The Lost People of Malplaquet

(2007)
(The second book in the Malplaquet Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
Follow Jamie in Lost People of Malplaquet, the second volume in a trilogy drawing inspiration from Gulliver's Travels and T.H. White's Mistress Masham's Repose, and from the beauty and magic of the eighteenth-century Landscape Gardens at Stowe. In this second book, the mystery deepens and darkens as we learn more about the Lilliputians in the strange gardens at Malplaquet. Their enemy Biddle takes over a nearby manor house, and his son starts at the school ' in the same class as Jamie. Nigriff helps Jamie and Granny to discover more of the garden's secrets, especially its links with Lilliput itself, and Vicky doesn't trust one of her Volunteer team. The tiny people try to 'gain the capital,' as the Prophecy states, General Thorclan is as commanding as ever, and Yenech finds a new female friend ... But the dangers are increasing: Jamie's brother, Charlie, is spending far too much time with young JohnBiddle, and Biddle himself is organising a huge Napoleonic Battle at Malplaquet as a threat to the little people. But he hasn't reckoned on the statues getting involved ... Beautifully illustrated by Jonny Boatfield, this is the long-awaited sequel to the already famous Temples of Malplaquet. Educational as well as hugely entertaining, it raises important ethical issues for older children.
