Bestselling author

The brand new mystery from the bestselling author of The Goldfish Boy.

Nate and his mother are running away, hiding out in a tumbledown cottage in the middle of a forest. When Mum heads off for provisions, and then doesn't return, Nate is left alone and afraid, with the dark closing in all around him. But comfort can come from the most unexpected of places – a mysterious girl trying to solve the clues of a treasure hunt and the reappearance of an old friend from his past. Will Nate find the bravery needed to face the troubles of his present and ultimately illuminate the future? A story of fear and hope, loneliness and friendship – full of the heart, engaging characters and propulsive mystery that made The Goldfish Boy a breakout hit. This endearing story is suitable for children aged 8 years and over. The Light Jar includes themes of psychological abuse in the home that may be distressing to some young listeners. Thompson sensitively and empathetically addresses these issues, offering hope and comfort.

'Lisa Thompson brings bags of empathy to a deftly plotted tale about an 11-year-old suddenly left to fend for himself.'
The Guardian

'Thompson’s ambitious, original and thoroughly absorbing book tells a big story with a light touch.'
Books for Keeps

'The Light Jar will secure [Thompson's] reputation as one of our most inventive writers for children of eight plus ... Nate is an enormously endearing boy hero – and this tale also has a cracking mystery running through it.'
The Times
