Notes From Your Bookseller

Eleven-year-old twins Arthur and Rose are growing up and growing apart, until one day, their grandfather disappears. When the twins realize that Grandad has vanished right by the entrance to their old imaginary land called Roar, they team up to return to save Grandad and Roar itself. The Land of Roar is an epic tale of imagination and adventure that young readers will love escaping into.

Everyone remembers their secret imaginary world…but what if you discovered that yours was real? 

When Arthur and Rose were little, they were the heroes of Roar, a magical world they invented where the wildest creations of their imaginations roamed. Now that they’re eleven, Roar is just a distant memory. But it hasn’t forgotten them.

When their grandfather is spirited away into Roar by the villain who still haunts their nightmares, Arthur and Rose must go back to the world they’d almost left behind. And when they get there, they discover that Grandad isn’t the only one who needs their help.

This enchanting, action-packed novel is perfect for readers who’ve always dreamed of exploring Narnia and Neverland.
