PRAISE FOR A BOX OF GARGOYLES: “Nesbet’s style is both animated and animating...all elements of her story fairly quiver with life.”

Informationen zum Autor

Anne Nesbet teaches classes on silent films and Russian novels at UC Berkeley. The author of The Cabinet of Earths and A Box of Gargoyles, she lives near San Francisco with her husband, three daughters, and one irrepressible dog.



Klappentext

Up in the magical, wrinkled hills in the village of Lourka, almost-twelve-year-old Linny breaks an ancient law. In Lourka, girls are forbidden to touch the town's namesake musical instrument before their twelfth birthday, or risk being spirited away. But Linny can't resist the melodic call of the lourka's strings, so she builds one herself.

When the curse meant for her strikes her best friend instead, Linny must leave her home behind to try to set things right. If you leave the wrinkled hills, you will never find your way back—but Linny will risk everything to rescue her friend. With her father's young apprentice, Elias, Linny travels from the wrinkled country to the scientific land of the Plain, where she finds herself at the center of an age-old battle between the logical and the magical. Can Linny keep the fractured land from falling apart—and save her best friend?

The Wrinkled Crown is a tale of magic, music, war, and friendship from master storyteller Anne Nesbet.
