About the Book

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.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

"McLachlan does an excellent job of establishing the sibling tension before introducing the fantasy elements, and Rose’s desire to grow up and fit in feels as familiar and accessible as Arthur’s yearning to remain a child. This narrative’s sheer inventiveness marks it as distinct. The text and Mantle’s illustrations go wild with creativity. A sweet adventure and a paean to imagination and childhood innocence." - Kirkus Reviews

"Mantle's whimsical black-and-white illustrations enhance this playful, Peter Pan–like tale of sibling rivalry and affection. A series starter with heart." - Booklist
