"Outer London, September 2016, and neighbouring eight-year-olds have homework: prepare a traditional story to perform with their families at a school festival. But Nathan's father thinks his son would be better off doing sums; Sky's mother's enthusiasm is as fleeting as her bank balance, and there's a threatening shadow hanging over poor Alka's family. Only Mandeep's fragile grandmother and new girl Xoriyo really understand the magical powers of storytelling. As national events and individual challenges jostle for the adults' attention, can these two bring everyone together to ensure the show will go on?"
The Magic Carpet is Jessica's second novel and already proving popular with readers of all ages. Jessica has written this month's 'Opinion' feature on the role of Grandparents. You will find her book on our 'Recently Added' Book Shelf.
