Lose yourself in this phenomenal debut novel, The Whisperwicks: The Labyrinth of Lost and Found by Jordan Lees which is out now, published by Puffin!

A boy who doesn’t believe in magic. An impossible world that will change his mind.

First book of the trilogy, the novel starts with a crack in the wall. When Benjamiah Creek receives a mysterious gift in the post – a doll that can transform into a bird – he is led into the impossible (and most definitely magical) world of Wreathenwold, where dark secrets are lost amongst a vast labyrinth of streets. He soon finds himself in a dangerous quest alongside the fierce and brilliant Elizabella, who is determined to solve the disappearance of her missing brother. Will Benjamiah ever find his way home and discover his puzzling connection with this strange, enchanted world?

The Whisperwicks: The Labyrinth of Lost and Found was swept up by Puffin in a seven-figure pre-empt back in 2022 with international rights sold over ten territories including Germany, Italy and France.

A breathtaking debut – I love the heartfelt friendship, fantastical worldbuilding, and sheer amount of warmth that runs throughout this book.
