Believable fantasy by an award-winning author for 8 to 12 year olds - grounded in the here and now - and charged with a dangerous, menacing edge.
A flute that will only play one mysterious song? A strange old man in a wheel chair somehow rejuvenated by this music? A leap from a window into a strange and often frightening world where nobody can be trusted and from which there seems to be no escape?
NZ Post Children's Book Award-winning author James Norcliffe's The Enchanted Flute sweeps Becky Pym and Johnny Cadman from the realities of modern day school and the suburbs into an ancient Arcadian world where an old battle is about to be reignited. The flute Becky's mother bought at a pawn shop proves to be a catalyst, a prize all forces seek.
Lost, pursued, Becky and Johnny are swept along by events out of their control until the final confrontation between ancient enemies.
