabar, seeking a new kingdom - a new home. Timoken also has magic himself. He can conjure rain from the air, talk to animals and fly high in the air. And when he saves three leopard cubs from a hunter, they become enchanted too, and sworn to protect him. But the powerful, slimy green viridees are always just a breath behind him. They want the moon spider's web. And they will do anything to get it... Combining all of Jenny Nimmo's trademark elements - unusual but compelling characters, stunning magic and a rich, vibrant story - The Secret Kingdom is perfect for lovers of Charlie Bone and fantasy books. 'Jenny Nimmo writes with incredible vigour and passion' Guardian

A secret, peaceful kingdom is attacked by evil creatures known as viridees. Before birth, though, and before the kingdom was under attack, a forest jinni gives a web of the last moon spider and a bottle of Alixir (no-aging water) to the prince, Timoken. His sister, Zobayda, had magic at her fingertips and together the two must survive the attack, but how? Read to find out!
