Four powerful stories of adventure and imagination--in this world and beyond When Keith's father dies, his mom sells their house and takes Keith with her to live in Scotland. He misses his dad and his home, but most of all he misses Melly, a girl whose father is a lion tamer, and who seemed to come from another world. Keith is in a park in Edinburgh when he sees a girl who looks exactly like Melly, and whose father once worked for the circus, taming lions. To save his best friend's life, Keith embarks on a perilous quest to untangle the mystery of Melly's doppelgänger. In these four tales, Peter Dickinson writes with clarity and wit about young people in extraordinary situations, characters whose adventures take place across space, time, and the boundaries of their souls. This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Peter Dickinson including rare images from the author's collection.
