May 2024 Book of the Month

The first book in a charming new adventure series from Abi Elphinstone, Ember Spark and the Thunder of Dragons is suffused in the wonderful, classic notion that magic might be found all around us — hidden in plain sight, awaiting discovery by those who are so- attuned. That’s exactly the case with Ember Spark, an inquisitive ten-year-old who has “an unusual gift with animals”.

While Ember lives in a sleepy village called Yawn, and has felt much unease and heartbreak since her dad left the family home, she finds thrills and inspiration through reading the adventures of her comic book heroine, Gutsy Wonder. Then, on one typically humdrum day, the strange sighting of what appears to be a hamster stranded at sea sees Ember capitulated into an adventure to rival that of her heroine. It turns out that the hamster is definitely not a hamster, and Ember has been chosen to become the apprentice to Rusty Fizzbang, a vet to magical beasts, no less.

Alongside the thrill of Ember’s race-against-time quest to come to the aid of a baby dragon, and the joy of being immersed in a dazzlingly magical world, young readers are also sure to engage with the true-to-life portrayal of an unlikely friendship between two outsiders, and the promise that magic is “right here. Under our noses. In our forests and rivers. In our oceans and caves.”
