In an abandoned house at the end of their street, twin brothers Stefan and Arlo discover a young girl hiding in its dusty shadows. Alice needs their help-her twin sister is locked in a cage suspended high above a mysterious mine in a strange parallel world-and she asks an impossible favour. Will they meet her on the next full moon at the entrance to a tunnel they both know doesn't exist? Except that it does. And when they travel through it, Stefan and Arlo find themselves on a quest that will challenge all their ideas of who they are and what they can do. The Tunnel of Dreams is a delightful middle-grade fantasy adventure about friendship and loyalty, and about dreaming big and achieving the impossible.

Reviews for The Tunnel of Dreams

'A charmingly breezy middle fiction fantasy novel...[with] plenty of villainous twists...perfect for readers who aren't quite ready for Percy Jackson, and for when the later Harry Potter books are a little too scary.' * Books+Publishing * 'Escape into this absorbing magical adventure from a master storyteller.' * Kate Constable * 'Funny, raw, fantastic...The most exciting young adult writer writing in this country.' * Radio NZ *
