About this Book

The final part of Andrew Dalton's charming Malplaquet trilogy is again set in the landscape gardens at Stowe and concludes the fascinating adventures of the tiny Lilliputians whom we first met in The Temples of Malplaquet.

That first book introduced us to the young teenager Jamie Thompson, his elderly friend 'Granny,' and a whole host of tiny people who have been secretly living and hiding in the mysterious gardens for centuries especially the clever but eccentric Nigriff, and the bumbling but good-natured General Thorclan.

The little characters have enemies of course, who pursued them relentlessly in the second book, The Lost People of Malplaquet Malplaquet, and as the dangers increase in this final part it seems likely that the Lilliputians will never achieve their New Empire. But they will never give up and there are plenty of surprises along the way ... for everyone.

A quinessentially English story, inspired by Johnathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels and T.H. White's Mistress Masham's Repose, these books are written primarily for children aged 814, but contain plenty for older readers to enjoy as well. The wonderful and gripping world of Malplaquet is brought to life as delightfully as ever by Jonny Boatfield's illustrations.
