Beautiful Young Adult fiction by first-time novelist, Joan Dewar. Set in Orkney, this hypnotic, beautifully written tale transports young readers to another world of myths and magic.

Before Wolfie and I flew off on the broomstick into the cosmos, I was already aware of how small and vulnerable our planet is, but only when I saw it on the darkest of nights from space, in all its fragility and beauty did I realise that humankind's most urgent task is to take responsibility for our Earth, and cherish and preserve it.
