'A mind-blowing, puzzle-packed, epic adventure ... such a fantastic book, packed with so many ideas ... it’s hard to sum it up in one sentence!'
Kieran Larwood, author of Podkin One-Ear and the Five Realms series
Kip Bramley has a feeling that there is something more out there, beyond everyday life; something big, something incredible.
So, when he receives a cryptic invitation, delivered by a beetle-shaped drone that appears to be breathing, he doesn’t hesitate. The clues lead to Quicksmiths College, where a new reality awaits – where everyday things are extraordinary, and strange energies make the impossible possible. Soon Kip and his pet flying squirrel, Pinky, find themselves hunting for riddles set 400 years ago by a mysterious genius. But this isn't any ordinary treasure hunt: as the clock counts down, the danger rises...
Will Kip and his new friends outwit the gathering forces of darkness and get to the Ark of Ideas in time to change their world forever?
