Mirrorscape

by Mike Wilks
£6.99   paperback  Egmont Childrens Books (2007)

Mirrorscape by Mike Wilks Mirrorscape is a thrilling and inventive adventure for all fantasy fans, children and adults alike. The book is the first in a trilogy and will be succeeded by Mirrorstorm and Mirrorshade.
 
In this his debut novel, the artist and illustrator Mike Wilks brings his extraordinary visual imagination from the canvas to the page!
 
Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime, Melkin Womper is apprenticed to a master painter, Ambrosius Blenk. Son of a village weaver, Mel is over-awed by the masterís richly coloured and vividly detailed paintings. He is particularly amazed by the colours, because there are no colours back home. To have colour in your life, you have to buy the Pleasure, and the sinister scarlet-robed Fifth Mystery owns the rights to such Pleasures.
 
Soon, Mel and his new friends Ludo and Wren find themselves caught in a power struggle between the Mystery and the master. One that involves stepping through paintings into a world where the bizarre is commonplace and all logic is irrelevant. A world where angels, pyramid mazes, imaginary monsters, talking houses and - most importantly - the simple paintbrush all combine to form a hugely original and deeply compelling fantasy.
 
If Bosch, Escher or Dadd had written a childrenís book, this would be it!
