Trapped in Time

French Writer and Illustrator  Timothée De Fombelle The Book of Pearl

Translated by Sarah Ardizzone and Sam Gordon

Walker Books 2016  $19.99pb 367pp

ISBN 978 1 4063 6462 0

Themes:  Fairies/ Imagination/ First Love/ Memories/ Time Traps

A ‘gentle’, intricate and compelling love story about a young man who lives in the world of today and whose great love is trapped in another time but of whom his memory is fading fast. Not a book for every young reader or indeed to read aloud to a large group but for imaginative readers of all ages it will be an experience to remember.

Google the writer’s name for other titles  - all equally enchanting and all just as perfectly crafted.  
Year 7 up/ Age 11 up – and adults

Timothée De Fombelle – born Paris 1973 (Photographer untraced) 

(Sorry about the size of the font - this wretched porgamme has a mind of its own  and I never know how things are going to turn out. BM
