Over Sea, Under Stone
Publisher: Red Fox
On holiday in Cornwall, Simon, Jane and Barney discover an ancient map in the attic of the Grey House, where they are staying with their much-loved but mysterious Great Uncle Merry. But this apparently innocent discovery soon leads them to an extraordinary quest to discover an ancient grail, which sets them in the midst of an ancient and terrible battle between the forces of darkness and light.
The first book in Susan Cooper's magnificent The Dark is Rising sequence combines elements of a traditional children's adventure story with fantasy and myth. Full of suspense and magic, it will captivate young readers imaginations, and leave them eager to read the other four books in this extraordinary series.
