About The Author
Carole Wilkinson is an award-winning author of books for children. She has a longstanding fascination with dragons and is interested in the history of everything. Carole is a meticulous researcher who finds it difficult to stop researching and begin writing. She once searched for weeks to find out whether there were daffodils in Han Dynasty China.

A beautifully paced, closely observed and utterly compelling story about losing a dream and finding your passion... you're not reading this book, you're living it. -- Julia Lawrinson
This convincing and inspiring adventure smells of freedom... it's Wilkinson's excellent characterisation - peppered with a touch of romance and big dreams - that mostly underpins the narrative drive, making for an engrossing page-turner. * Bookseller+Publisher *
