A stunning Christmas classic is about forgotten children, the power of nature to heal us and a girl who will climb mountains in search for a place to call home.
Growing up in vibrant, crowded Nairobi, Makena has only one dream: to climb Mount Kenya like her hero, her mountain guide father. But when her beautiful world is shattered, she finds that in the city’s dark places there are a thousand ways to fall, each more deadly than any crevasse. In a world of strangers, does she dare trust Snow, whose ballet dreams are haunted by a past she’s still running from? And is the sparkling fox friend or foe?
After a fresh start in the Scottish Highlands turns bad, Makena flees to the mountains. But will they betray her or be the making of her?
Anyone ever told you that you’re too clever for your own good, Laura Marlin?’
With her arch-nemesis, Mr A, safely behind bars, Laura Marlin can’t wait to relax on a school trip to Australia. But hours after arriving, a seemingly threatening supernatural message makes her fear for her own safety. As the group tours the Northern wilderness, mysteries and near-disasters haunt them, but only Laura believes they’re connected. Can she figure out what’s real and what’s an illusion … before it’s too late?
One of the most special moments of my life was writing Last Place You Look with my beautiful friend, Australian singer-songwriter Jane Kitto Andersson. The song was partly inspired by friendship between Martine and Jemmy in The White Giraffe, but it’s also about the connections between us all.
Jane did me the huge honour of asking Australian horse whisperer Janettle Wilson, and her incredible horses and dogs to star in the video. Last year, when I was researching The Secret of Supernatural Creek in Australia’s Northern Territory, I spent time with them. It was unforgettable.
