The long-awaited new edition of Peter Dickinson's cult classic trilogy, first published in 1969/1970.
England in the future - but an England that is less rather than more civilised. This is the time of The Changes - a time when people, especially adults, have grown to hate machines and returned to a more primitive lifestyle. It is a time of hardship and fear . . .
Margaret and Jonathan rescue an American spy who has come to England to investigate the uncanny Changes. Somehow, they have to smuggle him out of the country - even if it costs them their homes - or their lives.
Peter Dickinson began writing the books after he'd had a nightmare. The trilogy is not sequential; rather, each book explores a different aspect of England during the time that simply became known as The Changes.
