Fablehouse is a spectacular magical adventure that combines seemingly unlikely heroes with Arthurian legend. Perfect for fans of Amari and the Night Brothers, this is an empowering read that shows all children have somewhere they belong, with a history and identity that can be theirs to own. E L Norry is a thrilling new talent, who, having been through the care system in Wales, brings Own Voices heart and authenticity to this extraordinary adventure. She says: 'I always felt that I belonged everywhere and nowhere, an inhabitant of multiple worlds and identities: mixed-race, Welsh, Jewish never quite accepted or acceptable. But I was always hopeful and curious, and curiosity found me and my imaginary friends’. E L Norry’s event will look at re-writing traditional tales to make them inclusive for all readers to enjoy and the magic of storytelling. Her event is for 9+ readers.
'Fablehouse' by E. L. Norry
Fablehouse, a mysterious mansion surrounded by ancient woodland, is Heather's new home. Roaming the countryside with some of the other mixed-race kids who are in care there, she finds a stone tower that feels strangely magical. There they meet Palamedes, the Black knight from King Arthur's court. He warns them that danger lurks in a world beneath their feet.
Heather, Pal and friends set off to rescue children who have been taken to this threatening underworld. No child will be forgotten on their watch. Heather and friends realise they have been specially chosen for this quest. They must use the talents they've been given in the battle to save Fablehouse and all the children who have found shelter there.
