Meet Julia and her brand new book, The Secret of the Cave.
Award-winning UAE-based author, Julia Johnson, is famed for her gripping stories about the history, culture and wildlife of the region, from the Kirkus-starred book The Leopard Boy, to winner of the International Children’s Book award, The Turtle Secret.
In her trademark warm storytelling style, Julia will transport us to the beautiful, and sometimes dangerous, mountainous regions in her brand new book, The Secret of the Cave.
About the Book:
Set in a remote mountain village in the grip of a deadly drought, a young girl sets out to look for berries. She falls into a deep, dark cave, where shapes and shadows lurk and bats abound. Cold and frightened, she desperately wishes for the comforting figure of her cousin Hilal, but he is far away and cannot help her. It seems that no one can. But in that eerie cavern lit only by the occasional glimmer of glow worms, she comes across an owl and a mysterious child who lead her to a discovery which could save her people ... if only she could get out and reach them
