Let’s find out what Peter has instore for us in this stunning adventure.

Peter grew up in South London in a rambling Victorian house with three cats, two dogs, one sister, an antique-dealer dad and an artist mum. He is a BAFTA-winning animator, as well as a writer and film-maker. Like Lily and Robert, he loves adventures and reading penny dreadfuls, but wishes dearly that he had a mechanical fox called Malkin. Shadowsea is his fourth novel.

Thank you to Peter and Usborne for inviting me to host the cover reveal. ‘Shadowsea,’ is available to pre-order now online or from any good bookshop.
