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 betweenÂ Alice in WonderlandÂ andÂ The Crystal MazeÂ and it manages to feel both classic and modern at the same time.”Â Good HousekeepingÂ
“A beautiful and exciting adventure that ignites the imagination” Edith Bowman
“A brilliant, clever, kind of genius book” Graham Norton, Virgin Radio
