Helen Dunmore to write new Ingo instalment

29th June 2010

Award-winning author Helen Dunmore is to publish another book of her Ingo series, HarperCollins has announced.

Provisionally entitled Islands of Ingo, the children's novel will be the fifth instalment of the series, which is set in a mysterious ocean world, and will follow the story of a young Cornish girl who discovers a 'mer-boy' stranded in a rock pool.

As well as the new book, HarperCollins will reissue the previous four titles in the series - Ingo, The Tide Knot, The Deep and The Crossing Of Ingo.

HarperCollins editorial director Nick Lake said the publisher is 'extremely proud' to have acquired the rights to the novel and claimed it would attract a new audience to the 'wonderful, atmospheric series'.

'Helen Dunmore has a unique ability to fuse beautiful writing with thrilling magical storytelling and a vivid sense of place,' he added.

Dunmore won the first Orange Prize for Fiction in 1995 for her novel A Spell of Winter and took a silver award in the 2006 Nestle Children's Book Prize with The Tide Knot.

In a review of her most recent novel, The Betrayal, the author was described as a 'brave' and 'tender' writer by the Independent.
