Dragons, magic, golden cities and kidnapped children pitting their wits against an evil Magus intent on personal wealth make this a magical and unputdownable adventure story by the acclaimed author of Tanglewreck

'A beautifully crafted tale ... it's obvious in every word, every plot twist, and every character that Winterson had fun writing The Battle of the Sun. This book radiates enjoyment, and the reader can bask in it. I was mesmerised by craft of an endlessly inventive author writing at the height of her power' Guardian

Jeanette Winterson's first novel for children, Tanglewreck, was widely admired. Here in her second, readers will once more relish her free-spirited literary inventiveness and style. Jeanette won the Whitbread for her first book Oranges are Not the Only Fruit. She lives in Oxfordshire and travels extensively lecturing about her work.
