The ​first fantasy novel in the Talendia series. A fantastic world hidden beneath our own. A resourceful heroine and hero with a mystery to unravel. The story began in Merrymead, a fictional town in Cornwall, where a young boy, Samuel Lucas, vanished after a stormy night chasing a cat in his uncle's garden and discovered a staircase in the trunk of an old mulberry tree. The only clue to his disappearance was his book „Tales from Talendia” that he had received from his uncle the same day. Thirty years later, a young and troubled girl called Frida, who lives in London with her single mother meets a mysterious bookseller who sells an old book with the same title to her. Frida quickly notices that the book is dedicated to Samuel Lucas. The same night, Frida and her mother have strange visitors who can turn into birds and are seeking Frida out.

A. E. Colmer: The Lost Boy

Reading this children literature as an adult was a mistery for me. I felt as a child with flying and unlimited imaginations again.
Talendia is a fantastic and hidden world and the story about Frida, the brave little girl and Samuel, the lost but also hero boy is gripping. The plot is well written and exciting full of uninvited occurence and unusual inhabitants like witches, cantaurs, dwarves, etc.
I was special happy that finally I could read an empowering book for children with full of strong female characters and no gender stereotypes: Frida is one of the most courageous one but the other females also play a powerful and defining role as well. They could be an ideal model for the young little girls to feel the „girl power”!
The story ends on a cliffhanger and I am looking forward to read the next book!
