Young magician Gywn and his friend Nia have been warned to stay away from Emlyn Llewelyn, the strange boy who claims his mother lives on the moon. And yet, a mysterious magic continues to draw them to him. But why?
It's up to Gwyn and Nia to solve the mystery, with the help of Arianwen, the Snow Spider. Readers will race along with Gwyn in this fantastic magical adventure to rescue Emlyn and his family before it's too late!

Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! It was lovely that the story moved away from Gwyn (the main character in the first book) and encompassed other children (even though Gwyn played a major part in it). The story was every bit as magical and filled with mystery as the first.

This is one of those series that never really dates, despite being very much of its time – the magic of the story, the attractiveness of the characters and the reader’s sympathy and involvement in their adventures makes this a must-read for all adults who would like a little of their childhood sparkle rekindled, and also for children who enjoy a bit of whimsy.
