Event Information

Mila and her sisters live with their brother Oskar in a forest cabin in the snow.  One night, a fur-clad stranger arrives, seeking shelter for himself and his men. By next morning, they’ve gone - taking Oskar with them. The girls set out on a quest to bring Oskar back, crossing frozen wild-lands to find a way past an eternal winter.

Join the bestselling author of The Girl of Ink & Stars (Waterstones Children’s Book Prize Winner 2017) as she shares the inspiration behind her spellbinding wintry folk tale and reads a snippet from the book. 

…a mesmerising debut of maps, myths and girls of enormous courage
