“What I am offering is not a holiday. It is an opportunity. A challenge. You must show me I was correct to bring you here, that you are, as I suspect, special.”
So I bought this kids book The Nowhere Emporium and surprisingly found it a really good read. It had obvious influences from Mr Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, just with slighter darker plot points.
It tells the story of a skilled magician who meets a young boy with magic potential and takes him in on a journey in his time travelling emporium. Long story short, I thought, oh my god, these characters, but billdip.
