The History of Mischief
Out of stock
‘There is madness in it.’
‘Yes. But magic too.’
Following the death of their parents, Jessie and her older sister Kay move
to their grandmother’s abandoned house. One night they discover The History of Mischief
hidden beneath the floor: it is like no book they have ever seen.
From Ancient Greece to war-torn China, from the Ethiopian Empire to
Victorian England, the pages reveal a world of mischief and mystery, adventure
and adversity – stolen bones and fiery dragons, feisty philosophers and
tempestuous tyrants, shape-shifting trees and scorched scrolls.
But not everything is as it seems, in the book or in her life, and Jessie is
determined to find the truth. The
History has a history of its own. Unravelling its secrets might be
the biggest mischief of all.
