A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. Not all the layers are underground, and not all the lives belong to the living. A twelve-year-old boy named George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. On a school trip he's punished for something he didn't do. In a tiny act of rebellion, he lashes out at a small carving on the wall - unexpectedly breaking it off. And then something horrible does happen: a stone Pterodactyl unpeels form the wall and starts chasing him. George is already running before his mind starts trying to tell him this is impossible.

Best intense story EVER!
Great story if you know how to get into your characters. I read and re read this book, and it still has given me chills and anger and fear throughout the book. HIGHLY recommended for 11 and up children.
Once you finish book 1 then you won’t let go till the full trilogy is read and completed :)
no thank you
JIm Dale is one of the best narrator i have ever heard, unfortunately the story is not.
