There couldn’t possibly be another Timothy’s Gate novel, could there? I mean, in the first book, Timothy found the magical world of Challenrah behind a mysterious gate in the garden of the Grey Lady pub, near where he used to live – but now, he’s moved right across the world and will never see the Grey Lady’s garden again.
He’s having interesting times in his new home of Oceania, California. He’s made friends with a girl called Angela, and they’re working on a conservation project. It’s a good life – except that a girl called Madison wants to join in, and Tim’s not too sure about that. And he keeps having these dreams, where the grass is dying, and everything’s going wrong, in that once-upon-a-time magical land he used to know.
And then, on a walk along the Californian seashore with his dog, Jasper, he sees a gate that does not seem to go anywhere. Challenrah needs him again.
