The Twelve Quests, BOOK 5, A Firebird's Feather by Ana Fischel. It was 1849 and life was as tough as old boots for most people, that's if you had shoes at all! Poor 10 year old twins Albert and Florrie Leadington had less than most. Indeed life had been most unkind to them in recent months as they desperately struggled to complete twelve diabolical quests. As the children are forced to continue their epic journey with just a Cockney smuggler, his magic compass and the neurotic Arthur Canarthy at their side, things had hardly been a bundle of laughs especially as they had all just been taken hostage by a bunch of cut-throat bandits, two of which had already tried to bury them alive! However, with the vindictive Madame Divitan closely watching their every move and werewolves waiting in the woods the future looked as bleak as a wet weekend..."Bleedin' 'ell, we're 'eaded towards the waterfall!" shouted Ebenezer Smythe. "Oh this is not good!" wailed Arthur Canarthy, understating the obvious as usual. "We will be drowned for sure and that is a most unpleasant death I'm told." "Help us Uncle Arthur! Do something!" cried Florrie, as she swallowed a mouthful of water and choked it up again.

But it was too late, as the force of the current had them in its grip and swept them straight over the edge...Intrigued? You should be if you like quirky fantasy adventure books full of danger, dark magic and mystical folklore! The first 6 in this series of The Twelve Quests (for 7 -- 12 year olds) are now available to buy online via most main bookstores and are published by Arts Council funded YouWriteOn. The remaining 6 will be published in 2010.
