For as long as anyone can remember, children have made a wish on a cloud horse, never quite believing that their wishes will come true. But times are changing. The future of magic is in danger. Enemies are working together to destroy it - especially the magic of nature and its most powerful source, The Forever Tree. Unless three brave children fight back and believe in the impossible, soon magic and the cloud horses will be gone. Zam, Phoebe and Bathsheba don't yet know how powerful they are...
In Guardians of Magic the Costa award-winning, 2015-2017 UK Children's Laureate Chris Riddell weaves together a magical quest. This is the first title in The Cloud Horse Chronicles series.
