Escaping from constant bullying at school, Jack buries himself in a wildlife book given to him by his father. At the frozen lake, he finds much more than he expected. He is drawn into a thrilling and dangerous adventure where fantastical creatures and unrelenting enemies lead Jack to discover the truth about his father and the mythical Silent Mountain. Bringing together a strange and beautiful alternative world and topical ecological themes, with an engaging hero and a cool accomplice, Silent Mountain will appeal to 9- to 12-year-old readers. ***REVIEWS*** The idea of a book leading to a fantastic adventure isnt new, but in Michelle Briscombes capable hands it turns into something quite magical as our hero is drawn into a world he could barely have dreamed of. Beautifully illustrated by Terry Cooper, and with elements of conservation and an awareness of ecological and wildlife themes, this is an excellent read. (Books Monthly)
