"Once upon a time, in a dark city far away, there lived a boy called Walter, who had nothing but his name to call his own..." The handwritten book, with its strangely vivid illustrations, has been hidden in the old house for a long, long time. Tonight, four kids and their teacher will find it. Tonight, at last, the haunting story of Walter and the mysterious, tragic girl called Sparrow will be read - right to the very end. An extraordinary story within a story a mystery, a prophecy, a long-buried secret. And five people who will remember this night as long as they live.

For secondary school ages.
