Paperback / Softback




A high-energy, laugh-out-loud, fully illustrated adventure
story by much-loved actor Stephen Mangan and talented artist
Anita Mangan.
“[Escape the Rooms] is richly imagined and deeply
heartfelt, and Anita Mangan’s cartoonish and poignant illustrations
capture the tone perfectly … It reminded me a
little of The Wizard of Oz, with the children on a quest through
different lands to get home.” Hadley Freeman, Guardian

“It’s been described as a cross between Alice
in Wonderland and The Crystal Maze and
it manages to feel both classic and modern at the same time.” Good

The last thing Jack expected when he bungee-jumped at
the fairground was to go plummeting
right through the ground into the weird, wonderful

There he must face a series of puzzles and traps alongside
a mysterious girl called Cally, in order
for them to find their way home.

Throw in a murderous polar bear, hundreds of tiny yet ferocious
lions, some mind-blowing riddles, and get ready for a hilarious,
helter-skelter adventure like no other!

Escape the Rooms follows two children dealing with loss
on an amazing adventure.

Wildly funny and endlessly surprising, Escape the Rooms
is also a story about friendship, overcoming fears and being
kind to yourself.

Packed with fantastic pictures created by Stephen Mangan’s sister,
