Author(s): Bernard Beckett
In an abandoned house at the end of their street, twin brothers Stefan and Arlo discover a young girl hiding in its dusty shadows. Alice needs their help - her twin sister is locked in a cage suspended high above a mysterious mine in a strange parallel world-and she asks an impossible favour. Will they meet her on the next full moon at the entrance to a tunnel they both know doesn't exist?
Except that it does. And when they travel through it, Stefan and Arlo find themselves on a quest that will challenge all their ideas of who they are and what they can do.
The Tunnel of Dreams is a delightful middle-grade fantasy adventure about friendship and loyalty, and about dreaming big and achieving the impossible.
A hidden world, mysterious villains, two sets of twins and one epic competition set the scene for this magical middle-grade adventure by an award-winning NZ author.
