About the book

Robert is determined to rescue Lorn, who remains trapped in the tiny underground world from which he has managed to escape. She'll die if he doesn't help her. But Lorn doesn't know what danger she is in. Something is drawing her to the dark tunnels underneath her world. Is it something that is calling her home or something more sinister? Can Robert get to her before whatever lurks in the black room does? BLGillian Cross is one of the UK's top children's authors, and has won a host of major prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Award and the Smarties Prize.

About the Author

Gillian Cross

Gillian Cross is a British author of children's books. She won the 1990 Carnegie Medal for Wolf and the 1992 Whitbread Children's Book Award for The Great Elephant Chase. She also wrote The Demon Headmaster book series, which was later turned into a television series by the BBC in January 1996; a sequel series was produced in 2019.

Cross's first published book was The Runaway. Three years later she inaugurated The Demon Headmaster series of seven books (1982 to 2002). She also completed The Dark Behind the Curtain, a horror story illustrated by David Parkins and published by Oxford University Press. It was highly commended for the 1982 Carnegie Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's best children's book by a British subject. A Map of Nowhere was highly commended for the 1988 Carnegie and she won the Medal two years later for Wolf.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
