The fourth brilliant adventure from Jaclyn Moriarty about Bronte Mettlestone and her friends, introducing a character from our world!

On Monday morning, Oscar is hanging out at the skatepark when he suddenly finds himself transported to a world where witches and water sprites really exist – and there are no aeroplanes, Netflix or even pizza!

He meets a friendly group of kids – Imogen Mettlestone Staranise and her sisters, their cousin Bronte and friend Alejandro – who are on an urgent and dangerous quest that must be completed by Friday at the latest, or there will be devastating consequences for a kingdom of elves – and not least, Oscar discovers he might never get home to his world ever again…
