The Second Forever (How to Live Forever #2)

Author(s): Colin Thompson

10-13 | Fantasy

A return to the enchantment and wonder of the world Thompson first introduced in the award-winning How to Live Forever

When Peter and his friend Festival destroyed the book called How To Live Forever so it could no longer work its spell, they didn't know it would have disastrous consequences. Now, Peter's world is in the worst drought ever--and Festival's world, inside the museum, is drowning. The only solution is to recreate the book but can they reverse the water flow? And if they recreate the evil book, can they hide it so it can never be read again?
