Emma and her father are always on the move, travelling from place to place as her father’s work demands. Their new home, however, is different. There’s a frightening woman who lives down the hall: she bears an uncanny resemblance to a witch. A mysterious light comes from her apartment, and a small boy seems to be trapped inside.

School in this town is no happy place either, with an odd principal and a gang of girls who make tormenting Emma their special project. And strangest of all is the fact that there seem to be brownies - basement brownies, in the air vent in her bedroom. 

Haunted by visions of her mother, Emma travels through the brownie burrow to the valley of Hades to visit with the goddess Ceres, following a series of clues that lead her across the sea of memory to the centre of the world.

There, on an inhospitable rock floating in a sea of steaming lava, Emma must find a way to release her mother from the sea of memory and restore magic to both the brownie burrow and the human world above.


Excerpt

The goddess studied Emma for a moment.

“So small and unfinished, aren’t you, seedling,” Ceres smiled as she spoke. Then a look of astonishment crossed her face. “But you are not the one we were expecting. Not the Wanderer of the prophecy. No, but yet so full of power you do not yet realize.” She leaned in conspiratorially. Emma stepped forward to hear what she had to say.

“You feel it, don’t you,” Ceres whispered.

“I feel … something … ma’am,” Emma replied tentatively, as the uneasy feeling in her stomach grew stronger. The goddess stared into her eyes for several minutes longer than Emma thought she could bear. Then Ceres smiled broadly, and as she did so, several more wrinkles vanished and a tiger stripe of grey hair turned to lustrous brown–green with a flick of her head.

Emma P. (Age 9)
Root Bound is one of my favorite books and I have read LOTS!!! I can really connect with the character, Emma and not just because my name is Emma. While I was reading the book I saw that the next book "Water Works" is in the making I will simply DIE if I do not get that book!! The book is great I have recommended it to almost everyone I know. My favorite character ( besides Emma ) is either Piers or tiny Mat. I love how Piers is sooooooooooooo obsessed with his breakfast, and how Mat thinks he is so much better then everyone else. Root Bound is an amazing book and I hope that everyone who reads it loves it as much as I do.

Sal (Age 12)
I just finished your book. It was great! Totally bodacious. I specially liked how the Basement Brownies were called Basement Brownie and how there was an Under and an Over. I liked how the houses had roots that and could sneeze. I also found it interesting that everyone had a counterpart. It was interesting how the skinny Brownie "Piers" was obsessed with food when you would think a fat brownie would be obsessed with food. It must be hard when the name of your species is a food. It was a fun read. I think other kids would like it too.
