The Curse is changed. You’ll never know. The truth is lost. The lie will grow.

The year is 1726 and the Royal Sorcerer of England is on the hunt for those who are magicborn… like Tempest and Thomas, who have just discovered that they are the lost Princess and Prince of Fairyland, bound by a deadly curse. So begins an exciting new series combining history and fantasy in an epic quest for survival. Join Peter as he shares the inspiration behind Magicborn a true story which starts in Kensington Palace, London and answers questions about writing historical fantasy and creating characters. There will be dazzling dressing up, spellbinding incantations and curious curses in this magical event.

Peter Bunzl grew up in South London in a rambling Victorian house with three cats, two dogs, one sister, an antique-dealer dad and an artist mum. He is a BAFTA-winning animator, as well as a writer and film-maker. Peter’s debut novel, Cogheart, has been shortlisted for lots of awards, including the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Like Lily and Robert, he loves adventures and reading penny dreadfuls, but wishes dearly that he had a mechanical fox called Malkin.
