The Secret of Platform 13

by Eva Ibbotson
Release date: 1994
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

Under Platform 13 at Kings Cross Station is hidden a quite remarkable secret. Every nine years a doorway opens to an amazing, fantastical island. Nine years ago, the island's baby prince was stolen on the streets of London. Now a rescue party, led by a wizard and an ogre, must find him and bring him back. But the kind prince has become a spoilt rich boy, who doesn't believe in magic and doesn't want to go home. Can they rescue him before time runs out – and the doorway disappears for ever?

"This kind of fun will never fail to delight." – Philip Pullman.
