Author Ruth Ann Homesabout this book: This wonderfully entertaining middle grade fantasy, published by Rigby in 1984, is now an updated eBook available on Amazon.

Eleven year old Kate Brooks narrates the story, which begins when her father buys a house from a mysterious Mr Fombus. As the family arrive at the house, Kate's younger brother Matthew is terrified when a terracotta dragon on the roof suddenly stares at him with eyes 'like green lights'.

Later, when Matthew vanishes through an invisible gateway to another world, Kate and her older brother, Patrick, feel compelled to follow, but retrieving Matthew from Zanfree is far from easy.

In this strange and beautiful world, two nations are at war, but it is a war waged with magic, not guns and bombs, and no real harm is done. All this changes when Matthew meets the cunning Wizard Crump, and unwittingly sets him on a course to create an immensely powerful bomb.

With Zanfree facing unimaginable danger, inspired magic from Wizard Fombus and the dragon, Quintoc, and a great effort by Kate, Patrick and Matthew will be needed.
