 After the stunning work she produced for E. Nesbit’s wonderful ‘Five Children and It’ last year, Ella has once again worked her magic on the latest in the Alma Classics range,  producing this glorious colour cover and over a dozen exquisite and humorous monochrome vignettes! 

When the children accidentally destroy a carpet in their London home with fireworks, their parents replace it with a second-hand one and unwittingly trigger a chain of events and wild adventures that take them to far-flung destinations such as India and a remote tropical island! 

So join us in celebrating the return of the much-loved characters of Cyril, Anthea, Robert and Jane and the unique illustrator who was really the only choice to introduce them to a new generation in this thrilling sequel! The Phoenix and the Carpet is out next month from Alma Books.
