Dido Twite is crossing the ocean towards her home in England on the Thrush when the Captain receives orders to search for Lord Herodsfoot who is on a quest to find rare games to amuse the bored English king. Dido is drawn into the search and finds herself battling through the jungles of the Pacific island of Aratu alongside the mysterious Dr Talisman, fighting off evil enemies with the magic of the Dilendi Tribe as they hunt for the secrets that are hidden within the royal residence of Limbo Lodge.
Joan Aiken's Wolves of Willoughby Chase saga has wooed thousands of readers, and Limbo Lodge fits into the saga between The Stolen Lake and The Cuckoo Tree. It is also an ingenious and wholly compelling read in its own right and once again proves that Joan Aiken is a mistress of the written word who can, with her limitless energy and imagination, draw her readers into a dazzling world of adventure that will quite simply leave them begging for more. (Ages 10 and over) --Susan HarrisonReview:

"A writer of wild humour and unrestrained imagination" (Oxford Companion to Children's Literature)
"A consummate story teller" (The Times)
"This is a racy tale with plenty of disgusting details" (Orna Mulcahy The Irish Times)
