Publisher's Summary

When Arthur and Rose were little, they were heroes in the Land of Roar, an imaginary world that they found by climbing through the folding bed in their grandad’s attic. 

Roar was filled with things they loved - dragons, mermaids, ninja wizards and adventure - as well as things that scared them (including a very creepy scarecrow)....

Now the twins are 11, Roar is just a memory. But when they help Grandad clean out the attic, Arthur is horrified as Grandad is pulled into the folding bed and vanishes. Is he playing a joke? Or is Roar...real? 

The Land of Roar is reminiscent of Peter Pan, The Neverending Story and Jumanji - perfect for readers of Nevermoor and Wizards of Once.  

Jenny McLachlan is the author of several acclaimed teen novels including Flirty Dancing, Stargazing for Beginners and Truly, Wildly, Deeply

Before Jenny became a writer, she was Head of English in a secondary school; she now loves visiting schools as an author and delivering funny and inspiring talks and workshops. 

When Jenny isn’t thinking about stories or writing stories, she enjoys living by the seaside, cycling and running over the South Downs. The Land of Roar is Jenny’s middle-grade debut.

My 8 year old boy loved it

Fantastic adventure book. Very original story. Chapters are short and keep the pace fast and the story engaging for younger readers

Read. Don’t listen.

An excellent story ruined in this format by the wingeingly awful delivery of the reader.

Fantastic book that the kids and I enjoy!

We have been listening to this book on our car trips, as soon as we head towards the car the kids (9f, 7f, 6m) are already asking for The Land of Roar! It's such a fun book and there are a lot of laugh out loud moment's, i would happily recommend this to my friends with young kids. I'll be getting the next book soon.
