From Costa-shortlisted superstar a highly anticipated standalone adventure about what happens when you find a tiny living breathing civilization on the floor of your school dorm room. Max is used to spending time alone – it’s difficult to make friends in a big chaotic school when you’re deaf. He prefers to give his attention to the little things in life . . . like making awesome detailed replica models. Then Mr Darrow the school caretaker and fellow modeller goes missing. Max must follow his parting instruction: ‘Go to my room. You’ll know what to do.’ There on the floor he finds a pile of sand . . . and in the sand is Mr Darrow’s latest creation . . . a tiny boy no bigger than a raisin Luke Prince of the Blues. And behind the tiny boy . . . millions of others – a thriving bustling sprawling civilization! ‘A fast-paced and enjoyable adventure that encourages readers to appreciate the small things in life.’ Kirkus ‘A delightful whiff of Monty Python . . . Ross Montgomery’s writing is often pure Douglas Adams.’ SFX ‘Totally off-the-wall story. The world building is superb.’ The Bookbag ‘A funny well plotted tale.’ Sunday Express ‘Marvellously funny and original . . . it’s the tiny details that make the story work.’ Financial Times ‘An inventive and funny adventure.’ Inis Children Books Ireland
