ALBION  
Aug. 13, 2017
Author:  Rachel Tucker
Category:  Children's: Fantasy
Description:  Inspired by dark children's classics such as Alice in Wonderland and Roald Dahl's Matilda, Albion tells the story of a young girl named Tess and her adventures in an alternate world where the myths and legends of London, past and present, come to life. In this fantasy adventure novel, those famous London landmarks were granted of magic powers in another forms, told in another stories far different from the familiar normal. A boring old clock tower becomes a clunky, clockwork-powered machine where time runs forward and backward at random. Instead of a train, the tube is a system of colorful serpents which swallow their passengers and take them via underground tunnels wherever they need to go.
Along with her two new friends, a suicidal Queen and the cowardly Spring-Heeled Jack, Tess must set out on a journey to the Tower if she wants to save Albion Kingdom and return home. Humorous, funny, dark, thrilling and actions, Albion is also a story about the courage, friendship, responsibilities and motivation.
