            The Loblolly boy wants his old life back and his plight is all the more poignant for his searching. In this stunning junior fiction fantasy sequel to The Loblolly Boy Michael convinces the unhappy boy at the Great Hall to Exchange with him once again, and Michael begins a magical... journey home. Complications, twists and stunts abound once the mischievous and perverse Sorcerer and the bumbling but well-meaning Gadget Man decide to assist in the bizarre turn of events. This is a disarmingly poignant yet magical and inventive tale written with the sure hand of a writer whose characters are as much grounded in the real world as the fantastic and whimsical whirl he creates around them. The rich narrative moves along at a good pace and is woven throughout with plenty of clues, leads and surprises, and much treacherous magic to keep young readers engaged.
