A Novel

Bookseller Recommendation

D (A Tale of Two Worlds)

“ In this middle-reader novel, Dhikilo awakes one day to find that the letter D has disappeared. She seems to be the only one who notices and is certainly the only one still using D. How can a letter just disappear – and how can nobody else notice? Shortly after this bizarre and discomfiting turn of events, Dhikilo learns of the death of her beloved former teacher Professor Dodderfield. She is determined to attend his funeral, despite her parents’ reservations. Unusual circumstances at the funeral lead to a series of much more unusual events, and a quest to save the D. In a classic tale of good vs. evil reminiscent of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and A Wrinkle in Time, Dhikilo and her companion, Mrs. Robinson, travel to the land of Liminus, now ruled by the evil Gamp. Their wit and bravery serve them well in their encounters with numerous life-threatening obstacles and many interesting beings along the way. Full of adventure and with strong female protagonists, D (A Tale of Two Worlds) brings a message of hope and the value of perseverance. A valuable message for all”

Description

“Glorious. A story that will be found and enjoyed and dreamed about for years to come.”—Neil Gaiman

A stunning modern-day Dickensian fable and a celebration of friendship and bravery for freethinkers everywhere.

It all starts on the morning the letter D disappears from language. First, it vanishes from Dhikilo’s parents’ conversation at breakfast, then from the road signs outside and from her school dinners. Soon the local dentist and the neighbor’s dalmatian are missing, and even the Donkey Derby has been called off.

Though she doesn’t know why, Dhikilo is summoned to the home of her old history teacher Professor Dodderfield and his faithful Labrador, Nelly Robinson. And this is where our story begins.

Set between England and the wintry land of Liminus, a world enslaved by the monstrous Gamp and populated by fearsome, enchanting creatures, D (A Tale of Two Worlds) is told with simple beauty and warmth. Its celebration of moral courage and freethinking is a powerful reminder of our human capacity for strength, hope and justice.
