"Arthur, I need your help," said the Cat.
"Waterwhistle needs your help. Those creatures out there work for Lady Eris and she's up to something. Something the village won't survive. Okay, yes, she's terrifying and, sure, she'll send those Yarnbulls to chop us up into little, tiny pieces if she figures out we're onto her. And, alright, flying a pirate ship can be a bit tricky if you've never done it before. But think of the adventure! After all, it's not every day you follow a talking cat out of a window, is it?"


Arthur Ness is a lonely, scared, young boy - evacuated from wartime London during the Blitz to live in the countryside village of Waterwhistle. There's a lot for him to get used to - the fields, the farm animals, the quiet.

But the more Arthur explores his new home, the more it becomes evident that the village's strangeness may not all be in his mind. It becomes more and more apparent that his host – the frightening Lady Eris – may be much more than she seems. Is she somehow responsible for the village’s dark silence?

Arthur has no idea what one, small, scared child can do against what appears to be such powerful magic. But then he is called on by a mysterious, feline visitor – with an offer that promises to open a world of excitement and adventure in the far off land of Arilon. Arthur finds he may just have a chance to challenge Lady Eris and save Waterwhistle from its mysterious fate after all. That is, if he can overcome his own fears…
