The Ten Riddles of Eartha Quicksmith
When puzzle-loving Kip Bramley receives a cryptic invitation, delivered by a beetle-shaped drone that appears to be breathing, he has no idea that his world is about to change forever. Very soon he finds himself at Quicksmiths College of Strange Energy, hunting for riddles set 400 years earlier by a mysterious genius. But this isn’t any ordinary treasure hunt: as the clock counts down, Kip will need all the help he can get from his loyal new friends and his faithful pet flying squirrel, Pinky. With danger mounting it seems much more is at stake for Kip and his family than he could ever have imagined.
About the Author
Loris Owen grew up loving Roald Dahl, J.R.R. Tolkien, Tove Jansson, C.S. Lewis, Susan Cooper and Lewis Carroll. There’s nothing she enjoys more than adventure stories about other worlds and favourite contemporary MG authors include Philip Pullman and Louis Sachar.
Some interesting facts about Loris: she piloted a plane some time before she first got in the driving seat of a car; her fondest holiday memory is holding hands with a wild green turtle when diving in Oman; and her most-played song is Spanish Flea.
