When the worst hurricane for centuries
sweeps through the British Isles, a 200-year-old giant beech tree in a
country park in the county of Limerick in Ireland comes crashing to the
ground, making Spriggy, a mischievous tree-sprite, homeless.
Spriggy takes up residence in Gilly’s
head, and under the guidance of the wizard Merlin, Master of Space and
Time, the tree-sprite takes Gilly and her brothers Sam and Jonathan on
many adventures of the mind.
Under the Merlin Spell is the prequel to
Margaret Mann’s much loved The Merlin Set-Up. It will be enjoyed by all
who have followed Sam, Gilly, Tom and Lucy through their other
adventures, and by everyone who loves a good story.
Written with humour and insight, this
book will be an inspiration to all who yearn for a better world.
