The Key to Rondo, Emily Rodda , single work children's fiction children's fantasy

The old music box, with its strict rules, has been carefully handed down through Leo's family for hundreds of years. Painted scenes of villages, mysterious forests, a castle on a hill and a queen in a long blue gown decorate its sides. An astounding secret is hidden beneath its gleaming black lid. Now it is Leo's music box, and although he respects the rules, his least favourite cousin, Mimi Langlander, does not. When the rules are broken, Leo's ordered life is changed forever as he and Mimi plunge together into a thrilling quest in the fantastic world of Rondo.

The Wizard of Rondo, Emily Rodda , single work children's fiction children's fantasy
Leo and Mimi return to Rondo determined to stay out of trouble and away from their old enemy the Blue Queen. On meeting with their old friends, the two Langlanders discover that much has changed since their last visit. Bertha, the model pig, has become a local celebrity and the slippery Spoiler seems to have vanished. When the Quest team are offered a job in nearby Hobnox to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the Wizard Bing and prove that Simon, Bing's one time apprentice turned giant mushroom, is innocent, Leo and Mimi are quickly caught up in the case. But something sinister is lurking in the skies above Hobnox. The legendary Strix's castle has been sighted a mystical cloud palace where the Strix's victims are forever imprisoned and the Quest team suspect it has something to do with their investigation. Despite their good intentions, Leo and Mimi soon find themselves knee deep in trouble and sinking fast. (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
