Written by Toby Ibbotson, son of the bestselling author Eva Ibbotson, this exceptional middle grade epic is captivating, heartfelt and brilliant in equal measure. When the hurricane finally came, it came quite suddenly to the town where Simon lived. A few gusts of wind pushed lea...ves around on the pavements, and some big drops of rain pitter-pattered on the roofs of parked cars and bus shelters. But then there was a stillness. It was so still that it seemed odd - as though the wind was taking a great big deep breath. And then... It began. On the night of a terrible storm when Simon discovers a mysterious object that has lay hidden beneath a centuries-old tree, he instantly knows that it's special. But that's not the half of it - because that doesn't even factor in how Simon met Judy, the search for Judy's missing father, the journey to Sweden, the crash, the fight, everyone they meet along the way, and the fact that, somehow, Simon's unexpected find turns out to be useful in the most truly unexpected way. Beautifully written, with characters who will tug at your heart, The Unexpected Find is Toby Ibbotson's break-through masterpiece that's a classic in the making.
