The arrival of Federico Lampo and his travelling circus brings a new threat to Drabville when the children are kidnapped and transported to the grim world of the Conjuors' Realm. Lord Aldor, assisted by Ringmaster Lampo and the vicious Contessa Bombasta, is plotting to conquer the fairy province of Mirth...
The children embark on a quest to warn the Queen of Mirth, encountering some fearsome obstacles, not least the ferocious Grin Bandits and their tooth-extracting apparatus.
As the day of battle draws near, Milli and Ernest realise that if Lord Aldor defeats them, theirs won't be the only lives at stake...
About the Author
Alexandra Emily Adornetto was born on 18 April 1992 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. She is the daughter of an English teacher and a Drama teacher and attended, in her own words, "many" schools including MacRobertson Girls' High School, Ruyton Girls' School, Korowa Anglican Girls' School and Eltham College. She says she was 13 years old and on school holidays when she decided to become a recluse and started writing her first book for young adults, entitled The Shadow Thief. She did some research into Australian publishing houses, making sure she followed all the submission guidelines exactly, and then sent her manuscript to HarperCollins. She has said that it took HarperCollins about twenty-four weeks to get back to her asking to publish her book.
She is currently splitting her time between Australia and the USA, while she studies and writes. In the future she hopes to combine novel writing and acting as Alexandra Grace. Her passions include old-school country music, theology, singing and performing.
