Campion's Choice
Coins that have magical properties. Aliens. Scorpions. Attempted murder. Elvis alive and well and driving a moped. What more could you want? Mystery, adventure, fantasy? Look no further. Step right up and enjoy the show. This is Campion's Choice.Jack Campion was just an ordinary thirteen year old kid - well, maybe not that ordinary, not after the Dadster's accident - so ok, ordinary or not, the last thing he was expecting was all that whooshy stuff in the air raid shelter. And Tia Cole had a normal thirteen year old life - with her blind, piano playing mum and her irritating younger brother - and she was not expecting to end up, in a wood, fighting for her life against every animal that has ever wanted to eat a person.If only Clamp hadn't mentioned the Deathstalker. If only the Nomas had found the meteorite. If only Gidean St-George wasn't such a pain in the neck. Things might have been different.But they weren't different. So expect the extraordinary - expect Aliens, magic coins, sabre toothed tigers and the occasional bit of walking through walls. That way you won't be disappointed.This is Jack's story - just don't tell Tia.G.L. Wilson is a children's author and playwright. And he taught English. (But is not fussy about starting sentences with And).
