A mechanical street map, a deserted slum, a church in ruins, and a football--four ordinary things that lead the Watson children into an extraordinary adventure in the land called Elidor, a magical world one step removed from our own. In pursuit of four ancient Treasures, the forces of evil have crossed over into our world. It falls to the Watson children to find the Treasures, seal the bridge between worlds, and guard the strayed unicorn Findhorn . . . even though their heroism may cost them everything.

ALAN GARNER is the award-winning author of Elidor, The Owl Service, and The Stone Book Quartet. He lives in Cheshire, England.
When the four Watson children go into a ruined church in a deserted neighborhood in Manchester, England, they enter the strange world of Elidor, a land being overrun by an evil power. The children reluctantly become the guardians of Elidor's treasures--a sword, a stone, a spear, and a cauldron--and return with them to their twentieth-century world. Now the Watsons, as well as Elidor, are threatened. Garard Green, a seasoned audiobook narrator, gives the children convincing childlike voices and varies tone and phrasing to effectively communicate their emotions, as well as their words. As the Watsons courageously fight off the evil that so relentlessly pursues them, Green makes the unbelievable seem all too believable, wrapping the listener in the magical, sinister atmosphere of Garner's well-crafted fantasy.
