The Nowhere Emporium
When Daniel hides in a dusty old shop to get away from school bullies he finds himself apprenticed to Mr Silver, and the Nowhere Emporium.
Within its labyrinth of rooms, which appear never-ending and hold wonders beyond imagination, Daniel begins to learn how to create his own magical rooms while making friends with Mr Silver’s daughter Ellie. But then Mr Silver disappears, and the Nowhere Emporium starts to crumble. Can Daniel and Ellie save it and find Mr Silver?
Magical ideas and spellbinding descriptions make this story a world you really wish you could be part of. I love the idea of being able to write your imagined ideas down in an enchanted book and have them become reality in a room you could visit. There’s edge-of-yourseat adventures, great friendships and an evil villain! What more could you want from a story that’s as much fun for adventure seekers as it is for book-lovers?
