Thomas doesn't really mind. It's been like that ever since he can remember. Then one day there's a dwarf in his house, and his life changes forever. Thomas is summoned to the Hidden World ndash; a magical place responsible for dreams, music, and imagination in the Obvious World (the human world). Extraordinary adventures await Thomas and his shape-shifter friends, caught up in the unpredictable rivalries between the different races of this world. He soon discovers his true talents and emerges as a Rymer, able to take his place as a link between the worlds of imagination and magic and the everyday. Thomas comes to understand both, and his "weirdness" becomes greatness indeed.' Source: bookseller's website.

'When a mysterious island emerges from the River Riddle, panic spreads through Owlchurch. It's the Island of Ghosts, where ghosts of past Rymers dwell in afterlife. Its appearance means only one thing: a living Rymer is in mortal danger. Only one known Rymer lives. Thomas Trew.

'A plan is quickly hatched to send Thomas back to London where he is safe from the dangers of the Hidden World, but Thomas has other ideas. He loves living in Owlchurch - now his real home - and can't bear to leave all his new friends for boring, dreary London. Thomas soon devises his own daring plan to search the island to seek his mother, Mab, a past Rymer whose ghost must live there. And so awaits a dark and dangerous adventure as Thomas enters the island's door . . .'. Source: bookseller's website.
