Faint edgewear,spine edges rubbed, page edges pale yellow; looks unread. 'Island of the Aunts' illustrated by Kevin Hawkes, 'The Secret of Platform 13' illustrated by Sue Porter. ; This omnibus edition has two magical children's books. In 'Island of the Aunts' (also published in the UK as 'Monster Mission') "three children have been dramatically kidnapped by some mysterious, mad aunts. But Myrtle, Coral, and Etta are far from killers - they need the children for a special mission. The secret island where they live is a sanctuary for magical creatures - mermaids, selkies, the amazing boobrie bird and even the great Kraken himself, and the kidnapped children help to care for them. But the Island of Monsters has become the target of some dangerous villains who want to turn it into a theme park."

"Under Platform13 at Kings Cross Station there is a secret door that leads to a magical island...It appears only once every nine years. And when it opens, four mysterious figures step into the streets of London. A wizard, an ogre, a fey and a young hag have come to find the prince of their kingdom, stolen as a baby nine years before. But the prince has become a horrible rich boy called Raymond Trottle who doesn't understand magic and is determined not to be rescued."; For ages 8-12 (and adults that enjoy magical stories).This author recommended by several members of the DES email discussion group. 'The Secret of Platform 13' recommended by Philip Pullman. Both books are recommended by us.
