Imagine one morning you awoke to find that the letter D had simply disappeared. Gone from conversation, books, signs … even things that start with the letter D have mysteriously vanished! And thus begins a wonderfully strange, imaginative, and thought-provoking adventure that you will not be able to put down. D (A Tale of Two Worlds) is a modern fable that evokes the magic of Narnia, Oz and Wonderland. A fantastical story of identity and moral courage that grips you like a thriller!
A stunning modern-day Dickensian fable and a celebration of friendship and bravery for freethinkers everywhere.
It all starts on the morning the letter D disappears from language. First, it vanishes from Dhikilo’s parents’ conversation at breakfast, then from the road signs outside and from her school dinners. Soon the local dentist and the neighbor’s dalmatian are missing, and even the Donkey Derby has been called off.
Though she doesn’t know why, Dhikilo is summoned to the home of her old history teacher Professor Dodderfield and his faithful Labrador, Nelly Robinson. And this is where our story begins.
Set between England and the wintry land of Liminus, a world enslaved by the monstrous Gamp and populated by fearsome, enchanting creatures, D (A Tale of Two Worlds) is told with simple beauty and warmth. Its celebration of moral courage and freethinking is a powerful reminder of our human capacity for strength, hope and justice.
