The iron wheel began to spin, slowly at first, then faster and faster. The room grew darker. As the light lessened, so did the sound. Deeba and Zanna stared at each other in wonder. The noise of the cars and vans and motorbikes outside grew tinny ...The wheel turned off all the cars and turned off all the lamps. It was turning off London. Zanna and Deeba are two girls leading ordinary lives, until they stumble into the world of UnLondon, an urban Wonderland where all the lost and broken things of London end up ...and some of its lost and broken people too. Here discarded umbrellas stalk with spidery menace, carnivorous giraffes roam the streets, and a jungle sprawls beyond the door of an ordinary house.UnLondon is under siege by the sinister Smog and its stink-junkie slaves; it is a city awaiting its hero. Guided by a magic book that can't quite get its facts straight, and pursued by Hemi the half-ghost boy, the girls set out to stop the poisonous cloud before it burns everything in its path. They are joined in their quest by a motley band of UnLondon locals, including Brokkenbroll, boss of the broken umbrellas, Obaday Fing, a couturier whose head is an enormous pincushion, and an empty milk carton called Curdle. The world of UnLondon is populated by astonishing frights and delights that will thrill the imagination.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

The book is now as a wishlist- and surprise-book on its way to Sweden.

I just want to say "Thank You" / "Dankeschön" / "Merci" with this book and package to a bookcrosser from Sweden for including me in another fine RABCK (I love my country exchange - RABCK by Foxears).

So I hope the package will bring some smiles over the miles! Happy journey and happy reading!

Forgot to write here when I read this book. I did enjoy it. It was slow in the beginning, and I didn't enjoy it that much at first, but it was three years since I read this book and the story has really stayed with me! I will soon send this on a new adventure! I would have done it sooner, but better late than never.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Sent to the winner of the book and bookmark sweepstake.

I made a bookmark to match the book. It was made from a squared paper, coloured with yellow and redbrown watercolor, and the pictures where drawn with pencil and filled in with black felt pen. The border was inked with black chalk ink and the paper was backed with a beige paper and then laminated with transparent tape.
