Part of STORYSTOCK

Join Pushkin Children’s Books and storyteller Jo Clayton, as they invite us into the world of Tonke Dragt ‒ author of the international bestselling children’s classic The Letter for the King, and forthcoming sequel The Secrets of the Wild Wood.

With a return for Knight Tiuri and his trusty friends – the much-loved characters from The Letter for the King – we enter the Kingdom of Dagonaut once more and finally discover the mystery of the Black Knight with the Red Shield. With readings and activities taken from both books, this promises to be an epic adventure you won’t want to miss.

The Secrets of the Wild Wood by Tonke Dragt, translated by Laura Watkinson is published by Pushkin Children’s Books on the 5th September, price £16.99 in hardback. A new edition of the bestselling The Letter for the King will be released simultaneously, price £7.99 pb

Jo Clayton is a storyteller, writer, performer and director with a love of all things magical and fantastic.  She has worked around the world as a performer and workshop leader and is former Practitioner in Residence for the Globe Theatre.

This is a past event
“There is definitely some strange alchemy with these two books of Tonke Dragt ... She's a writer that will now surely be ranked up there with the greats of children's literature.”
