The Extraordinary Adventures of Alice Tonks by Emily Kenny

Alice Tonks CoverA story about finding your voice, friendship and unlikely heroes.

Sometimes all it takes is a little magic to find your voice…

Alice Tonks is eager to make friends at boarding school, but she’s always found it hard to fit in. Then she discovers she is a switcher and can talk to animals.

As she starts to explore her newfound abilities, to her horror she learns that creatures are going missing. Only Alice holds the key to solving the mystery, but she’ll need to harness her full powers first. And to do that she’ll need a bit of help from her new friends – animal and human alike.

 

‘A tale of friendship with an autistic protagonist, by an autistic author, this promises to be a great new series.’ Bookseller

‘Everyone says stories have heart but The Extraordinary Adventures of Alice Tonks has heart, soul and so much spirit.’ Lindsay Galvin, author of Darwin’s Dragons
