Escape to the River Sea - Emma Carroll

We are looking forward to welcoming your child and their class to StoryLand, the children's strand of Hexham Book Festival. 

They will join the Queen of Historical Fiction, Emma Carroll, as she introduces Escape to the River Sea, a compelling new novel inspired by Eva Ibbotson's bestselling, classic masterpiece, Journey to the River Sea. 

War is over and Rosa Sweetman, a Kindertransport girl, embarks on an adventure full of danger in search of giant sloths, jaguars and a place for herself.
