Silent Mountain by Michelle Briscombe

Fiction for children aged 9-12.

Jack Jupiter is not cool, he is not brave and he is altogether unremarkable. That is, until his grandmother uses her ‘talent’ and foresees a terrible future for Jack. With this, our young hero is dragged into a world of fantastical creatures and unrelenting enemies who force Jack to muster whatever courage he can find to escape, discover the truth about his father and reach the mythical Silent Mountain.

First novel of a series of books featuring Jack Jupiter with an ecological theme.

Silent Mountain has been nominated for the Tir na n-Og award, and was the subject of interpretation for pupils of Broad Haven Primary School who were crowned victors of Bookslam 2014.
