      Join Jordy, Alex, and Chloe as they cross the portal from our world to a strange and wonderful other place, accessible for just a moment in time through the trapdoor of the attic in their family home. From hat-stand forests to towering hills of old musical instruments, deserts of old books, and a great water-tank lake, the vast continent they stumble upon is one of limitless surprises—and that's before they meet the inhabitants—strange clans of small and lumpen people who live in homes constructed from all manner of found things and drive vehicles powered by old sewing-machine parts. It is against this remarkable backdrop that the three children will embark on a spellbinding adventure to recover a prized possession, save a life, and—somehow—find a way back home. A story of courage, loyalty, and friendship; of Browsers, Shadow-Tangles, and Tatterdermalions; of incredible landscapes, ingenious devices, and cunning plot twists; Attica has a richness and depth that will delight readers of all ages.
