Young Tom has been dumped by his parents on his great-uncle Percy in Oxford for the summer. The boy goes missing. In steps a toy bear called Bodley. The story revolves around the bond between Bodley and Bloomsbury, bear-in-residence in the British Museum. The plot is driven by the search for a highly important lost manuscript. A streetwise hero emerges in Russell Rat. Lives are at risk as the two bears seek refuge back in Oxford. Here, an inspired Bloomsbury finally grasps the meaning of everything, and Bodley gets to find out who he really is. The story balances on the cusp where childhood dreams fade away. Fantasy and reality mix and mingle. Young meets old, past meets present, silly meets serious. Talking animals serve up philosophy and humor. The book challenges fixed ideas about growing up, contemporary lifestyle, cultural values, generation gaps. It's an adult story for the young and a young story for adults. But first and foremost, this is entertainment from start to finish.
Henri, a young travel photographer with a big identity problem plays the sorcerer's apprentice to Conundrum, a fiendishly clever wordsmith and rogue magus promising ultimate knowledge of a dangerous sort. Their quest takes them on a journey of high adventure from Wales and London via Catalonia, Rome, Berlin, Moscow, Switzerland, Paris, Japan and Madeira to a dramatic finale on the rugged cliffs at the western extremity of the Algarve. But the secret lurking at the end of Southend Pier might after all be the key to the Holy Grail that is the dark mystery of Conundrum's Book. Or does the answer lie in the crazy jumble of Conundrum's seedy flat at 7 Moonbeam Mansions? A unique blend of unpredictable action, philosophical fireworks, outrageous behaviour, metaphysical speculation and some adult material of a rather unusual nature keeps the reader hooked right to the end.
