Fire breathing dragon

Archie Greene and the Alchemist’s Curse

Archie’s cousin, Thistle, is about to start his apprenticeship at the Museum of Magical Miscellany. But when it comes to his initiation, the firemark that burns into Thistle’s hand is a strange one, and Archie and Bramble are given it too.

The Golden Circle is the mark of an ancient alchemists’ club and when Archie and his cousins learn about a curse that threatens their beloved museum, they have no choice but to start their own alchemists’ club, and face the darkest kind of magic.

“The children all LOVE Archie and have created some pictures as we have gone through the second book …

… they are looking forward to book number three!  Is it definitely the last one?  They wanted me to ask if they were being made into films.  I think the mark of a good book is that you can picture it in your head as if it were a film.  Archie definitely falls into that category!  We can just imagine the scene in Quills with the door ray and the box seats and motion potions!

I am always recommending the books to groups on FaceBook!”
