Lone Annie sees dragons in your future...She sees giants. She sees fire and water. She sees death. Finn's life in the village of Wichant is hard. Only his drawings of the wild coastline, with its dragon-shaped clouds and headlands that look like giants, make him happy.

Then the strange housekeeper from a mysterious clifftop mansion sees his talent and buys him for a handful of gold and then reveals to him seven extraordinary paintings. Finn thinks the paintings must be pure fantasy-such amazing scenes and creatures can't be real! He's wrong. Soon he is going to slip through the veil between worlds and plunge into the wonders and perils of The Glimme.

The Glimme by Emily Rodda  - stepping out of the Deltora Universe, Emily Rodda (Australian author) has created another beautifully developed fantasy suitable for a range of readers from 8 to 100. I love to recommend Emily Rodda because, in all of her books, the story isn’t so intense that younger readers can’t enjoy it.  But it’s developed so well that it’s not too babyish for an older or more reluctant reader to get into it too.
