Join us for the launch of Hachette's new book "The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep" by H. G Parry. 


About the book:

The ultimate book-lover’s fantasy, this sparkling debut is a “delight of magic and literature, love and adventure” (Kat Howard) featuring a young scholar with the power to bring literary characters into the world.

For his entire life, Charley Sutherland has concealed a magical ability he can’t quite control: He can bring characters from books into the real world.

But when literary characters start causing trouble throughout the city and threatening to destroying the world, he learns he’s not the only one with his ability. Now it’s up to Charley and his reluctant older brother, Rob, to stop them–hopefully before they reach The End.
