Length: 40,700 words (approx.)

Change has come to the village of Skerrils, and fourteen-year-old Callum is struggling to adjust. Important people have moved on; others have arrived.

Even the Mountain, once the scene of an epic adventure for Callum and his friends, has vanished in the October mist. But its power cannot stay hidden for long, for in that mist lurks a terrifying new presence that wishes to destroy all that Callum has ever fought for.

This presence is known only as 'The Other', and it will take alliances old and new to reconnect Callum with past magic if he is to stop it before everything is lost.

'McClure had me from the first four words!

Following on from Callum and the Mountain, we meet Callum and his friends two years down the line. This is a story about change - specific, individual change that comes inevitably as we grow, and also change itself - change and loneliness and how we connect. What it is to be human. McCLure's voice is confident and unique, and he has filled this sequel with the same vivid, vibrant, sometimes uncanny sense of place.

Callum and the Other - a story for our strange and difficult times.'

- Joan Lennon, most recently co-author with Joan Haig of Talking History: 150 Years of Speakers and Speeches for 8-12 year-olds
