I don't know if the world counts as the world any more, not since the wars of the Destruction ...we're the leftover people going between the leftover places. In a time not far from our own, a colourful group of travellers brave the twisting, tricksy landscape of the Remaking, after Chaos ripped the world apart. They are the magicians, clowns, trapeze artists and musicians of Maddigan's Fantasia, healing the injured land with their gifts of wonder and laughter. Garland Maddigan, the 12-year-old daughter of Ferdy, the Fantasia's ringmaster, has made the trip before, but this journey offers frightening new challenges. Three mysterious children join the Fantasia and the sinister strangers who follow them become a dangerous enigma as Garland slowly unlocks their secret origin. Margaret Mahy is one of the world's best-loved authors, writing wonderfully funny children's stories and ground-breaking novels for young adults, thrilling millions of readers. Margaret is a member of the Order of New Zealand, an honorary doctor of letters and twice winner of Britain's Carnegie Medal for Children's Literature. Playing with time is a dangerous game ...would you dare?
This is the only Margaret Mahy book I can stand to actually read!
When I first saw Maddigan's Quest I was a bit weary of reading it - it seemed to silly and weird. But I decided to check it out of the library and ended up enjoying the book so much I had to get it for Christmas. The magic and the story of something that doesn't get used much makes this book a fantastic read. Although it is kinda big, it is well-worth spending your time reading it and getting sucked into this fantasy world of the Fantasia. I just wished, the TV Show was much better, or the book was made into a film!
