Previously published as Maddigan's Fantasia (ISBN 1869505611), this book ties in with a 13-part children's series, screening in the UK on BBC TV, Channel Nine in Australia and TV3 in NZ in 2006, and includes a colour section of stills from the series. In a time not too far from o...ur own, a colourful and bizarre group of travellers brave a post apocalyptic landscape - the acrobats, clowns, trapeze artists, jugglers and musicians who make up Maddigan's Fantasia. At the centre of the troupe is 12-year-old Garland, daughter of the late Ferdy Maddigan, Fantasia's ringmaster. Garland has made this trip many times, but this time the journey offers frightening new challenges - including three mysterious children who join with no explanation of their origin, who become a dangerous enigma for Garland who slowly unlocks their secret. The story is vintage Mahy - a stunning and imaginative story with superb characters. The television series was filmed in New Zealand, with award-winning Australian producer Ewen Burnett (Bootleg BAFTA 2003 award for Best Children's Television Drama) and John Barnett of South Pacific Pictures, the company that produced Whalerider, and is destined to become an international classic. The book is scheduled to release just before the television series screens.
