“Timothy looked at this Christmas cake shape and his eyes grew wider with a realisation of fate. ‘Marzipan Mountain!’ he cried outright and without hesitation. ‘I’m going to Marizpan Mountain.’
If we had stood beside him at that particular moment in time, we would have wondered by . Maybe it was the bang on the head that made him want to do this, or because there was nothing to go home to. Perhaps it was just that Marizpan Mountain was there, a true adventure in the waiting.”
Timothy Other: The Boy Who Climbed Marzipan Mountain by L. Sydney Abel
Timothy Other’s birthplace has always been a mystery. 12 year-old Timothy lives at the Dreams and Hopes Orphanage where he was abandoned as an anonymous infant. Timothy’s world crumbles when the orphanage is repossessed by the bank and comes under the strict rule of the horrid Mr. Sterner and the scaly-skinned Ms. ‘Fishy’ Finn. He escapes the Dreams and Hopes Orphanage and travels to the bizarre world of Marzipan Mountain, where he befriends some amazing creatures. Timothy seeks to discover his true origins and becomes embroiled in a matter of life and death, facing the evil forces that crave the secret of ‘Golden Life’.
